Sneak Peeks and Bookshelves Styling Inspiration.

2013-05-06 10.45.02
I decided to keep the wall colour behind the built in bookcase as is because of two main reasons .#1) it actually has its own pop of accent on those sliding doors and #2)is below.

This beauty brought in a great dose of colour and I really didn’t want any quarrels between it and the accent wall regarding who the center of attention is in the spaceSmile.

I am the happiest girl on earth right now because of this orange sectional. It’s no secret that orange is my favourite colour, so I believe this beauty was just waiting on us to come and get her. We were actually close to purchasing the Neo sectional from DWR, and had just received fabric samples in the mail before my trip to High Point Market. I am so thrilled that hadn’t  purchased the Neo yet because the Stacey(my name for this beauty) is waaaay better(sorry DWR). The fabric is so luxurious,  and  most importantly it is child friendly aka spot resistant. It goes without saying that it is super comfortable and perfect for lounging. The sleek design still gives it a formal flair which is one of the criteria I also wanted in the seating for this space.

These scrumptious Italian pieces were purchased from The Tomasella peeps at High Point Market.

Now some inspiration for the fun stuff:

t’s all about self expression when styling a bookcase or built in. I am looking forward to filling mine with books and mementos…

Blessings and happy Tuesday my friends. XX


  1. Love it all! I'm a super fan of orange, animal prints / rugs, and sliding doors of any kind, so to say I think you've got the elements for a fantastic space is a complete understatement. Hope you'll share the room when complete. Really, I could almost call it done "as is" but I know more is on the way :) Robin

  2. It IS all a about self expression and I love the Italian sectional! Orange is a happy colorand I'm seeing it everywhere! I like all of this bookshelf inspiration. Mine is in need of a redo:)

  3. Well, I believe we were separated at birth. Do you not know that orange is my favorite color? Gurl. This is insane. I'm flying down to come sit in that sofa. And yes, I'll bring you a pot of oxtails and a bottle or rum cream. stat.

  4. Happy TUESDAY DEAR GIRL! You know, I am lovin' orange more and more in my home! My studio is all white and it is the perfect place to change out pillows and such for each season! Orange just might make it in here with a throw or pillow!
