The floating nightstand

I'm really coveting the idea of having a cubic floating shelf serving as a nightstand by the bed. It feels so subtle and fresh and totally easy to style and play with. Since wall mounted shelves are supposed to be space savers, don't expect to have loads of surface to decorate but that ain't necessarily a bad thing. Wall lamps or pendants hanging on each bedside will eliminate the use of table lamps while the two shelves provide that extra bit of storage for reading material or other things you might need by your side at nights.

Eclectic minimalistic apartment in Paris. Design by Frederic Berthier, photo by Benoit Linero

I'm welcoming refined simplicity once again here in this blog and this gorgeous apartment designed by Frederic Berthier. While it holds the elegance and exquisite quality of a typical Parisian apartment, this one is deliberately deprived of spare decorations and lets the high quality materials and handmade furniture speak through their carefully designed details. Love the prominent linear accents, like the long marble bench, the dark blue curtain and the minimalistic fireplace that form a continuity and a connection between the areas of the house. Enjoy!

Will you try this styling tip on your bookcase?

Bookcase styling tip | Stadshem

What do you think of reversed books on bookcases? I still haven’t made up my mind on that. I admit it creates a coherent and clean result, a seamless background to a more minimalistic or scandinavian home design. Helps a lot when you possess books with an ugly spine or subject you’re not interested in reading again (I know I have loads of old uni books I’ll never ever read again but not feeling like parting ways with them). On the other hand, if you actually want to use/showcase your precious hardcovers, then it is completely unpractical (not to mention a kind of blasphemy) not to place them in their rightful manner. Of course, like all things, there is always the middle way solution, where you can style your books guided by how you actually use them to mix and match the shown/hidden spines. So how do you do it? How are the books placed on your bookcase?
