I haven’t shown you this part of my living room yet. I needed a storage solution to keep books (I have a ton!), vases (I have a ton of those too!), candles and what not. I wanted a neutral solution so that focus would be on the things I put on the top to decorate and not on all the things I am storing.
As much as I love a big open bookcase – I even had one in my old home – it has a tendency to look messy. Books in various colours and shapes – even if colour coordinated as I am always preaching to my friends – was just a little too colourful for the look and feel I wanted for my living room.
The cupboards are Bestå from IKEA. I would have loved a wall full of Montana, but as I had just bought an apartment and needed to buy furniture and decorate the whole thing, IKEA had to do. And I like it! It works well, I think – and I did get my Montana on this wall.
I’ve already changed the arrangement on the top since I shot these photos (what else is new).
Want to see more of my living room? Check out this post and click on the tag ‘livingroom’ right at the bottom of this post. I am still waiting for my new dining table to complete the room. I have a temporary one, but it is not worth showing here. I promise to do a tour, when the last pieces come together.
