As if the “selfie” is not enough to tell people online who you really are, the “shelfie” is also becoming viral on social media platforms, especially Instagram.

A shelfie shows your Instagram followers your inner life. It is very revealing because it shows the books your read, the personal mementos you collect, or the equipment you need for your hobbies.

Organizing a still life or modern tablescape design can be more than just for fun; it could be something very deep and artistic.

Here are some of the best tips and tricks in creating the best sheflie ever:

  • Bud vase. An odd looking glass or a unique ceramic vessel with only one stem budding out from it can already tell a lot about you.slideshow-shelfie-01_161450952820.jpg_gallery_max
  • Stacking. Things look better when stacked on one another, whether these are books, DVDs, or towels. Be creative and don’t just stack them up horizontally or vertically.slideshow-shelfie-02_161450715089.jpg_gallery_max

  • Don’t be stereotypical with your design. Don’t group items together according to their origin, manufacturer, or theme. Incorporate and mix them up together. slideshow-shelfie-09_161456674053.jpg_gallery_max
  • The simpler the better. You don’t have to put all of your best items in one bookshelf or table just to tell people who you really are. Remember; less is more.
