An elegant, vintage-inspired chair is seated next to a modern geometric-based table in this sitting room. The turquoise curtains serve as the primary color focus in the light room, and cool floating bookshelves provide funky storage for a large collection of books.
The island in this contemporary kitchen was created as a hub for people to gather around and was made to look like a cube that rose out of the concrete. Since the homeowner didn't want to use stools, it also provides ample storage space on both sides.
No more stepping on piles of scattered toys and books! Built-in shelving fills the wall beneath the window with tons of room for toy baskets, book storage and even a few cabinets and drawers for things that are easier just to hide away.
Erin Marshall of Live Pretty on a Penny says, "Being organized is key when you live a leasing-lifestyle. Turn to space-saving and unconventional items that are beautiful and functional to effectively store and organize items." Here, this kid's room combines narrow shelves and picture shelves around a bench for ample toy and book storage.
Under the two windows that flank the fireplace sit two metal and glass console tables with outdoor table lamps that have a white bulbous base. Assorted coffee table books and decorative accessories like a silver and marble clock and antique decoy duck decorate the shelves of the console tables.
