This reminds me of my first flat. Classic Victorian house interior with an original fireplace, books in the alcove. However I wasn't stylish enough to have those wonderfully chic grey walls with high white accents.
floating "built-in" shelves in alcoves to either side of fire place; lower cabinets with punch tin fronts to store stereo & speakers; upper cabinets for books & knick-knacks; largest spacing between shelves is
Scaffold board shelves I love this and means we could have bottom shelves deeper and whatever spacing we wanted BUT I don't trust the walls, the chimney breast is brick and a mess so think starting to drill in to it could end in disaster
