Montage: 44 Painted Built-In Bookshelves (Blue, Green, Black, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple)

I love the richness of the painted bookcases in these rooms. The tones are much deeper than I would dare to go in my own home. Most of the time. A couple of years ago, inspired by such shelving, I had my husband paint the built-in bookcases in our family room a deep purple. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great either. We’ve since gone back to white, with taupey greige walls, to complements the neutral re-do of our family room. But still, it doesn’t stop me from admiring the work of designers accomplished enough to pull off the look of richly painted bookcases. I particularly like Katie Ridder’s rooms with painted bookcases; she does it with great panache, in monochromatic and highly contrasty spaces. As does Miles Redd. Which colors would you experiment with for built-in bookshelves  in your own study?

On Trend: 35 Arrays of Arrows and Targets

I’ve been collecting images of arrows and targets for a while; I think I began to notice the trend in the fall. I thought it was a natural outgrowth of the trend of using feathers in decor, but I actually think it is part of The Hunger Games hoopla. In any case, I did a a piece on the arrow trend for The Inside Source earlier this year, and profiled blogger Amanda Hanley, in the Boston Globe Magazine. Put off by the high prices of vintage arrows, Hanley makes and sells arrows through her webshop Quivver. I, along with everyone else, saw The Hunger Games over the weekend, and as such felt inspired to post the roundup. UPDATE: I can’t believe I forgot about my own display of targets… They’re by Tracy Melton, and they’re hanging in our house on the Cape. It’s the first photo on the 23 Wall Installations post.
