Almost as soon as I laid eyes on this space (featured on the Glitter Guide yesterday) I knew it had to be mentioned over here. Is it not to die for? The colors are so special and I love the styling on the bookcase. There’s hardly a surface that I’m not infatuated with. Let’s talk DIY-able details…
1…I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself lately to really “get” bookshelf styling. I think there’s definitely a fine art to it, and in my opinion it’s a lot harder than it looks to get right. Luckily, I think we can all take a cue from these built-ins. If you look closely, not all of the shelves are filled to the brim with books and accessories. Some cubbies only hold one or two objects, but it looks intentional rather than sparse. It’s time we kicked the old legend to the curb that says “the more the better” when it comes to shelf styling.
2…Aside from the gorgeous reclaimed wood table, I adore the mismatched chairs. The metal seating reads very industrial, but that’s softened both by the faux fur cushions in the seat and by the pop of yellow in the plastic shell end chairs. Mixing and matching dining room seating is very on trend at the moment, and is a simple concept for us to recreate in our own homes.
3…Oh how I wish I could arrange flowers. These seem effortless, but I’m sure they took some thought. The variety of glass vessels makes for one beautiful setting and wouldn’t cost us much to mimic – All it would take is a trip or two to a local thrift store. Even the burlap place mats could be recreated on a dime with a yard or two from the fabric store. This space and event has totally inspired me to host a brunch for my girlfriends one weekend soon…Who else can’t wait until Spring??
