Progress

Yesterday, during naptime, we emptied all the boxes containing "livros," and dived into a much-needed library-scaping session.
 Our previous home had a study adequate enough to house our book collection, but the rooms in our apartment here in Rio will need to do more multi-tasking.  So, I was more conscious of how we'd arrange the shelves - balancing books (obvs) with art and tchotchkes.  Knick-knacks offer a fine line, you know.  I hope I didn't cross it.

 I have a little project in mind to jazz up the bookshelves, but for the time being...
One 'scape:  Done!

Looks great. I am in the process of trying to style my new Parsons towers. Did you use bookends on the rows of books? I'm having a hard time figuring out how to keep things upright. Probably a dumb question, but thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks!

I love your use of vibrant colors, mixed with more earthy materials like the antlers and statue. Very pretty!
