Ever since I got my brass Milo Baughman etagere, I've been obsessed with stalking brass bookcases. Not that I hadn't done that before, it's just that this time around I've gotten fanatic about them. Then I found what I think may be my favorite mix. Olivia Chantecaille, creative director of her family cosmetics line, did a home tour for One Kings Lane & I fell madly for her style.
The brass etagere is full of books, boxes, family photos, unique objects with interesting shapes and surrounded by art. I love the way art is hung behind the etagere to accentuate the small vignettes. In fact, I pretty much love everything about this entire room including all of the chairs and the very stylish coffee table. Is that a brass planter I see? Gotta have one of those for my coffee table immediately.
Books play such an important role in the style of all of this. I have a ridiculous amount of books, so this is right up my alley. Truth be told, I need more books. Today, I may have to head over to the local Half Price Book store and see what I can get my hands on. I love oversized books with gorgeous photos, especially vintage books. There is something so very cool about the way they used to make books. Before the internet, they were the expression of information and visuals. I especially love the travel ones.
Don't you just think this space is gorgeous?
