The minimalist style can be a tough one to approach for some. It can be easy to overcomplicate and over-clutter spaces in an attempt to achieve a particular look.

Minimalism tends to emphasize simplicity, natural materials, and openness. Instead of clumping items into one spot, they are strategically placed to create balance. A bookshelf is a great place to practice this kind of styling technique to see if it is something that you like. The shelving provides several layers to practice balancing your accent décor while decluttering the space at the same time. A good rule of thumb is to limit three or four items per shelf and stagger tall and short items to offset the concentration of décor.

Minimalism is a great approach to freshen up and bring order to any chaotic space. Take a look at how these decorators used a minimalist approach to style their bookshelves and see how you can replicate this technique within your home.
