Alright, I’m going to let you in on a little secret if you promise not to judge me. I moved into my apartment six months ago (time really flies), and I’m still finishing up the décor. I started out with virtually nothing, so it’s been a long journey on top of my full-time job and the seemingly endless list of my other commitments. But slow and steady wins the race. Out of a few particular areas where I felt stuck, my bookshelves seemed to be taunting me all of this time, as I had no idea how to get started on making them go from a place to toss random art or décor that I couldn’t find a home for to a work of art. A colleague of mine introduced me to an app called Intro, and everything immediately changed.
Intro introduces you to experts and in-demand specialists who can solve almost any problem that you’re facing, whether it’s related to your home, career, style, health, or something else. Obviously, I need some help with my apartment, so I got to scrolling through the interior designers. Reading that Shawn Henderson has decorated the homes of some of my favorite actors, I quickly booked a slot on his calendar and got my home ready for the consultation.
A quick FaceTime call that felt as easygoing as one of the many apartment tours that I’ve been giving my friends led me to some major realizations. I showed him around my space, and we quickly settled on the area that I could use the most help with—my bookshelves. Although his advice was fascinatingly applicable to every part of my home, I ended up being able to completely transform the open shelving that had me lost for months in just a few days. Scroll on to read the three great tips that I just have to share with you all.
