    Hi Jackie, did you think about floating shelves? I kind of imagine well a very comfy club chair in front of your bed (to enjoy reading with good light!) and floating shelves above it – it would avoid for the space to feel too cramped or crowded. I’m looking forward to seeing the “after” pictures 🙂

    I like the idea of a larger bookshelf! In my last place, I had a Hemnes and loved it; donated it to a friend before moving across the country. I think it would work beautifully in your space – and agree, it would free up some of the Expedit. I like the idea of a reading chair too, but you will have the best sense of space and how you use the area.

    Since you built the inspiration board, what about leaving a shelf or two out of the set up, and having a larger space for the inspiration board to set into? Perhaps layered with some art? I had a vintage piece of heirloom glassware that needed more height, so I left one of the shelves out when I assembled the bookcase. It varied the interest for me a bit. For that large section, I bought a piece of foam board and had a frame shop dry-mount some wrapping paper to it, and then popped it into the space. I think the project cost $20.

    I’m excited to see what you come up with.

    Love it! You have such a great eye!

    I’ve always liked a drop front desk like you have. Any details on it? Oh, and shelves of any kind in a small place are always a smart move. They can be changed constantly to help assuage that driving need for rearranging or simple facelift.

    I knew great minds think alike. I have an inspiration board as well. Similar color schemes to yours as a matter of fact. You just can never go wrong with PINK!

    Also, I really like the Hemnes bookshelf. It looks more classy than the first as it has more detail. Also, deeper shelves will be more pratical.

    Gorgeous as always, Jackie! LOVE the inspiration board! May I ask where the adorable little illustrated map of NYC came from? It’s too cute!

    Thanks! Have a great weekend!

    I always did the same thing (moving around furniture) and my parents eventually made me wait until the weekend so that my room wouldn’t be a mess during the school week, haha. Love the inspo board and can’t wait to see the final apt layout with the bookshelf!

    I’m always in awe of how much you’re able to fit into a small space. I’m ashamed to say my 1 bedroom is a generous 800 square feet and nowhere near as efficient as your apartment. 🙂
