Styling these built-in bookshelves was one of my very first projects, and it’s still one of my favorites! I was so excited to get an email from this client who had this giant bookcase that greeted people as they walked into her home. She just wasn’t quite sure what to do with so many shelves! It can be hard to create a cohesive look in such a large space, so armed with an hour and a few new pieces from my inventory, we got to work. Now the space looks not only cohesive, but fresh and inviting! It reflects her and her husband’s style and also works for their lifestyle (there are some baskets and boxes on the lower shelves that house everyday things they use). ⠀

It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes about the home—”Design is coming to grips with one’s real lifestyle, one’s place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s well-being.” – Albert Hadley
