Spotlight what’s precious. A teeny tiny shelf calls for a really special something. Display an item that has a personal story behind it, because inevitably people will ask for one. Give them space, extend built-ins to create a frame for the door or adjoining room. Take advantage of all that space by displaying photos, art, and some well-chosen trinkets among the books.
Background story. Striped wallpaper on the back wall of these shelves gives these lofted shelves even more character. Try repositionable wallpaper if you’re afraid to commit to a design. Mimicking built-ins, a combination of a low credenza and two slim bookshelves almost perfectly fills this wallspace, mimicking the look of built-ins.
Storage wall. A single storage wall makes this compact Seattle kitchen feel roomy. A creamy white (Bridal Veil from Behr Paints) forms the backdrop for the rich warm hue and pattern of mahogany cabinetry. Jerusalem Gold limestone slab counters and the stainless steel of the island.
