Everything in Its Place

Storage for Stylish Homes
Author: Rebecca Winward
Publisher: N.A
ISBN: 9781849756631
Category: House & Home
Page: 192
View: 5210
Both practical and stylish, Everything in its Place is a new storage bible that showcases a wide variety of successful storage solutions that certainly don't skimp on style. The days of simply wanting to 'get the look' are over: nowadays, we are more interested in achieving a happy, smooth-running, and contented home life, and it's not purely the aesthetics of our interiors that we're pondering. Key to this more considered (and, some might say, realistic) approach to homemaking is the storage of all life's paraphernalia, from everyday essentials (kitchen equipment, bicycles) to seasonal items (skis and suitcases) and, of course, all those bits and pieces you don't need very often but still want to hang on to (wedding photograph albums, grandma's china). We have more stuff than ever before, so where (and how) should we keep it all? In Everything in its Place, Rebecca Winward demonstrates how our experience of every room in the house can be improved through a clever choice of storage solutions that balance form and function. She also addresses the fact that, while storage is inherently practical, it also holds huge potential for decorative impact. Examining the subject from every possible angle, Rebecca considers what to store where and what best to store it in, before going on to discuss the storage demands of different items (clothes, books, crafting equipment) and even storage by style, from minimalist to vintage to rustic, to name but a few.
