Decorating Help

As soon as the boxes get unpacked the next thing on my mind is decorating. I never really got around to decorating the condo, I am not really sure why, probably because we had no storage for any seasonal items, and because we never expected to be there for more than 5 or 6 years. Now, I really want to decorate our home, and give it some Kelly flair. I am usually very classic in terms of my taste, with some modern accents.

My first area of attack is what I like to call B’s “book nook”

This is the master bedroom, but we have the same window indent in B’s room. My original plan is to (in the spring) pain the indented walls as an accent wall, something calming, maybe a warm blue or cream. I also used pinterest and found this awesome idea to use Ikea Spice Racks as book shelves.

Similiar to this blog post.

I also would use them in our bathroom, similiar to this post.

But I am not sure what else to do. I was contemplating putting a husband chair

We have this in navy blue.

However, that is as far as I’ve gotten. What would you suggest? Anything you love or hate?

  1. I love the idea of using Ikea spice racks as bookshelves! Genius! I think it would be great to do an accent wall in the nook and add a bit of depth and color. For B's room, you could do floor pillow or something to make it a very cozy corner – a special place for him in his room?

  2. Ooooooh that wall is incredible!!! I'm super jealous! I would probably do a bench there, with some colorful pillows and whispy white curtains. I'm not a huge fan of those spice racks as bookshelves–I think it looks random and unkempt. I do like the racks in the bathroom though!!

    If you do the bench, it could double as storage space, or you could even do a built-in bookshelf there, kinda like this:

    Have you been to at all? I LOVE that site for decor inspiration!

    Good luck! Can't wait to see what you come up with. :) It's a gorgeous space!!

  3. I never would have thought of those spice racks in the bathroom! That is genius – I actually might have to do that in our rental if they aren't bad to put in. We have no bathroom storage!!

    I love them for a book nook too – I would have loved that as a kid.
