They had to be narrow, the room is not that big, vertical storage would be the perfect plan, like in this next pic.
I also like the idea of having doors on the lower part of the shelves, that would hide those piles of plain copied papers and magazine cut-offs my husband loves to keep on the floor by the side of his night table. Ughhh, I simply dislike that!
Books and decorative items would go up on the top shelves and the doors would hide those not so pretty things.
But there is still one more thing I want to incorporate: a FIREPLACE. Just like in this next picture.
That's a problem, I know! It is hard and expensive to bring a real fireplace into my design. I'm settling on creating the look of a fireplace using one of those electric "fireplace" heaters. Have you used one of those? Any recommendations?
We don't want a t.v. in our room, the top part would be decorated as a regular mantel. Wow, I love the color combination on this one.
This following picture was part of my white bedroom inspiration because it has all the elements I want, two narrow bookcases on each side of a fireplace.
Again, the fireplace has to be different, but believe me, any electric fireplace would look better than what the Mr. brings to the middle of the room on really cold winter days:
I'm already working on this and it's a challenge! :)
The building of the bookcases is already on. Click HERE to see its progress.
