Storage in yellow and grey

21 Mar

Three little words that make my eyes light up! Cast yours over these lovely ideas for a bright and organised hallway from Swedish mag, Drömhem & Trädgård.

1950s larders like this crop up all the time on eBay – I like them because they tend to be fairly narrow so are perfect for slotting into alcoves. Even the really tatty ones can be made over with a lick of paint,  new handles and a scrap of bright wallpaper on the back of the shelf. Personally I’d have used something a bit bolder here – the summery Cow Parsley by Cole & Son perhaps?

I’m fairly sure this display cubby is made from a PRÄNT plywood storage box from IKEA fixed to the wall by its base and lined with pretty paper. I have several of these boxes for my filing but hadn’t thought to use them like this.

I’m a big fan of these wire storage baskets – in my dreams I’ll have a dedicated craft room with Kilner jars of colour-coded buttons and ribbons, and fabric swatches folded beautifully into baskets like these. A girl can but dream.
