My bookshelves :) I need more shelves (and maybe a bigger apartment), because many of my books are stacked 2-deep, so only the lucky ones have their spines visible. The diagonal shelves look cool, but they make shelving and accessing individual books very tough and not plants or breakable decorations can sit on them.

This is absolutely beautiful…

Paradise.
