some beautiful shelves on ebay Germany that have served me well in the kitchen.
Turns out, I actually bought a whole shelving system back then. Most of which I didn't have room for and consequently got squirreled away in the basement... only to be forgotten...
Until now that is !
I'm very far from beeing a minimalist. Obviously. But over the last few
months I've been feeling more and more overwhelmed and stressed out by
the cheer amount of stuff that I've accumulated. Stuff that needs to be
looked after, displayed in a pleasant manner, dusted, cleaned etc etc.
Not to mention all the things hidden away and lurking behind those Ikea
So yes, I've finally put these awesome shelves to very good use. Much more elegant and way bigger than the Tomado shelves I had previously installed on that bedroom wall... All my random stuff spread out in the hall and in parts of the living room now has a very nice place to live. Plus I've vowed to keep those other areas clutter free !
Btw - Flo already has a favourite new observation post.
Last of the Tomado shelves. And a limited edition print I recently picked up at the Brussels flea market. Know what I like best about it ? With the olive matting it fits perfectly into a standard Ikea Ribba frame ! No need to splurge on custom framing.
That's my favourite kind of art - thrifty and cheap ! Just like the French modernist tapestry on the black wall. I think the two of them are a match made in heaven.
But this wouldn't be one of my posts if I didn't keep you updated on my (in)famous sitting area. Latest look, as of this morning.
It still needs some fiber art. I guess.
Habitat lamp shade really is a good match for it. That's why it's still in its plastic wrapping.
