Needing, Wanting, Loving: Art Hung on Bookshelves

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?!  I got a lot of work done and got to enjoy a few dinners out, so all in all mine was a success.  I've expressed my love for built-in bookshelves many, many times.  They add architectural interest, storage, and provide a great space to display accessories.  Recently in one of my classes, we had to re-design an International Style home.  I was horrified when some students chose to take out the beautiful built-ins that lined the hallways.  Never, could I ever!  My latest obsession is seeing art hung on the actual shelves.  It adds dimension and is such a fun, unique way:

 Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the kind words and compliments on last week's townhome reveal.  I was so honored to also see it featured on Apartment Therapy.  You can see the post here.

Have a great week, my loves!


  1. Glad you're back! Is is bad that I am so addicted to reading your blog daily that I was actually worried about you when you didn't post for a couple days?! Ha! :)


  2. I love a good bookshelf too! How could people rip them out?! The art is a nice touch, I wish I had that many books to fill one!

  3. This is one of my favorite unexpected from the typical bookshelf styling!! Loving all your inspiration pictures!

  4. Absolutely adore this idea! So fab & chic!

  5. I haven't seen this idea before! To be honest, I am not sure if I 100% like it, but I find it very interesting and can definitely see how it would look awesome in some homes! :)

    I'm glad you're back!
