Here we go again....more bookshelves. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw a preview of my flea market finds.
That is MY favorite thing to do because finding small items are pretty easy. Old books....small tchotchke's. Had to look up the spelling of that word....wouldn't you hate to get it in a spelling bee.
Here is the before
Since I am doing the whole room I wanted to get this part of the accessorizing done before the furniture comes next week. That way I can see where I need to add.
My inspiration was clean, minimal......a bit of "Nantucket, coastal with some vintage thrown in". Duh. My favorite style.
Some of my finds....
So let's start with the left side.
I asked her to take everything down before I got there. Then I did my usual organizing of books and such into piles.
You might think it looks sparse but since there are so many shelves I wanted plenty of space for the eye to rest. Also...I would like to find a few vintage pieces of coastal art to add in. I used my favorite baskets from Ikea and it was very hard to part with those vintage cream jars on the top shelf!
Here is the other side....
The metal letter almost stumped me....I kept trying to find a place for it vertically and it was only when I placed it on it's side that I had my ah ha moment.
Moral...don't give up....
Again...room to add a few things after the final install.
Here is the before of the other side.
Yes...the cable box is there but I have some ideas for this area.....
And the big picture
A few close shots
Love these fabric balls I found at Scott's.
Picked this little beauty up at a thrift store.
Organic texture from West Elm.
More organic plant life
Nice to add some greenery with boxwood
I can't believe I found this jar at Homegoods!
This metal cash box was also very hard to give up...I mean it is so my color and style right?
Another Homegoods find....I just added the metal number.
I also found this real shell at Homegoods in the clearance isle....I'm a lucky girl.
Along with this horse on a stand.
The good thing about this install is that whatever doesn't work will fit in my house....win....win right?
More to come on this pretty space as it comes together.
Have a peaceful Sunday my friends....
