Simple window shelf. A single shelf in an unexpected place can expand your storage right where you need it most. This one in front of a kitchen window frees counter space and keeps cooking ingredients handy. Colorful often-used items are grouped together for a visual display on top of an antique cabinet. Cooking utensils, beans and spices, small tools, and a chalkboard for posting reminders lend warmth.
Mid-century inspiration. The slender proportions common to mid-century modern architecture inspired this shelf—and the slats it bisects. The fringed gourds show the power of the rule of three: Group accessories in trios to make them look like a collection.
Black out. A dark bookcase—either painted or with a dark stain—shines a spotlight on its contents as a whole, so think of them as an architectural feature. Line up black bookshelves, either built-in or stand-alone pieces, to add a focal point to a room that doesn’t have one.
