We just saw a post on Stylemonger about a simple item being used in posh surroundings and how it can make a big design impact. This simple step ladder...

...was pressed into service next to a larger bookshelf as both a practical item and a sweetly decorative spot for overflow books. According to the post, it was sponged with the same paint that was used on the walls to help it to blend in just a bit.

What do you think? Thumbs up for mixing things up with the little ladder or just too out of place in an elegant library?
