Modern Shelving

Anyone living with two or more people in their home knows that things can quickly get disorderly and modern shelving is the key to happiness. If two or more of those said people happen to be children, then you know disorder can take on a life of its own without an organization strategy.

Whether you have an abundance of stuff or just the right amount, chances are you are always looking for ways to stack it, sort it and store it.  And for me, modern shelving seems to be the best way to go about it. They're simple and streamlined. Keep in mind that with shelves whatever you store or stack is always on display. The simpler the shelving, the more your books and accessories stand out. 

I happen to love the way this works, because when function and design meet it is a beautiful thing.

When it comes to shelving in a children’s space, I love to keep it simple or go all out creative. The first look showcases how shelves can be used for basic storage.I love the clean look these shelving units provide.

On the other end of the spectrum you can use shelves in a more decorative fashion. The idea of backing your shelves with wallpaper to give a unique and one-of-kind look is so fun.  Then just prop your favorite keepsakes or children’s toys to complete the look.  Bonus . . . . fewer toys on the floor.

Why not let shelves take center stage? When you pick a shelving unit that has modern lines and a great shape it’s like a piece of art. These shelves work great in any room of the house, but I love how they are used in the heart of the home. Dishes put up, taken down, art displayed, toys tossed up and plopped down for play.  

Shelves are modern art in action. Now what other piece of home décor can boast that?
