I recently completed one of those “dream” projects where you get to collaborate with easygoing, hip, and cool clients that shared similar design sensibilities. They also exuded qualities from which I garnered incredible knowledge. I learned so much from them… and, I hope, that I gave them something in return.
Bookshelves, one of my passions, was on high alert for this home. Bookshelves can become art of the three dimensional kind. I love to layer artifacts, art, pieces from world travels, and book collections themselves in this forum. I also like to use photographs, sculpture, and found seasonal objects. Leaves, flowers, candles, and organic finds can complete this picture.
I had several areas in this amazing Chicago home for my craft. Don’t you think that it looks as if we had been collecting for years? (Fooled you!) See how you can exhibit your favorite color, or books, or just a grouping of your favorite things? Start with one shelf at a time… you will be amazed at what you can create. Add a dash of holiday greenery or ornaments and you are set for the season!
