A decorating trend and social media phenomenon, ‘the shelfie’ originally emerged in response to the clutter-clearing movement. What started as a label for beautiful bookshelves is now applied to artfully stylish arrangements of collectables, flowers, photos, crafting ephemera, perfume bottles – and of course books. And shelfies don’t just appear on shelves, but also on desks, worktops and fireplaces.
