Choose A Colour Scheme
Incorporating too many colours into your shelf display can typically create a messy, distracted and overwhelming look to your room. This will ultimately create the opposite outcome of that you are looking for. I made sure to leave some “empty space”, as this is necessary for achieving a minimal style display. Leaving some empty space on your display will make your shelves look bigger, cleaner, and tidier. If you want to follow a minimalist style, you don't always need to choose a monochrome theme. Why not opt for something tonal, which uses similar colours to really make an impact.

Don't Overcrowd Your Space
When you begin to compile your shelf display, it's important to declutter and get rid of any unwanted items. It may take you a few attempts to get your perfect composition, and ultimately something you are completely happy with. Make sure to leave empty spaces, as these will be your best friend for helping you create something clean and minimal.

Opt For Different Object Sizes, Shapes, and Textures
Lastly, using items in your bedroom shelf display of different sizes, shapes, and textures can really change the whole vibe of your display. It will help add interest and to draw attention to your shelf display. Using big items will help create a statement, and be the stand-out part of your display, whilst smaller items can help fill spaces and bring the entire look together nicely.


For my own minimalist bedroom shelf display, I wanted to get creative and have a more summery vibe to my space. I made sure to keep things clean, minimal and neutral, to help keep things balanced and not go over the top. The main colour scheme for this shelf display was warms neutral tones of creams, browns and oranges, which is perfect for the summer months, and something that is very calming and welcoming.

For me, I think illustrations and abstract poster artwork is the perfect choice for the home, as they are so minimal, so simple, yet so stylish. For my feature display shelves, I chose both the Abstract Landscape Poster and the Abstract Lemon Tree Poster. Both these posters feature warm tones of yellows, oranges, and browns that help bring a calming, summery feel to my personal space. I picked both posters in A3 size, as I wanted to make them a statement feature of my shelf display, in order to create a focal point to the shelves.
