Built-In Bookshelf Decorating Ideas

These built-ins sit proudly in our main living room on either side of our fireplace. The cupboards below are stuffed with our family's vast collection of board games and the shelves above are filled with pretty books and favorite treasures.

My favorite part about these shelves is the cohesive color pallet. I always see beautifully styled shelves in magazines, but honestly who has that many pretty books??

Kid's Quiet Bags/Church Bags

Kid's can be pretty fabulous. They have boundless energy and often have an infinite amount of stories to tell. But once in a while kids just needs to be quiet. Maybe you are going out to eat at a restaurant or visiting a friend or going to church and you just need something to keep their little hands busy and their minds engaged without all the bouncing and talking. These little quiet bags are the perfect solution.
