skinny wall shelves and decorating style identity crisis
Oh I'm a nasty poor excuse of a decorating blogger. Lately I post "other" people's photos. I've decided I'm going to keep my dining room makeover under wraps and unveil it's final state when she's all done.
In the meantime, I'll keep posting photos that inspire me or give me ideas for what the heck to do with my poor unadorned walls and spaces.
My latest pre-occupation is with skinny shelves, as in those with a shallow depth in regards to it's profile. Something to place various objects for display. The more eclectic the better. I get the feeling I'm a wannabe eclectic-retro-modern-design kinda girl, but one has to work with one's current possessions and work with what one has (or has access to and can afford).
I don't live in a big-city-converted-warehouse-loft and so I must work with my little bungalow rather than against it. It's funny, sometimes I wish I lived in an old adorable farmhouse, other times I wished I lived where you could fall asleep to the sound of passing traffic and people. Twelve foot high ceilings, conduit, and walls of high windows. And brick. A gallery wall on brick.
I blame it on the movies.
