Questions1
Was this one of the houses that they used in Portlandia?
The book stand and the stair
Love the hardwood floors. Also interesting use of staircase
cool idea but movies instead of books
around the main bookcase — which Portlandia fans might remember the durian using to contact its home planet. During filming, Papazian got to walk through the house to see how they'd set it up. "It was quite bizarre," he says. "Books arranged by color, strange devices and knickknacks decorating the shelves
rid of them all. Going forward, any books he buys will be digital, again with the exception of art books.Now before you begin the frantic, "You'll have to pull my books from my cold, dead hands" comments, just know I'm with you. Books are the only things I still actively acquire, but I get rid of them

These built-in bookcases help provide much needed storage in a small home while helping to bounce light into the room from the windows. At night the books are illuminated by the monopoint track fixtures. Renovation/Addition. Rob Karosis Photography

closet in there where I'd like to see this done. I just don't know where to start. Neither my husband nor myself are very "handy-man-ish" and we can use all the guidance we can get. I think I can get the help to actually putting in the shelves, but how and where would I get the red cushion and are those
bar and was wondering what to do with the space. I'm going to show my contractor and go for it. The kids will love to sit with their laptop or read a book. It will create some interest in the room too. Thank you!!!
What are the dimensions of the closet? I fell in love with this idea!! I have closet in my second bedroom that does not get used except miscellaneous storage. But looking at your closet and looking at mine, I think mine is too small to do something like this.
