I saw this image at Design Sponge yesterday, and ever since I've been obsessing over floor to ceiling bookcases coupled with rolling ladders.
Okay, I lie.
I was obsessing over them way before I saw this image, but the fact that Contractor Douglas is on his way over to patch over those horrific vents (as well as get started on my new fireplace design, demolishing that arch to the dining area, and punching a hole in the wall for a door) makes me realize that I need to commit to what I'm going to do with that big, blank canvas of a wall that he'll be leaving behind. And you all know how I am with commitment.
I need to come up with something brilliant, or at least passable, since it's A Very Important Wall -- the first thing you'll see when you enter our home. I've toggled between a collage of my favorite framed sketches or floor to ceiling bookcases. I'm also considering low bookcases with art sitting on them and hanging above them.
If I did floor to ceiling bookcases wouldn't a rolling ladder be superb?! There probably isn't enough room and even if there was I'd probably find a way to fly off of it and break my back, but still.
I should live a little.
