Store on built-in shelvesThese handsome shelves have been built slightly proud of the alcoves, providing extra-deep storage and making the perfect discreet home for a TV. Painting the storage black helps the technology blend in, so the eye is drawn

Well this is the largest space with one single color on the walls. It is called Cotton Ball form Silk Trading company and is a milk paint hence very chalky and flat with a hint of color that the white trim accentuates.
Similar paint colors to try are Decorator's White and Swiss Coffee OC-45 by Benjamin Moore.
A friend described her place as "the house in eight shades of white.” That aesthetic is captured here in the living room. Built-in bookshelves separate the main seating space from the kitchen; they were deliberately built just shy of the ceiling to allow natural light to flow in from a kitchen skylight
can be moved, how was that built in? Regularly spaced holes (like most kitchen cabinets) or something else? - What materials did you use? Is this painted wood or something else? Thanks so much!
Hi Linda, we would recommend MDF. It is typically less expensive, but also more durable for this application. A uniformly smooth paint finish is more easily achieve on MDF.
I would love these built-in shelves in my office or hallway to a Den or reading area.
