MontlakeTraditional Dining Room, Seattle

This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

    The window treatments were custom built, but unfortunately we don't have record of who made them.

7. Plate rail. Though not always close to the top of a wall, the plate rail serves as a platform to display a collection of objects. The depth of the plate rail can vary from very shallow, in those instances where a plate is being displayed, to quite deep when large objects are to be displayed. A plate rail’s location on the wall (higher up for deeper rails) will also determine its depth. For example, larger objects requiring a deeper rail will necessitate placing the plate rail higher on the wall so it’s out of the way, while a thin rail for displaying plates can also serve as a chair rail.Hire a carpenter to create a custom picture or plate rail

I appreciate this shelf blending in with the color of the walls so the eyes don't necessarily stop to notice what's stored on it.

Use the height for display purposes. A high shelf is used to display a collection of glass pieces. Creating this horizontal element minimizes the height of the ceiling. More:

Интересный вариант — продлить полку, расположенную над окном, и вывести ее на соседнюю стену
