I have a few odd nooks and crannies in my home. This one odd corner is in my guest room, which is located in the "west wing" of my home....OK, my home is small, however when I refer to this end of my home, which is actually due west, I feel somewhat regal and that is how I justify wearing my crown!
So, back to my nook and cranny....
This was a challenge to decorate when we moved into this home and it has slowly morphed into a gallery wall of paintings and prints from our travels to through the US , Canada, Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, Europe and Asia:
The small bookcase was in my family home growing up and it fits perfectly in this nook. It also holds all of my favorite books....
...and every room needs a touch of black and white - RIGHT?!
Here's another odd corner in my hallway, also located in the "west wing":
This is an old smoking stand that I purchased at an auction. An ashtray used to sit in the top and I imagine pipes or cigarettes used to sit in the drawer. I painted it in white chalk paint to coordinate with the woodwork and placed a lamp on top, which just happened to fit in the ashtray holder.
A little bit of hand painting and fringe "dolled" it up a bit
It is a perfect fit for this odd shaped corner!
As unique as nooks and crannies can be, they can also be a challenge to decorate.
Have you had this challenge?
