Mix & match some harmony & some contrast – some upright, some horizontal. Keep some shelf spaces exclusively as center pieces for displaying special loved & meaningful items. Signature items that speak about you & your history. Perhaps a pen, a journal, a picture, or pictures, or your favorite collectibles. The things you love & enjoy to have around you.
