Now that my kitchen is complete, I have been thinking about other rooms in my house that desperately need help. My bedroom is a biggie. It is so hideous right now. Pale yellow walls, and last March I ripped out the huge closet that I didn’t need. This is essentially what it’s looked like since then.
For the wall you see there, across from the bed, I’m thinking of shelving to house the knick knacks I love but don’t go anywhere else in the house, and for all my magazines that to my horror, currently reside in the dungeon/basement. I’m leaning towards 2 white Ikea Expedit shelving units (the 16 cube ones). So for my Flickr finds today, I thought I’d see how people are using their Expedits bookshelves.

I’d like to use a couple/few cubes along the bottom for cat beds, because I’m hoping it’ll get at least some of the cats off the bed at night so I can have room to move. One of the photos above, ernmcc’s, shows what I mean, but then I found this one….
… 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.
