Kevin Dumais favourites

A 2-story bookcase would be a dream come true. I'd never have to throw out a shelter mag or book ever again, and a place to display every knick knack I have stashed in the basement. *sigh*

Graphic photography as artwork, and a stunning statement chandelier. YES!!!

Clarisse Reade

Clarisse Reade is an interior designer from Brazil who is apparently not a fan of minimalism. Layer upon layer of funiture, art and knick knacks appears to be Clarisse's signature style and I think she does it really well. None of these spaces look overly crowded and instead of wanting to run and hide, I want to devour every inch. Lovely spaces. (Hope the owners have housekeepers - can you imagine dusting those shelves??)

Killin' time

I have been on holidays these past 2 weeks and dear gawd did I need this break (at least from one of my jobs). Since Tuesday I've been pretty much stuck at home during the day which I welcomed, because it meant getting lots of things done I have been putting off - including several tasks involving organzing something or other. Yesterday, after walking to the post office to pick up some hot boots, it was time to organize the bookshelves in my bedroom. I really don't like having all this book storage in my bedroom (to me it's like bad feng shui - too much visual stimulation for a room that's supposed to give me tranquility), but it was the only free wall in my tiny house that could house my magazine collection and some books. I threw some of the older magazines out because holy smokes I have far too many, and made the piles neat again. Once the contents were organized (and shrunk down a bit) I went out to the storage shed and dug out some apple baskets and a couple wooden crates I had purchased some time ago at an antique shop out in the boonies. I am a FREAK for rustic/industrial storage options, and these, along with my vintage metal locker baskets, helped in the wrangling of my crap. I'm a happy camper now, and I think I can sleep a little better tonight knowing it's not a disaster. (P.S. Before the hubby moved in, the shelves looked like this, and after when I de-feminized the space, the room looked more like this).

Book storage

I love books and magazines. I have a pretty healthy collection, especially of decor magazines (although on black box recycle days I am slowly getting rid of old ones as I don't think I'll be referring to decor mags from 2004 anytime). Right now I have a couple of Ikea Expedit shelving units in my bedroom but I have come to the conclusion that I don't want all that visual clutter and stimulation in a space I am supposed to use to relax in. My favourite book storage area is the dining room - I love how it can look like a library one minute and a dining space the next. Where do you guys store your books?
Book storage always catches my eye when I'm doing blog research and because I haven't done a themed post in a while I thought I'd find some book storage/shelving photos. (I did a post on this topic a while ago here).

From Lithuania

Back in January I blogged about a new e-magazine from Lithuania called Lamų slėnis (Llamas' Valley). The photography is spectacular, so I thought I'd do an encore and show you photos from one of their latest issues. (I just noticed they have a new issue out a couple days ago - might need to do another post!)
