light shelving

tags: , , ,

top of the stairs
A tall slim windows sits at the top of the Wendy House staricase of doom. In February it  drenches the hallway in the glow of snowcloud light. Warmly – double-glazed. Privately – not overlooked by other houses. Nakedly – without dressings of any kind. A few coloured glass bowls sit on the low sill. On sunny days the glassware sparkles. I contemplate this window several times a day, when I climb the wooden hill to Bedfordshire

window dressing
The Danish Drama series’ (The Killing, Borgen) and mumsie’s memories of her Danish friend’s home have inspired me.  I’m planning to dress the window with some glass shelves to hold trailing plants and more sparkling coloured glass ornaments

Paint prototype
I’ve used Paint to mock-up what different placements might look-like from the perspective of someone, probably me, climbing the staircase of doom

Which option do you think works best ?:

Glass shelves across hallway window

light shelving

    High, one shelf. I would want to make sure you could see the view out the window!

    I remembered you saying that you were always a party when you were asked “Are we a party?” when you walked in a restaurant.
    This made me giggle when I was stopped at a traffic light yesterday. Just wanted to let you know that.

    How is Tiger doing these days?

    High – definitely not two shelves. Glass shelf will sparkle in the backlight, or show the dust. What would a mirror laid face up on the shelf do? – should reflect light upward, but not allow the light to travel through. A mirror face down would not reveal a dusty shelf, but what reflection would it have?
