A bookcase and a ship

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

We finally got to make the bookshelf we talked about in the Paradissi residence for ages. 
There was a need to cut the main room into two parts; the living room and the dining room/workspace and we decided that the best way to do so was to use a divider that it will be practical and won't reduce the light flow in the room. So it was a bookcase that would do the trick. We wanted it to be light and airy so that it won't clutter the space, easy to make and on a budget (tough times, that is). I'm proud to admit that we hit 3 on 3! It's nothing much, but it sure does wonders to the place. 
And that crafted ship by B. is now in its deserving position, right on the top and most visible shelf ;)

Images by me.

  1. Beautiful and so simple with the timber, white sails of the ship and your indoor plants. Perfect! F x

  2. Hi Eleni! I follow you up every day! what color are the walls in your living room? a light grey? :)

    1. Γεια σου Ειρήνη,
      το χρώμα ήταν μια μίξη που βγάλαμε επι τόπου με τον μπογιατζή. Είναι ένα καφεγκρι, κάπου ενδιάμεσα στου κωδικούς BC387 και B702D της ΒΙΒΕΧΡΩΜ με λίγο περισσότερο γκρι μέσα.
      Ελπίζω να σε βοήθησα!
