Flipping through junk mail the other day, I was struck by the fabulous presentations in the pages of the Container Store, of all places. How on earth does one make storage and shelving units sexy?
image sourceJust the other day, in fact, I suggested to a client that she paint the backs of her built in bookcases in a grouping of light and dark olive and turquoise, ala Mondrian. She looked at me in shock and asked, "Is it really okay to have that much fun?" I laughed and reassured her that yes, fun could be had with paint color selection.
The safety of this small contained space- a shelving unit, opens up many possibilities to go boldly where no-one would usually go in a full-space.
(To those of you who actually -are- as tidy as these pictures show, I would like to invite you to come over to my house to organize me)
That is all.
