Yesterday was a VERY good day. I had my office painted the most beautiful shade of bluish-gray (ICI Dulux- Souvenir color matched by my buddies at Sherwin Williams).  Doing this really made the space open up and feel clean even though right now everything is in shambles.  After clearing the room, I was so reluctant to bring all of my stuff back in here without a well thought out organization plan…but I had to anyway.  See the before here.

This is the Expedit Bookcase by Ikea (as if you didn’t know). Coveted internationally because of its price, classic design, and functionality I had to have one.  Some decorators/designers despise anything from Ikea, I suppose its because most of their wood furniture is not made of solid wood, but MDF (medium-density fiberboard).  Whatever the case I think it’s okay as long as your home doesn’t look like an Ikea catalog.  It’s all about styling your bookcase and displaying items that make you feel good. Check out these spaces where the Expedit is used and you be the judge…
