Manolo's Shelves

Living room shelves
Manolo finally finished installing the beautiful shelves he designed
for the living room's concrete wall. His talent just blows me away.
Love the combination of concrete, wood and stainless steel.
I can't believe we've been living here for a whole year already,
it seems like we moved in yesterday.

These are so clean and shiny! What is this cute collection of colorful books to the left of the "Ando" and "Casa" books? Very beautiful!

So Beautiful Geninne. I really admire all you do. Your hubby did a great job mounting them. I cannot imagine how they stay on the wall like that.
Everything in your house is so nice.

Yes everything in your house is inspirational and exceptional. So glad to see you have an Australian book on your shelf; the one by Shaun Tan. He's clever isn't he? Hope you and your children enjoy his work :)

Bellisimo! Yo tambien note el libro de Shaun Tan, nada mas y nada menos que junto a Mafalda :) Good stuff!

So beautiful and functional. They look like they're floating. Love to see Mafalda and Shaun Tan together. :) I picked up Lost and Found by Shaun Tan the other day, and just love getting lost in the gorgeous art.

Halina, I believe those are Penguin Hardcover Classics with the covers designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. In October they will also sell Penguin Threads with copies of covers embroidered by Jillian Tamaki. *swoon*

The shelves are very beautiful. I would love to know how he mounted them--metal rods or wood slots (not sure if I have the carpentry terms right)? As for the shelf arrangements, I love those every now and then hits of beautiful turquoise (also on your pillows!).

Toda Mafalda! Yo también lo tengo, qué bueno! Y me encantan los libros de grecas y dibujos a la izquierda de el de "ANDO" y "CASA". Dan ganas de cogerlos todos y ponerse a hojearlos. Tenéis una casa preciosa, tan diáfana y ligera!

I like these concrete walls in your house.
Good for the combination with natural materials.
Especially wood is a nice contrast.

Are those solid wood? It seems it would be so heavy, and yet he has made them look weightless on the wall. Well done Manolo.

These are so beautiful! I've been trying to track down a tutorial as to how your husband installed them?

Can you tell me where he purchased the white metal plates (?) on either side, I cant seem to find anything like them!

Look forward to hearing from you! brookekaylor(at)
