You too, are you always looking for cool new ideas to decorate your home?
When you don’t have a great deal of imagination to invent ways to decorate your home yourself, you go and find inspiration in stores, magazines, other people’s homes, TV shows, Pinterest, interior design blogs (of course), etc.
My personal research and findings are already often to be found on this blog. But despite this fact, I decided to create a special category and, if possible, dedicate even more publications to the subject. Of course, the goal will be to inspire you with a maximum of ideas but I admit, what joy to try to fins more, again and again.
So today I present you with examples of an idea that I have already put forward several times on the blog’s Facebook page, the effect of close-to-the-ground shelves!
It’s the New Year and I haven’t published on this blog for over a month. I think sometimes you just get the need to disconnect a little, even without doing it consciously.
I have had a great Christmas holiday, I sound in the New Year quietly and I mostly enjoyed some real family time.
I’m not a big fan of NewYear’s resolutions, or maybe yes but not necessarily at the beginning of a new year. Same thing for the blog, I don’t see why we should have to wait for the start of a new calendar year to want to improve things.
However, as you might have guessed, I am trying to make regular small improvements to the blog. And overwhelming you with more ideas for interior decorating, will be one of them!
Until now I put ideas that inspire me in the category conseils et idées (or decorating stuff), but as of now there’s a new category for specific decorating ideas with photo examples: ideas to steal.
What’s the point of putting a shelf close to the ground like that?
It wouldn’t be surprising of certain people would watch them, with a very critical look, to go on making a joke about how it must be a mistake of the handyman, right?
But there you have it, I think it’s a great idea!
Firstly, a shelf installed so low leaves plenty of space on the wall to put something else. And if not, it makes for quite a minimalist way, or at least tidy, to expose your favorite objects on a shelf.
You too, you might also try to find original ways of decorating and with a close-to-the-ground shelf you actually get something you don’t see a lot, do you? The fact that the shelf doesn’t touch the floor does creates a sens of tidy and balance and on the practical side, if you don’t put it too low you can even vacuum under it real easily.
I hope these examples will inspire you too. All you need now is to find a wall that lends itself to a close-to-the-ground shelf in your home. I say this becauseinmy own home, I’m finding this really difficult which frustrates me somewhat. But if I do succeed in finding a spot I’ll let you know!
If you like shelves and originality, the article on a hanging shelf to put lots of plant could inspire you also.
