I think I have found the best arrangement for the Living Room. I'm not over the moon about it, but it is the only one that makes sense. I did have a bit of an epiphany that might just balance out the room. What about two bookcases on either side of the doorway to the dining room? It might balance all the black abyss Big Bertha has to offer.
What do you think?
I thought that I need something with decorative cutout sides to keep it a little airier than solid black. And it would give a little more interest for the eye. I found the perfect bookcases at Costco, but I went today to get a second look and they were all gone. Then I found these online:
A mere $649 from Ballard Designs, I did think for a minute how I was going to talk Ryan into letting me spend $1300 on bookcases for a room we rarely sit in - but then I came to my senses.
A little better, $250 from CSN - but does it have enough finesse?
Hmmm - a bit more whimsical? $240 from CSN, and free shipping! I think I like the open back look.
Any opinions? No bookcases? Any favorites here?
