This would make a great display for any industry awards your team has won, along with some positive quotes or inspiring prints.

By contrast, a dark background looks dramatic and intriguing, add unusual trinkets for a great talking point to get ideas flowing in a brainstorming room.

Your #shelfie can be functional and include items you need day to day, but remember to give space to your objects so it doesn’t look cluttered and disorganised.

If you have a kitchen or break area in your office, adding layers of mismatched plants instantly gives a relaxed homely feel. (Cats optional!)

Perhaps your office needs to be very clean and formal, you can still add a touch of fun and kitsch with a playful #shelfie tucked away in the bathroom.
