… simplicity and calm. Things are crazy around the world. Recession, war and greed gone wrong but maybe just maybe a change is in the air. A room full of books, sunshine through a window and a few well designed pieces of furniture. Bliss. Bench by Barnaby Tuke.
Ok, I’m still thinking about bookshelves and this room certainly isn’t lacking in the bookshelf department. I adore this space. So light and airy and the furniture is so plush you would just sink into it after grabbing a book from the shelves. What a smart idea to break it up a bit with a space for a tall mirror. And don’t even get me started on that light fixture…
…this living room? office? I’ve posted it before but whatever it is I am in love, and it needs it’s own post. I have been thinking alot lately how I need a proper place to put my collection of shelter mags. They are currently piled in my office and in a bookcase in the
dungeon basement. I’m thinking of some type of unit in my office to replace the revamped wardrobe unit I have in there currently, or making the wall in my bedroom opposite the bed floor to ceiling shelving. The magazines in this photo just look…beautiful. A little bit of mid-century modern always gets me going – and those tulip chairs are perfect in the space. *SIGH* I’m definitively loving this.
Rickita wrote us recently looking for ideas: “I currently live in an approximately 450 sq studio apartment. I’ve been trying to find inspiring decorating ideas for small spaces. Do you have any pictures of studio apartments: specifically wall decoration and storage ideas? I would appreciate the help!” 450 sq ft is pretty small but I am a firm believer that living in a small space doesn’t mean it has to be filled with small stuff. My favourite small spaces include walls painted in bold colours or covered in fun wallpaper, some large furnishings, and oversized artwork (or large groupings of artwork). Hopefully the following photos inspire anyone living in a small space.
