A Library in the Dining Room

Hello friends! It has been awhile. I took the summer off to really focus on getting settled into my apartment and enjoying the warm weather, as well as take a much needed rest after graduating from the Bachelor of Interior Design degree in only 33 months. Today, I'm giving a little sneak peak of my dining area which is going to double as a library with the help of a really lovely IKEA billy bookcase hack (more to come on that one I get the shelves secured to my old plaster walls). 


For as long as I can remember, I've wanted a library. Before my Design Degree, I graduated with a degree in English Literature, so I guess you can say that books are my first love. But being in a small apartment in the city means having to get creative with space.

I was inspired by this library designed by Nate Berkus:

Combining the dining room with the library is such a natural choice, as the table easily doubles a surface for reading, studying, and note taking. Let's just say the grass cloth got me thinking as well!
I can't wait to show you the rest! Stay tuned for more from my apartment decorating.

I've missed you my friends!

Interior designing can be really fun especially when its your first time doing it. It can be a trial and error process at times but when you get the hang of it it will come naturally
