Create a still life. Books find a home alongside art and other treasures on these lightweight suspension shelves. The airy unit serves double duty as storage and display case. Make it casual, thrifty choices in the kitchen of this northern Washington cabin include a mix of open shelves, plywood walls, and laminate cabinets.
Solo style. Floating shelves provide display space in previously forgotten spaces, like this seating nook. Since these command a lot of attention, be artful with your choices: photo books, unique souvenirs, and anything that could start a conversation belong here.
Pack it in, above all else, shelves are storage, so don’t be afraid to fill every last corner with books, artifacts, or spare vases and vessels. There’s no shortcut to this: You’ll have to play with arrangements and the balance until you like the overall look. But don’t forget to sneak in some woven baskets for a place to stash the less-pretty items.
