So excited for part 2 of my bedroom reveal today! ICYMI, last week I revealed my little office area. This week, I’m chatting about my reading nook area!
Before I redid my bedroom, I had a clunky, black IKEA bookcase. And zero bookcase styling. It was pretty tragic looking, to be perfectly honest. I was browsing other bookcases and I had intentions to upgrade from my IKEA shelves, but my interior designer Raquel from The Petite Decor suggested doing this awesome DIY IKEA Bookcase Hack since I wasn’t finding shelves in my budget. This IKEA bookcase hack was pretty easy for me to do by myself, and I would highly suggest it to anyone who’s decorating on a budget!
I’m also a big fan of the way Raquel styled my shelves. I told her that while I wanted a place to store my books and magazines, I wanted to give it a bit of fashion girl flare. I’m also somewhat limited on handbag storage, so I placed some of my favorite bags up at the very top. Who says purses can’t be decor?
What really finished off my office area were these prints from Minted. I opted for a fun gold foil print and a large paint brush print that went above my (very fun!) pink chair. I love shopping for prints at Minted because you can choose art thats framed or unframed, it ships super quickly and you have a ton of smaller artists to shop from. I can’t wait to update my living room walls with even more Minted pieces!
Stay tuned for next week, I’ll be revealing my bed area!
