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.
Find a theme. A palette of ivory, indigo, and naturals helps these eclectic shelves look pulled together. If your shelves are a blonde wood tone or white, choose deeply colored objects that contrast.
Stair savvy. Staircase walls are notoriously difficult to deal with: If you hang photos, how do you line them up? If you paint the wall, does the color look equally good on both levels? Shelves make it easier—and create extra storage space. Special treatment, a cherry red bookshelf is like a shot of energy in this traditional home. The strong color acts like a frame for its contents, so give them some extra love with interesting bookends and small houseplants.
