  • String Pocket Shelving in mint green @stringfurniture
  • Plants by @cassius_coco

  • Washi tape by @mtmaskingtape_uk
  • Spray painted tin cans, painted with Cool Candy and Malachite Light Gold NC Acrylic by @montanacans
  • Decorative glass bottles by @ikeauk

This shelfie happened thanks to @etsyuk who let me choose some shelfieable objects from their extensive range to show you how you don’t need to spend a fortune to rustle up something you love to look at.

I homed in on @_studioemma and decided to use three of her delicious coloured concrete objects in her ‘Ice cream’ colourway as a starting point for this shelfie.

I adore the cool and sophisticated robin egg/Tiffany blue with the rust and chalky lilac and found it was a joy to work with.

Along with the Pocket String shelving unit in green @stringfurniture I feel it makes for a playful yet grown-up combination (the pink Thames plastic shards were second-in-command’s idea: a genius pop of colour, don’t you think?). I hope you like it.
