collective soul.

i love a well-curated collection. whether it be a stunning art gallery like this one from the apartment, or a well-loved pile of books, when pulled together as a cohesive collection it’s perfection for me. like-objects grouped together as collections just work and look effortlessly stylish. these are some real good ones.

a shop called all that is solid, via what she has found, above and below.

floor to ceiling built-in bookcases, via elding oscarson.

more Marvelous built-in bookcases, via HEGE GREENALL-SCHOLTZ.

perfect styling: sean fennessy photography; photographer hallie burton; and styling by amanda rodriguez.

the perfect reading nook, via the apartment.

the exchange, and the Guesthouse Maison Rika in amsterdam, via elle interior.

    I love the wall of frames and pictures. I’d want that in the place I end up living in on my own. The stack of books are awesome also. Love it.
