An update on the study in our new home (we’re getting there, almost!)
Our new(ish) home, which truly isn’t so new anymore, is slowly but surely coming along. It’s charming in all the right ways, and part of that adorable old home charm is that storage is…well…minimal. To be frank, it’s nearly nonexistent! So, while we do have a second room (which we didn’t have in the apartment we moved from), we also have already filled to the brim.
The study doubles as my office and book storage. Essentially, it’s all book storage. You may think I’m kidding, but alas, I am not. I have a lot of books. So many that they don’t even fit into the 4 IVAR cabinets I picked up from IKEA when we first moved in. And, don’t get me wrong! I’m in no way complaining. I love all my books and I love that we have this idyllic space for them!
So, I have little book stacks piled around the study. I always joked that I want to live surrounded by books, and here I am literally surrounded by books.
Bookish dreams do come true, I tell you.
So far, we haven’t done a ton to this space, visually. But, it is loaded up with furniture! My reading chair is in, our little café style wall shelf is up, the books are loaded up into cabinets, and I’m loving all of the pieces that I picked out for this space. The rug is dreamy, the desk is the perfect size, and the light is beyond gorgeous.
Whew! We’ve got a lot going on over here! Which rooms do you want to see more of?!
