Galvanized pipe shelving is super-popular with homeowners who love the modern rustic look, for the same reason Chip and Jo love the shelving style: It's easy to build, inexpensive to create and adds industrial style to virtually any space, from a living room to a kitchen to a bathroom.
Open shelving is a matter of preference in the kitchen, but elsewhere around the house — like, say, your living room — it can be nearly impossible to avoid. The catch is that if it isn't done right, your display of beloved tomes can make the entire room look like a mess. First things first: clear the clutter, getting rid of any items that aren't beautiful enough to put on display. Then, stick to an even mix of the six items Dolley Frearson of High Fashion Home laid out for us here.
Those light blonde woods we remember from the nineties are making their way back into architects’ and designers’ current finish palettes., except with a twist. Instead of the warm honey tones of the past, the current version of light wood is taking on a bleached or limened ashy tone, closer to gray than yellow. White Oak and White Ash the new woods of choice. Good bye Espresso and Wenge finish. We will put you in storage for revisiting 20 years from now.
