More than books. The key to beautifully arranged shelves is variety. Fill some shelves with books (don’t forget to switch between lining them up and stacking them) and fill the rest with art, objects, and houseplants. Focus on letting each collection of items tell a story—the baskets you picked up on your latest trip to Mexico, or your love of black and white historical photos.
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.
Found opportunity. Clever thinking led to carving out shallow niches beneath this window. The shelves don’t take up any room in this cozy master suite, and the addition of a chair and lamp turns this corner into a mini library. One box, three ways. Stacked colorful crates provide flexible storage for this nursery. As the child grows, they can be rearranged, upended to use as a small table, or flipped to use as a basket.
