As you know, Hunter has been hard at work building a unit of built-ins for our office. Today, I can proudly say, that they are complete! A lot of blood and sweat (there's no crying in home-decorating) went into them, and they look fantastic because of it. Hunter did a majority of the work, and then I helped level & paint.
Here's a reminder of where we started:
A few days ago, with Maggie's good eye paired with mine, we styled them beautifully.
I love the look of styled, useful, and inviting shelves. Here are a few of our styled shelves inspiration pictures:
Following Jenny's advice, we started with the big pieces
and moved out from there, adding books and tchotchkes (the chic word for knick-knacks) as we worked.
We even had to rummage around the house to find a few extra little pieces to add to the shelves. Are you ready for the end result? Ta-Da!
I am so so happy with how they turned out, and I've found myself stopping to admire them every day this week. It is definitely the look I wanted, and I think the room is so much brighter and happier. I am so excited to snuggle in the rocking chair with a good book soon.
