Although my apartment isn't done, I love sharing sneak peeks with you each week! This week it's all about my new bookcase from the incredible online resource, 55 Downing Street. I think I've mentioned a time or two that I'm completely taken with styling bookshelves. I may or may not have already redone this very bookshelf a few times. I just can't help it!
I knew I needed something tall to go in this space, as the ceilings are vaulted, so I hung the curtains about a foot and half above the top of the window molding to draw the eye up even more. The bookshelf perfectly fills the space and although it's not 100% styled yet (the blank canvas on the bottom shelf…I need to find time to paint that!) Since I was going for an eclectic, feminine feel with touches of shabby chic, I think the weathered finish is right on! Take a look at the new bookshelf:
Not sure what I want to do with that round mirror leaning behind the stack of books. I might actually hang it above the stack of books. Thoughts?!

What do you think of the bookshelf? I'm sort of obsessed. I can't wait to show it to you, alongside all the other pieces in the room. Soon, friends, soon!! 55 Downing Street is apart of Lamps Plus, and I am SO impressed by their extensive pieces of furniture, decor and more. If you're looking for new things for your home, give them a look as they have something for every price point!
I hope you're having a great week! I'm busy getting the FINAL details ready for Friday's Bloom Workshop. I can't wait to meet all the gal's smiling faces.
