Simplistic Versatile Bookshelf

by - July 24, 2017

Do you shop at CB2?  Have you heard of CB2?  It's Crate and Barrel's little sister and has a ton of great items for the home.  In our house we have several CB2 items and we take a lot of design inspiration from their catalogues.  You can actually view their catalogue online here if you don't want to send them your address and receive monthly catalogues.  I find that although CB2 tends to lean towards a modern design their pieces are versatile and can be used in homes that don't necessarily lean towards a modern design.  Our home has bits of decor pulling from modern, traditional and Scandinavian design inspiration.  And this Helix Acacia Bookshelf is so simple and minimal that it fits right in with our home decor.  And the price point is great for the amazing quality that you receive from this piece.  I actually see the Helix Acacia Bookshelf all over other blogs, specifically home decor/ design blogs.  It comes in the 70 inch tall bookshelf that I own and a 96 inch tall version that has more shelves.   Since I own this bookshelf I can tell you that it is very sturdy and was simple to put together and mount to the wall.  It gives my more traditional bedroom reading corner a more modern and industrial look.  We plan on switching out our curtains and the leather chair eventually but we have other furniture in this room to switch out first so they are on the back burner until I decide on a new dresser drawer set.  I plan on switching out the curtains for something traditional, like a white damask style with navy blue or grey details to off set our grey walls.  I was thinking of purchasing these from the #Nsale (Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale).  But enough about that, back to the bookshelf, CB2 has a similar bookshelf in white that comes in a 72.5 inch tall size and a 96 inch tall size and also a similar version in grey that comes in a 96 inch tall size.  

This bookshelf has been the first stepping stone in my design quest for our bedroom in hopes our bedroom will eventually turn out amazing in a way that speaks to our personalities.  I plan on sharing other CB2 items around our home again soon.  I felt that this bookshelf was so good that it was worth sharing even though our bedroom reading corner is not finished.  

Below I have listed some other blogs that I've seen CB2 items on:

Thank you reading and have great Monday!
