Shelf Love

With winter comes a desire to nest, chill, relax, read, and basically slow down in general.  Slowing down isn't really in my vocabulary and honestly most days I have no idea how to.  I prefer things that way- hectic, busy, fun, chock full of events where memories can be made.  So, it's no surprise I sometimes dread this time of year.  Does anyone really enjoy the sun setting at 4:30 pm (p.s.- I love this meme).  However, I've done enough "inner work" this year (said with a smirk) to know resistance of any kind is futile- it's much more charming to let things come, adapt, and flow with them.  So, I'm doing all things within my power to bring out my inner *chill* goddess and slowwww down.  First up is adding to my reading list.  I do love the feeling of being enthralled by a story I simply cannot put down, so I highly recommend this book and this book (I recently finished both).  I want to read this next. If you have any good recommendations, please let me know.  In the meantime, I thought sharing some gorgeous bookshelves felt very much in the spirit of coziness.  Whether it's a small built-in that feels like an afterthought, a perfectly proportioned centerpiece of a room, or simply a free-standing piece filled to the brim, I rarely see a shelf I couldn't love:

Something about artist Wayne Pete's shelves filled haphazardly feels so charming to me.  Especially with barely any space left for the AC unit, this is a quintessential Brooklyn creative's studio.

I also want to pay homage to the book stack- perhaps not as practical as displaying books on a shelf, it still is a fun way to decorate a room and I myself have several stacks of books in my own apartment:

Happy Wintering,
