I thought I'd share this image of a photo shoot/room makeover that I worked on while I was on staff at Decorating Ideas magazine. I transformed the entire room based on a number of requests by the homeowners. One of the things that was a high priority for the couple was a storage solution for the room. They asked for something that would fit their wall space without feeling too cumbersome. We ruled out an armoire for space and budget reasons. They wanted something that was light and airy with a feeling of an armoire. After some thought, I came up with an economical solution of evenly spaced deep wall shelves with baskets for storage and thought it would be fun to add a little twist by securing legs to the bottom shelf to create the loose illusion of a furniture piece. This option gave them the storage they desired and the airy feeling that they had asked me for. It was also an unexpected element to a typical shelving display.
