BOOKSHELVES

No home has life without BOOKS and no decoration is complete without a stylish BOOKSHELF.

There are many different shelving systems to consider when it comes to your books and their homes.

Today,I want to share some of my favorite wall mounted book shelving systems and the different materials used to build them.

WOOD

Wood is the main element for a majority of bookshelves, because, it can easily be sturdy enough with the right thickness of planks and application methods.

***Plus, books and wood are always family***

METAL
Metal is also an elegant material of preference.Metal can easily be folded and painted for different design options.


Lately,many bookshelves are made out
of metals of varying thickness. CNC cutting methods are sometimes used to create stylish patterns on the shlef or the side divisions.

GLASS

Glass is sometimes used as shelves or partitions. Rarely,a bookshelving system is designed  only with glass as the main material,because the shelves need to be made out of expensive thick glass to hold heavy weight of the books.

AND, of course, all of these basic materials can easily be combined to design a wall mounted BOOKCASE.
For instance,a shelving system can be made out of wood with metal or glass partitions or vice versa.
Either way,a BOOKSELF made of different materials will always be as interesting as a solid wood bookshelf as long as all details are carefully crafted.

WALL PANELLING

Today, I want to share one of my favourite architectural details:

***WALL PANELLING and MOLDINGS***


Wallpapers and decorative paint are always common methods used by many to create interesting walls. However, I almost always prefer to use wall panelling if there is enough room and budget to give that extra something special...

First of all,it brings a whole new personality to a wall.And the freedom of design lets me customise it however I want . Divisions , colours and details can all be personalised. That is why, in the end it is a wall with a CHARACTER!!!

One can go ahead and panel all the walls of a room or make an accent wall by moulding only one.For instance, let's say you want  a statement wall, I suggest dressing a big dining wall, an entry wall or a bedroom headboard wall.

Corridors, long entryways and powder rooms usually have less windows,therefore the abundance of empty wall spaces lets panelling add depth and interest.An ordinary hallway or a foyer can easily turn into a space of attraction if dressed with unique wall panels.

Panelling is a great way to express your own style. You can choose to keep it simple and have it painted with light colours or you can easily spoil your walls by using gold accents and Renaissance style details.

---Bold and dark colours with defined mouldings are also a great way to accent.---

Although there are classic ratios for subdivisions , one can easily set the tone by altering the common use.The bigger top piece stacked on top of a shorter piece creates the illusion of a higher ceiling, so it is quite often the preferred kind. Yet, even spaced linear or square divisions can easily make your wall appear wider and longer as well.

By the way, don't ever panic about losing wall space for artwork, mirrors or even wallpapers. All is possible no matter how dressed your wall is. A major piece of art or even a gallery wall can still be a point of attraction, or a wall covering can easily multiply the feeling of warmth.

SO, Don't Hesitate and feel what you really want in order to reflect yourself on your walls...
