Entries in shelving (32)
I grew up having it drilled in my head that you NEVER EVER wear shoes in the house. And I still believe that. Because I don't want the dog shit you just stepped on smeared on my antique kilim. Bring some cute little slippers/flats when I invite you over. Maybe one of these days I'll just stencil it on the floor like above.
Love the setup of these bookcases. The first photo is just a freaking food pantry, yet everything is so well organized you almost have to look twice to realize it's not just some knick knacks on display. And the second photo shows how stacking books in small piles makes it look sculptural and more interesting graphically.

The library rules. No not "ssshhh no talking". I mean this amazing library rules! The house too. The book lined shelves provide transition between the old house and the new extension, screening the open plan living areas from the hallway and front door. Black, white and wood, my favourite combo, are accentuated by the polished concrete floor and occasional burst of colour. By Melbourne based design atelier Techné.
When devouring the portfolio of photographer Jonas Ingerstedt the other day, I found a few photos with elements I wanted to take note of.
I love wood left in its natural state - even plywood. This wall of shelving is so simple. LOVE!
I am a little distracted by the really cool Magis chairs but after wiping off my drool I noticed the rod along the ceiling - awesome minimalist idea for basic lighting.
And speaking of lighting, I'm still smitten with bare bulb light fixtures, and hanging them in this set-up is really creative. Especially when highlighting objects directly below.
I thought I'd do a little something different today since I spent just about all day yesterday organizing parts of my house, taking photos, sorting through the photos and tweaking the photos. (Amazing how time consuming this ends up being). I acquired a few things recently so I thought I'd share them with you. Keep in mind I still have plans to tear this house down in the (hopefully) near future but in the meantime I still need to keep myself amused with decorating it.
I did a little something in my dressing room which you can check out over on closetrivalry.com. On the same wavelength as that little project, there are a couple of new additions to my living room. First, I decided that I was tired of not really having anything over the sofa (it's been 5 or 6 years) and since I have next to no space to display anything in this house, I decided to stick a shelf there. My husband took me out to a lumber yard and we found some gorgeous raw edge planks of wood. We bought 3 and used 2 in the dressing room and one over the sofa. My vintage cameras have been in storage for a while so I pulled those out and for some reason I like displaying lightbulbs (but I need a better bowl) so there we have it - a little display of stuff and things.
