Previously, this room was covered with wood paneling, and the bookcases blended in with the walls. Now the bookcases pop against electric blue walls thanks to a coat of black paint and the direction of HGTV's Cousins Undercover.
With a built-in buffet and two metal chairs, this bright breakfast nook offers plenty of seats for guests. Dark wood paneling contrasts nicely with the white walls, while a corner shelf provides extra storage for cookbooks.
Pastel blue, yellow, pink, and green give a bright feel to this kitchen eating area. A beaded crystal chandelier hangs over an oval table. Clear chairs blend in with the rest of the kitchen and a corner shelf holds vintage photos.
In this cozy corner, bins hold stuffed animal friends and blankets; labels secured with clothespins are a cute and flexible way to tag what's inside. Colorful kids' books become part of the visual fun on a tower bookshelf.
Beside the top of the line, stainless steel refrigerator, tall, built-in shelves include storage space for linens and dishware in the home's second kitchen. Lower and upper cabinets on the other side of the room offer additional storage for kitchen essentials, and a corner bookshelf includes space for cookbooks.
A playroom wouldn't be complete without a reading corner. Luckily, a bookcase fits snugly against the wall, with small wire baskets to keep the kiddos' favorite stories -- and stuffed animals -- organized.
This tropical bedroom features a quaint sitting area in one corner. Two white slip-covered chairs sit in front of a built-in shelf, which holds several decorative storage baskets, candles and fresh flowers.
This well-appointed French country bedroom features a comfortable four poster bed, sitting area by the window, gorgeous chandelier and built-in bookshelf. Every corner of the room is decorated for a visually appealing look.
This living room feels endlessly expansive thanks to its high ceiling and wall of windows and French doors. A built-in bookshelf niftily tucks into one corner, matching the cozy mood of the leather armchairs.
