You know that feeling when you have been searching high and low for the perfect piece for a certain space in the house, and you finally find it? The angels start to sing and the room is suddenly lit in an Instagram-like filter to where everything is just perfect, there are no flaws in sight. Call me simple, but that is exactly the sort of euphoria I felt when I found this fab new shelf at Burke Decor.
I prayed that it looked just as good in person as it did online, and that the quality was equally good. I do this every time I order online, cause honestly–you just never know. Am I right? Luckily, this one was the real deal. And the best part? NO ASSEMBLY REQUIRED. I pulled it out of the box, and didn’t have to wait until my husband got around to assembling it. The shelves folded out sort of like a ladder. All I did was wipe it down (just cause I do that with everything new), placed in the space I wanted, and decorated it. This was me:
Let me back up a bit here. Next to the couch in the living room there is a space that is awkwardly small. Too small for anything dramatic. The couch has an arm that is too tall for a side table, even with a lamp to top it, the sofa overpowers anything that I’ve tried putting in that spot. I have been on the hunt for a tall and slim shelf that works with the “ship lap” wall on one side, and the plain brown couch on the other.
Browsing through the Burke Decor site landed me this beautiful piece and I couldn’t be happier! Burke Décor is a lifestyle and home furnishing brand compelled by design, function and form. They’re a group of designers, photographers, artists and resourceful style-makers inspired by artfulness and great design. For reals though, they have so many beautiful items for the whole house. I wanted like every single thing on there! If only time and budget was limitless, I’d go nuts!
The rustic shade of wood and wrought iron combo makes this a perfect fit in my home. Take a look at this table that I already had. It sits clear across on the other side of the room, but matches really well. Kind of give my long narrow room a little congruency. Congruency is good 🙂
In this crazy world we are living in these days, the simple pleasure of a new shelf for the house is everything! Especially, if it’s the one last piece you have been hunting high and low for, you know? Headed back to Burke Decor for more stuff….brb.
