Storage room divider. A freestanding cabinet provides open and closed storage while serving as the principal divider between the open living-dining and kitchen areas in this Portola Valley, California, home.
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.
Quick sophistication. Quirky collections—like the owl figurines here—are just the thing to break up a book lineup. But this eclectic shelf illustrates another key concept to a polished shelf: Pull books to the front of the shelf. Pop-up shelves, crates climbing up the wall add another dimension to this living room, plus the chance to mix hung art in with the boxes.
