Hello and welcome to a new year! I took a few days off and it’s amazing what a few days of rest can do. I’ve got a few new fabrics I’ve designed that will soon be released, new art prints too. Tomorrow I’m looking at a few real estate listings for their renovation and flip potential, and I’ll be sharing an organizational DIY project I finished later this week. Good things are happening!
January is that month we all seek to reorganize, declutter, and start fresh. Great looking storage always helps, we like when attractive form meets useful function. Basic cabinets are wonderful of course, and closets serve a storage purpose for hiding all our stuff. I like open storage looks that are unique or creative and also serve a purpose. I spent some time looking around at open storage ideas that are modular or stackable in geometric shapes.
I spied this first image with stacked cubes and thought it was such a cool way to mount square shelves. They’re sculptural in their arrangement it’s a clever way to maximize vertical wall space. I like how they are more muted because they’re painted the same color of the wall.
This stacked storage system fills an entire wall and accommodates multiple size objects.
