The person who can eke out storage space in his/her home is a happy person…because where there is storage, there is order. Shelves are a perfect way to do this, and there are many places (some of them unexpected) in homes where shelves work miracles. This is especially true when shelves can be created to perform double-duty as an aesthetic style element that doubles as functional storage space.
These bright red bedroom bookshelves take an otherwise “wasted” wall and turn it into an eye-catching display of various books and knick-knacks. Where built-in bookshelves tend to appear more solemn and dark, these bright free-floating shelves provide a lighter, airier feel to the room overall. I love how the bold color makes each shelf stand out and, combined, creates an artistic element.
