“Selfie” has become the coined term for the act of taking a photo of yourself and posting it on social media. Stars such as, Kim Kardashian, have even published selfie books! Really? It was even, for a short time, believed to be an acknowledged medical condition, “selfitis”! It was found to be a hoax but prior to that, the newly classified medical condition spread like wild fire through social media, it went viral almost overnight!
It’s only natural that the home design world would get their own term! The latest and greatest thing in social media is the “shelfie”. A photograph of carefully put together still life collections. Originally being photographs of items on a shelf, the term “shelfie” now encompasses all digital photos of still life collections. These collections can be anything from; groupings of food items on a table; eye glasses, books and a cup of coffee; even clothing….anything precisely placed and photographed.
Social media stars, with a good sense of style and design, create “shelfies” that serve followers as design advice, a glimpse into a glam lifestyle or ideas for home decor. See some of my favorite “shelties” below!
