There is so much goodness here: 1) Highly functional bookshelves framing an entry way. 2) Festoon lights above the entry way add a decorative element between the top of the door way and the bottom of the shelves. 3) Perfectly hanged mismatched and odd-sized frames.
***** background color for shelves - I might have to break my rules and give this a 6 asterisks. I've done it on all my bookshelves and I really like it. I did not use paint this dark- which looks good if you have a lot of white stuff and I didn't. I used a light aqua, and on one I used old maps. That's a great one. Don't forget about painting the insides of your closets a separate color as well. It's an instant grin.
