A Different Perspective

bookshelvesbookshelves

How cool are these bookshelves? I just love how original they are. They spark one of those “ah ha, oh yesss” moments in your head and just push you to look at things a little bit differently. I love when something does that, don’t you?

These are from a Kate Spade inspiration shoot from 2010 (one of my favorites!) which I just happened to come across again. And I’m glad I did. As we kick off 2012, I’m eager to be surrounded by fresh ideas and new perspectives, just like this one.

I hope everyone’s return to the real world has been fairly painless today. Do something to treat yourself tonight! I’m going to yoga and reading the new Matchbook Mag from cover to cover.

A Place for Everything

Hello friends. Is it only Tuesday still? Just counting down the days until I’m on vacation for a week on Nantucket Island….

Anyway, I’ve been searching for a perfect bookcase/storage unit for my studio apartment for some time now. I’ve had the idea of what I’ve wanted for a while, but because of price and time and other (lame) factors, I just haven’t bought one yet. I need it mostly for storage, and because the shelves I have now are mismatched and from freshman year of college. Everything else in my apartment has grown up since I’ve graduated, so it’s time my shelving does too! I need a stylish place for all of my books, journals, magazines, champagne glasses, photos and other fun trickets. Plus all of these fabulous Glitter Guide “Style at Home” segments are making me antsy to do some extra decorating, just in case they show up at my door with a camera.  :)

Of course, now that I’m about to leave for vacation I’m finally ready to commit to one…I’m almost positive! So until I can make the trip to the store, put it all together, and style it with all of my favorite things, let’s take a look at of some exceptionally inspiring bookshelves and collections…
