A warehouse conversion in London

Warehouse conversions always excite me, especially when one of my favourite designers has had some part of it. This one-bedroom conversion on the third floor of a renovated Victorian warehouse was the home (and could still be?) of Ilse Crawford as seen way back in Jo's post from 2007, and is currently for sale. It was a collaboration between Ilse, Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen and 6a Architects. The long wall of storage hides the front door and a washroom. The bookcases along the opposite wall make me giddy - to have so much open storage for displaying books and trinkets! (Although the current state of clutter on the shelving is making me have a slight coronary). It is so bright with all those large windows, and OMG those Zellige tiles will forever be a favourite of mine. You can find details of this fabulous home on The Modern House

A Polish apartment

I think what I love most about this 70 m2 apartment in Sopot, Poland is its freshness. The light, bright rooms, all the white and that standout shelving system/room divider with all its beautiful greenery. Such a clever way to divide the space. Let's start at the front door. Yes, yes, walk further in, turn and then you start to smile. Yes. See what I mean. Aquarius by LOFT, a designer workshop founded by Magdalena Adamus.

LOVE!

I cannot wait until I have my third floor library set up instead of having book piles all over the floor. This library corner is giving me heart palpitations. What a gem!!! Via Peti Lau.

Book storage round-up

There are MANY projects I need to tackle in my house. One of them is turning the room on the third floor into a library. Currently all of my books and magazines are in piles on the floor in that room (along with all of our excess furniture) and it is driving me crazy that I don't have them organized and cannot access them easily. Unfortunately this project is not at the top of the to-do list, so in the meantime I thought I would do a round-up of rooms with bookcases, shelving...some really amazing ways books have been stored and put on display, so I can dream of the day when I have my library all set.

How to fake a bay window

This is a fantastic idea - build some bookcases on either side of a window and you end up with storage, a window seat and throw in some mirrors and trim and you have the cutest little reading nook in a 'bay window'. Via Granit.
