As someone suggested above, I would hang mirrors or art from the shelves like this:

A longer mirror would take up a lot of space visually and you could move the items you currently have to the sections of the bookcase that are visible. Craigslist and Target are a great source for reasonably priced mirrors and you could reuse the mirrors in your next home.

I have read a couple of the renovation diaries (although I don't necessary read every single entry). I believe one of the individuals that completed a diary responded to a comment and implied that all of the work was completed before the diary was posted, i.e., the diary was not posted in real-time.

Does anyone know if that is the case? I think it would be helpful to know, so that commenters didn't waste their time making suggestions for a project that it is already complete. Although upon second thought, perhaps the comments could be helpful to someone else considering a similar project.

Beautiful home, but even more beautiful story of being courageous enough to do something that terrifies you.

Gorgeous home, and beautiful decor and design choices. I love the minimalist approach she takes, and the modern aesthetic she achieves without being cold or sterile. My design style is nearly the same and as I plan to completely redecorate my home, it's nice to see that you can achieve the modern look I love without it reading too masculine. Beautiful job!

I love that they extended the counter in the corner which allowed a space for a small TV and the cabinet for additional storage underneath. My mother loves having a small TV in her small kitchen. When I visit for the holidays, I watch/listen to the TV while washing the mountain of dishes (there's no dishwasher) and it makes it much less painful :)

Love your use of gray! As several have noted, it makes your space very serene. Lovely home.

Gorgeous home, and proof that minimalism and modern design doesn't have to equate to a cold/sterile environment.

I love the bones of your space, and I love your decor and color palette (I am prefer cool neutrals with pops of color). I also have the same design philosophy regarding decor in that I prefer to surround myself with items that are meaningful and make me smile. I think your home would be a great Small Cool contender next year once you add the rugs and any meaningful art and/or other decor.

There have been a lot of great suggestions so far. I would also google "bungalow" and look at the images (I'm not sure if your house is technically a bungalow, but the porch and columns are similar). I just took a look and there are a lot of ideas for how to handle the columns and landscaping. Good luck!
