Built In


I remember when we were house hunting, every time we stumbled into home that had built in shelving we ooohed and ahhhed.  It didn't matter that they were a hundred years old and needed to be redone, the fact that it was part of the plan was impressive enough.  Here is a little taste of built ins that need no work. The office image, I especially adore.  Especially because it could house an insane amount of collected magazines.  But also to note, is the styling of the shelves.  This last images is truly one of my faves because of the amazing repetition of colour and objects in the shelving, that adds calm and co-ordination to the already serene setting.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing these great pictures. I am hoping to build in a fireplace with shelves and a tv so the first image is brilliant!

  2. I agree that built-ins are a great way to go. I've always got tons of books that I'm looking to store in an organized way!!

  3. Love the look of built-ins. They add design interest and can organize all the great stuff we collect. I could move right into these rooms.

  4. I heart built-ins. We're getting ready to re-vamp our dated ones and I can't wait to modernize them a bit.
