I'm awaiting delivery of the IKEA shelves my friend bought for me today. I took down the screen that formerly covered this wall...and am enjoying it's very offwhiteness. Emptiness. Clean. Uncluttered. But not for long.
Russ H characterized the 5's domicile as "decorated with shelves." As of now, I have 25 shelves of books, art stuff, wine, mugs, etc in my living-dining-study space. Soon to add another 11. (Have a bunch more in my bedroom.)
