Bonjour Celine

October 6th, 2009

And in keeping with our theme of “The Junction”, Celine sent us photos of a fab orange library bookshelf set that she and her husband recently purchased from SMASH. We’ve been following Celine’s blog Bonjour Celine for awhile now, and she never disappoints with lovely photos of her personal interests (Correspondence) or random Toronto/Ontario oddities (The BIG APPLE).


Celine: “We live in a skinny row house that is parted out into two apartments. This part of our apartment is only about 9 feet wide, as wide as the skinniest house in New York! Everything is essentially a hallway, so we have to be very vertically efficient. This shelving unit we got from Smash is perfect. It holds all our books and also gives us space to display our little knick knacks and framed photos.

Paul from Smash told my husband that these were library shelves used at the University of Western Ontario! We love the orange!”

  4. Celine is so lucky to have those fabulous orange book shelves. so practical for storage. I saw them available at Smash a while back, and giggled to myself; my dad installed them in the library at Western University way back in the 60’s (his photograph appeared in the local newspaper). I was about 10 years old and he put together a small 3′ wide x 5′ high unit in my bedroom. Those orange shelves made my bedroom feel very “pop” and I had books and my miniature dollies displayed.
