I’m all for: The gray walls and the wall they’ve nestled that L-shaped sofa into to make a cozylicious corner, it’s very nice there and the white shelf with the art makes for a lovely gallery-in-rotation, which is perfect for Etsy print collectors to move stuff around without hammering into the wall each time I decide to change things up! Like the yellow accents, too. Photo from Angelica Gonzalez.
A shelving system like this would serve as a great desk/breakfast bar! I would just hide most of the clutter in cute storage bins, have a lot more plants, and make the desk (laptop) space wider (to suit 2)
