The Trouble with Bookshelves

The trouble with bookshelves is that I have a million books and just filling bookshelves with books isn't stylish.  Last weekend I took a good hard look at my bookshelves, flipped through a few decorating books and magazines I love, and then edited.  The result: a better display of a few of my books, pictures and family antiques.  The glass pieces and books on each shelf create a common feeling which links the shelves together.

Colorful crafting and cook books accompany my grandmother's antique tea cup and saucer.

What would a bookshelf be without a terrarium?

  1. This is great, Cady! This is one of my biggest decorating challenges. I have a ton of "cubbies" in my new house. I would love, love, love if you could help me with them.

    BTW, I didnt' mean to ignore your tweet to me. I just haven't figured out how it works yet. If I reply to you, does it go just to you or does it post to everyone?


  2. I'd love to help! Especially because I can't wait to see your new house :)

    Get back on twitter! I really enjoy it. When you look at the tweet I sent, or really any of mine, there is a place under the tweet where you can choose to make the tweet a favorite, retweet it to others, or reply. Or you can just type @CMSDesignCo and start writing. Now that you and Oli have a new house, you should look around on twitter for design ideas. There's lots of stuff on there.

    Miss you girl!
