Do I need bookshelves?
Well, maybe I do altho I rather like this “arrangement” where all my books are handy. Recent past, present, and future. Fall a good time to reconsider shelves. Always a new beginning, a new season, moving indoors after summer days and the freshening up projects that will make an impact. Here are five:
Paint a Room – or two. biggest bang for your buck as they say. Use a jewel tone like Chinese red, or aubergine in your powder room. Or use a bright white where before you had color.
Plump up Pillows – another big impact, replace the tired with new. Add texture with velvet, add print with zebra, add shimmer with silk. Big squares 22 inch always good. Down filled of course.
Wallpaper Again – not the usual wall covering but the new and different version. Use a lovely greigey vine with a shimmer of gold in your hallway or a bright graphic in the kitchen.
Cover a Chair – loving velvets right now. Use an almost white lineny velvet, wears well, gets better with age.
Built Ins for Storage, even Books – have custom made, designed for your particular needs. Open shelving for books and to display collections and/or artwork, doors on lower half to hide the clutter, organized of course.
