{two lovely things: on display}

two lovely things

. . . currently, favourite pairs of sequined heels and golden strappy summer sandals are displayed in a glass cabinet {much like this one}, but after happening upon martha stewart living decorating editor, rebecca robertson's, picture rails as shoe racks, now dreaming up entire dressing rooms with walls lined in beautiful shoes . . .


{p.s.} also adore the idea of using beveled mirrors and a floating shelf to create an entryway console


recent two lovely things:
* ruggedly refined
* books & blossoms
* gilded chalkboards & garden sheds
green & white
* open shelves & elegant black
* bar carts & blossoms

* books & bouquets
* a paris apartment & herm├Ęs
* secret gardens & on the terrace

from great adaptations, text by kelly tagore & photography by seth smoot, martha stewart living july 2011 digital version for the ipad2, screen captures by this is glamorous}

Ah, so lovely! I really like the picture rail idea - sometimes they seem like a one-use thing....

bronwyn -- isn't a wonderful idea? & yes, always thought the same about picture rails -- that they weren't very versatile -- but as it turns out, they most definitely are; also, besides holding pictures, thought they might work for plates in the kitchen or dining room, or even for a perfume display in the bedroom or dressing room . . .

I love the idea of making your closet so comfortably chic that you want to just live there.

Now that is a novel idea! I have mine on standard shoe shelves...maybe I need to change.

I too have thoughts of grandeur to have a room with all four walls deliciously decorated with hanging shoes. A girls delight!

Hope your week has been a good one?

ADORE both of these. I happened upon that first image and have been smitten every since! I wish I had a giant closet to hang my shoes as art that way :) Hugs to you Roseline,

Soo thankful that I saw this picture. I was so torn over where to put all of my new shoes and this just saved me tons of money because my apartment has tons of molding so now i have a pretty shoe border!
