quirky color corner

Two colorful shots found in the August 2011 issue of Elle Decoration (British) to brighten your Thursday. They’re from the houseboat(!) of Author Josie Curran. I love all the mixing of retro/vintage elements. The bookcase is especially fun. I’ve never been the biggest fan of the whole color-coordinated-book-display thing- but I feel like it works well here because the books are separated into little clusters (as opposed to just a line in rainbow formation) with little objects in between to act as visual breathing room.  I also love how the books are kind of haphazardly thrown and stacked into the cubbys. Keeps it a little more casual and less contrived. Check out more in the August 2011 Elle Decoration. (photos by Alun Callendar)
