At the End of the Hallway

We've been living in this house for just under a year...and I've shared some of our remodeling projects here and here, but we still have a lot to do, like install closet doors, finish off the trim, install light can inserts...etc etc!  But we also have some unfinished spaces in our home...such as the end of the hallway:


Our master bedroom is to the left and two guest bedrooms are to the right.  I look at this space multiple times a day and it just seems so bare!  So the husband and I went to World Market over the weekend to look for a nice occasional table or shelf...they had a great sale going on too so I was determined to find a good solution.  We looked and looked but nothing seemed right.  On our way out we say a shelf, and I thought just maybe it could work!


The Seesaw Shelf is more modern than my "normal" traditional style, but the width was perfect and I thought I would give it a shot...plus it's on sale right now!  So we brought it home and it looks like it was made for the space!  Here it is!


Here it is from down the hall.


This is a start to the accessorizing...I totally shopped the house.  On the left:

Top: Vases and decorative piece-Target
Middle-Wedding photo, frame from Pottery Barn
Bottom: Vintage candle holders...or maybe future bases for lamps?

On the right:

Top: Glass Bowl from Crate & Barrel
Middle: Books and gardenia scented Pacifica Candle
Bottom: Books and Lantern, last seen here

So what do you think?  I really like the modern look of the shelf but think I balanced it with the traditional decor...I've gotten so much inspiration from my fellow bloggers!  I'd love to hear your ideas on what accessories I should add!

  3. I LOVE IT! You did a great job styling it! If you were going to add anything else I'm a big fan of greenery (like cattail balls or preserved boxwood balls). Have a great day!!!
