A little trend has been catching my eye recently among images on Pinterest and Instagram. A single shelf displaying little curations of artwork and meaningful decorative objects resting above the headboard. It's such a wonderful little addition of interest to a minimal or neutral bedrooms in the town or country. It's also a terrific way to keep those little beside necessities, such as alarm clocks and books, nearby when there's little room for side tables. I should perhaps add a somewhat obvious caution that this is best avoided by those living in earthquake zones.

Why, hello there. It feels like ages since I last wrote a blog post, forty-one days to be exact. If you're reading these one, thanks for sticking around. I don't quite know where my motivation for blogging went this summer but it sure did take an extended vacation I was not anticipating. So here I am, hitting reboot.

Lately it seems that every time I turn around my neat little stack of magazines and catalogs has grown exponentially into a messy mass ready to take over my coffee table. Does anyone else have this problem? Theoretically, I like the idea of disguising this plethora of glossies within my living room decor like these images suggest. Stack them in a basket near a lonely chair. Mask that ugly radiator under a window. Create a piece of art next to a fireplace. But would my OCD allow me to have such decor? Probably not. How do you tackle printed publications?
