Surprise!
Today's Canadiana designers are me and Big Chuck! You may remember a while back I told you we had some DIY projects on the go for our new apartment. Well, they're pretty much done, and today I'd love to share with you one of the projects, our Ace Hotel inspired bookshelf.

You've probably seen the original DIY post on The Brick House blog and perhaps the similar shelf that Daniel and Valeria from the Hindsvik blog made too, we took some inspiration from both units, but in the end opted for a simpler freestanding shelf.

When it comes to styling, you'll have to forgive me. Since returning from Europe we've had to start pretty much from scratch and have yet to accumulate the lovely odds and ends that make a shelf look pretty. We do however have this gorgeous Eames child's chair and I think it works so well with the shelf. The matte black chair base and shelf frame = match made in heaven. Now to find the perfect print to go on that wall and a pair of antlers for the top shelf and we'll be cookin'!

Have a great Tuesday!
