A Shelf Story

I have this very large wall behind my couch. I have been experimenting with hanging mirrors, hanging pictures, hanging everything BUT something that worked. I needed something large, but not too large, something that used the space, but didn't overwhelm it and something that made it feel like home. Then I came across pictures of rooms that looked like this:



and this:


And then one day at Ikea I found 2 perfect shelves and a very sweet boy came and helped me hang them not once, but twice! (I'm very particular about how I like things)... and then Viola!



PERFECTION!

WHY is no one else inquiring about the sweet boy?? Forgive me, but, is there something here to know? Or just be satisfied with sweet boy and be quiet?
