How do you make a very lovely but lonely marble shelf look stunning? Well, me and Amelia have taken the white marble shelf and styled it 3 different ways to give you some ideas on where to go with it so it doesn’t look so lonely. Of course, being Audenza all 3 ways are somewhat exuberant but should you be of a more minimalist persuasion you get the gist, and being Audenza flowers and foliage play a large part in the styling.
Green and gold
We’ve gone for the full wall styling here just to show how a few faux house plants and a marble shelf can make a vibrant and exciting vignette of green and gold in your home. The marble shelf contains a hammered gold tray propped up for lots of sparkle, with a gold plant pot filled with artificial trailing fern and a gorgeous gold pineapple candle holder standing on old books to give it height. So lots of gold for a really luxe look but softened with stacks of faux plants that are a dream for the non-green fingered amongst us. It couldn’t be easier!
There are five glass vases on this shelf of varying heights and colour and they are filled, very simply, with whatever is growing in the garden. Branches of magnolia, weigela and lilac for height with flower heads of rhododendrons for the smaller vases. An artificial trailing fern completes the look and extends the vignette for more interest. This floral extravaganza is so easy to do any time of the year and doesn’t take any arranging, they really are just plonked in the vases – simple, quick and gorgeous.
A bit of tropical and a bit of whimsy all snuggled up together creates a white marble shelf that has the look of a Victorian collector’s display. Curios from around the world come together for a touch of the exotic, with a pink toucan money box, a cheeky monkey plant pot and some flamingos for a laugh. Lots of lush artificial greenery and faux gloriosa lily flowers completes the look.
Three different looks – all on a green theme, and all quick and easy to do – just grouping items together with a theme, and stacks of lots of greenery to soften and warm the look.
