As you are all well aware, I am working furiously to get some spaces done in my own home. I am actually rounding the corner on the completion of two spaces; the living room and bedroom. Let's talk about the living room, shall we? So the space is rectangular and has a mantle/fireplace at the front of the room. You know what that means, peeps? Bare wall flanking on both sides of the mantle. I cannot deal. My first thought was to get massive furniture pieces for both sides to serve as built-ins. Then I decided that was going to be too expensive and also would not achieve the look I was going for. Scratch that. So now I am building it in. Just look at all of these amazing spaces that are the inspiration for my space.
