What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cynthia Lynn Photography added this to My Houzz: Parisian Flair in Chicago
The couple recently splurged on this custom built-in bookshelf in the study. Lighter hues cloak this room; Languid Blue by Sherwin-Williams accents the colors of the lake just outside the windows. Desk: Horchow; sofa: Walter E. Smithe; coffee table: West Elm
Box everything. Now that you've cleared out space in your storage areas, think about ways to make your storage really work for you. One simple but effective strategy is to tuck every single item in storage — whether in closets, cupboards or in deep storage — into a box or bin. Containers instantly make things look neater, and it's also easier to shift items around or grab a box you need rather than trying to unload armfuls of loose stuff from a shelf.
