I always look at fabulous home decor pictures, and capture the perfect looks for my own home. I realized I'm highly indecisive when it comes to decorating. I guess I have commitment issues. =)

My husband built me beautiful magazine storage for our home in Marrakech - it holds 100s of back issues!

Mmmmm, that metal and wood shelf is gorgeous. I'm thrilled about this industrial/restoration trend- it's a beautiful way to incorporate a masculine look into decor. Trust me, my boyfriend is thrilled too!

After the bottom fell out of the basket where I was keeping my magazines I realized that I need to come up with some more permanent storage method. I've always loved the look of pretty leather or fabric covered magazine holders neatly lined up on a shelf.

That first set of shelving is right up my alley! I'm such a book shelf snob--I'm so picky that I actually don't have any in my house right now because I can't find any that I like within my budget. I'm tired of all those crappy Ikea shelves, so I'd rather go without!

Now if I could get my hands on a set like in that pic, I'd be golden!

The other ones I have my eyes on are these--they have a set in a vintage shop near my house, and every time I walk by I press my nose to the shop windows like a kid outside a candystore: http://tinyurl.com/yg7ar8f

This is a great idea, i'd probably use it as an area to show off my favorite magazines, as I have boxes and boxes of them stored in my spare bedroom.

Wow, those powder blue, specially made floating shelves are FAB-U-LOUS! They really look cool. I'm a lover of having things looking organised and geometric, so their layout is very pleasing to my eye!

Thanks so much for linking up to my bookcase linky with this terrific post and making me look less dorky! Gorgeous blog too!
