  • Inspired Storage designsOverloaded with unnecessary trinkets

    Even the most committed minimalist can appreciate the sentimental value of beautiful accessories, but it can be tricky to know where they belong. Rather than your house being overloaded with unnecessary trinkets, these fragments of personality could be hidden away for the right season in a gorgeous storage unit.

    With storage units, think laterally - is it purely aesthetic or do you need to use it for endless amounts of junk that litters your home? A strong proportioned sideboard unit can be extremely grown-up and add sophistication to any room, as well as being a haven for those extra pieces that need not be on show.

    Storage can also be very elegant, be it a contemporary magazine rack or CD holder. Why not fuse salvaged pieces with show-stopping modern units for that juxtaposition? Storage can give your home a new lease of

    life. Incorporate strong lighting around your storage piece as it can help cast shadows and can cast new light on a traditional storage heirloom.

    If you live in an apartment or studio room then storage is essential, especially if you have lots of friends that constantly descend on you. Its important to keep things organised so that you feel your home and your life is in order.
