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.
If the shelf fits, use it. Eighteen inches of wall space may have more possibilties than you think. Designer Lotta Jansdotter put a Benno CD tower on its end and used it as shelving for books and curios. Rough and tumble bath, shelves shaped like skateboards (from Pottery Barn Kids) add fun to a wall of concrete wall tiles mimicking masonry. Bright towels pick up their color for another accent.
Open Kitchen Shelving. Open shelves feel hospitable―guests can just grab wineglasses off the shelf―and force you to edit. Try following this homeowner's rule of thumb: “If you use it more than once a week, have it out. If you use it a few times a month, stick it in a cabinet. Once or twice a year? It belongs in the basement.” Build in flexibility, cubbies are ideal for storage and display―and are easy to stack and rearrange.
