Accessorizing....

This past weekend I went out & purchased a few items for the floating IKEA cabinets I posted about here.  


I read ALL of your comments & suggestions on what I should place on the shelving & believe me, there were lots of good ones, so thank you!!!! Many of you has suggested adding lamps - but it isn't wide enough for a decent sized lampshade...& I didn't want to get mini-lamps, so I scratched that idea. Here's what I added...

I wanted to keep it relatively simple....but I think I may pile a couple more books on each side for more height....




The flowers are silk flowers I purchased awhile ago, don't recall where (sorry) but you can find them online I'm sure! They feel really nice & I love how they look in person! The white vase the flowers are in is from West Elm.






The little white vase pictured above is from ZGallerie. It's so cute & lightweight, can easily be moved around the house.

This polished brass vessel (below) holds a black candle from D.L. & Co. that is one of my favorites! Isn't the skull super cool?? The scent of the candle is made up of opium poppy, a blend Madagascar vanilla, green pepper, pink lotus, and perilla absolute. It is just amazing! Available at Barneys New York.




I've always wanted a piece of driftwood & instead of hunting for it myself in some town or buying it on Ebay, I decided to buy the one I saw at ZGallerie. It was perfect & super affordable at only $25!






All the books I have on a flat display are:





World Art






So, what do you think so far?

  5. Looks beautiful - love those white vases. I have quite the collection of textured white vases myself! Something narrow like that is such a tricky thing to arrange but I love what you have so far :)

  7. This looks fabulous Jen - lots of well-chosen things but not too forced which I believe is always a challenge when needing to fill a whole new space. Also loving your new Coco & Hearts pieces!

  8. Looks very "you" and I love that. Personal design is the way to go - not focusing on what is trendy or adhering to random rules. So glad you mentioned about the flowers, I have been ogling them. Didn't know silk flowers could look so good!

  9. It looks beautiful! Love the driftwood, and I'm always using silk flowers too! Mostly because I have a tendency to kill real plants :/

  11. This is my favorite Ikea hack I've ever seen, and I love how you have decorated it. The flowers are perfect and I even think the driftwood looks great, and I hate driftwood as decor! You're awesome, Made By Girl!

  15. Looks fantastic so far :) The flowers make the space feel so much more vibrant.
    I was going to ask where those book ends came from too, but I was beaten to it! They're gorgeous!

  16. Cuuute accessories! This is something I have always struggled with. Especially getting the perfect thing and making it look perfectly imperfect! :) These are really cute examples. I especially like the use of the natural elements-- flowers and driftwood. Also scull vessel is very cool!!

  19. You PAID for driftwood?
    Let me know when you want another piece. I'll go to the beach and get you a nice chunk! I could use the extra cash!

  35. I love it, but then I wish there was something tall and soaring to anchor the space in the left corner. But that is just my opinion....

    And oh, I am coming to Vegas,can I just follow behind you for a day to absorb some of your awesomeness? :)

  37. Totally gorgeous amazing! I love the brass knobs! Great job!

  38. Glad I'm not alone in the love-of-driftwood department. I have a huge West Elm lidded jar that displays several pieces, as well as tumbled glass I picked off the beach in Italy. I love the whole look, even though most people don't understand it! I'm also dying for your cabinet and hardware by the way. DYING I say!

  39. Oh Jen!!! So many people get stuff like this wrong, but you have NAILED it! The knobs are SO amazing, and wow! I just can't ge over what it does to the space. Your home is looking like it's ready for Elle Decor to come knocking! Hope your back is feeling better, if only slightly. Mr Tonic fell down some steps last weekend (ambulance called and everything!), but he is also slowly on the (back) mend. PS LOOOVE that skull candle. How great is that range!!
    Anyway, lotsa love,
