A Bookcase

Emily posted this image yesterday and I can't get it out of my head so I thought I would let it rest here. Love the mixed frames, love how the TV blends in but is not hidden, love the rug, and I especially love that bookcase. Oh, and the garden stool is pretty fabulous itself. I have been wanting one, but really have no need for it so I was not willing to pay a lot. Well, the other day I was T.J. Maxx and I came across one for $30. I love it. The only change I would make is to reupholster the chair in a fabric like this.

I like your reupholtery choice, and the Camel connotation! I had a quick look at the others too, the Brooke in Orange is lovely

I love the frames above the chair.

I really like that! We are planning to take out the cabinets in our living room, and it had never occurred to me to use something so streamlined in their place. I bet Ikea has something like that-- and it might be just the "low" to balace all the "high". Thanks for posting!

Great space. Jennifer found a garden stool at TJ Maxx, too. I saw them there... and thought it was a great price!

I love those frames. I've really been into stacking frames like that lately!

It has a great casualness to it - and it has that great mix of frames that we talk about! xo

I can see why you loved this look so much. I agree, it is wonderful. Art work is very cool.

Happy for the fabric link... I am trying to reupholster my baby rocker and need fun ideas. So, if you have any I would love some! My little guy had a bday this weekend too! He is not so little any more. :(

I like this image too. I like interiors that look like they have evolved into what they are, in a real way.

Oh I love the artwork propped up on the wall.

I love all the books stacked throughout the space. Makes me want to take a trip to Half Price Books.

Wow, do we have similar taste! I looked at this picture and thought the exact same thing---love everything but the chair. Love your Weinrib fabric pick. Want to decorate my next apartment? : ) XO Katie

Love the fabric that you would choose. How about you recreate this little scene except "Paulify it"...it would look even that much better, I am sure of:-)

simplesong said...

love the frames + how they're layered too!

angela hardison said...
