I would love to see the rest of this room. I believe it is designed by the design team duo Good Bones, Great Pieces. Below is a picture of my bookcase that I would like to use to flank our living room window (picture from my old home).
The problem is I have only one which I bought years ago for a steal from Lillian and August. I would like to find its twin so I can create symmetry next to the window. I don't know what the likelihood is of finding it's twin?? I need to look into it.
But, for now, I am thinking about this look. This would give us the necessary storage and shelf space we currently lack. But, I'm a bit on the fence if I really like this look.
The two images above probably illustrate best how narrow our living room is and I wonder if the bookcases make the room seem cramped?
This room seems wider, more spacious and the bookcases don't feel like they are dominating the room. I would have to play around with the bookcase styling as I'm sure that can make a big difference too. Decisions, decisions. Who knows, I might not even find it's twin and will need to do something like this instead.
While not exactly symmetrical, the desk and large yellow piece of artwork help balances the secretary on the opposite wall. Design at it's best - working with what you have and fooling the eye to make you believe that everything works seamlessly.
