this is well arrange, but just too quiet for me. If the inside backs were painted a Chinese red, all of the beigey objects would just pop! They would assume an importance they don't have now. Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray
When you have builtins done, think outside the box a little. The stepped center bookcase breaks up what could be a long boring line. Arches tops also help. Make sure your shelves are adjustable. And painting the inside backs an accent color really helps too.
Thomas O'Brien and Veranda magazine. I love that the bookcases are individual pieces with air and space between them. The special touches like the nailhead trim on the case pieces, the shapely legs on the ottomans and the soft rosettes on the carpet. Shapes live easily with each other and proportion is perfect!
