I can appreciate your defense -- It is important that people stick to their guns when they find a piece they like regardless of anyone's opinion. The new photos show it in a new light - I appreciate the texture.

TallulahBelle: It took me a little while to place the link but Valerie Madill was the person who accomplished it and the title of her project is "looking at libraries: defining space through content" found here:

Her covers are indeed custom made but I think if someone was ambitious enough they could accomplish something similar. I was pretty impressed with the cataloging system though - would make bibliographies a breeze!

I have seen a post in the past where someone organized their bookshelf by color but instead of using the actual spine, they used a color coded paper wrap-around. Each color corresponded to each subject and the bibliographical info was written on the spine. I really loved that idea and I could fathom that much more. At least I could find the appropriate subject!

I think the black & white patterned ottoman might be a great choice for my bedroom but I would want to check out the quality first. I try to keep my bed linens solid with my patten coming in through pillows and artwork so it might work well in my small space.

I also like the photo montage frame in the bottom left with rounded corners. I would love to pick out some of my photos and create a gradient of color going across it.

Having a gift certificate always helps :P And I agree with the above poster. All department stores have great finds but in moderation or else your space ends up too cookiecutter.

I have to agree with the above - if the purple was paired with a different color wall, it would look too over the top. The sandy walls really make this look.
