Clear the Clutter with Built-ins! Seating & Storage Solutions
Book shelves, banquette, coat closet, room divider, custom seating & storage combination that makes clutter vanish!
My First VisitJeanette needed some assistance with the lighting in her 1949 Ravenna bungalow. After all, it was December, when daylight is fleeting and nighttime is at 4 in the afternoon in Seattle. The front door opened right into the living room. It was Christmas and there were things everywhere, all over the place. Free-flowing and unattached .. as if there was no gravity, Endora, Samantha’s mother, was seen floating on the ceiling. In order to begin again with a clean slate, I thought of twitching my nose to make the clutter disappear. Well .. of course not being a witch, I knew for me that wouldn’t work, so I had another idea, not fast, but efficient.
The Storage Hatch.. abracadabra…down the hatch!
“The Book Shelf”.. books of shelves a 3 year-old can manage.
“A Place to Be”
This new room became a place to be, to pause, to gather thought, to play with toys, and to paint, and read together…. (window seat cushions to come).
The remaining 20% of the problem was solved by installing an antique Craftsman lantern as an entry light, and a Pembrook ceiling flush mount by Rejuvenation, centered in the big room. Perfect for the era! (Item # A2141 OB, B4984 Etched)
My client-family is thrilled with the results and that is a good thing….or the kid (a.k.a the sorcerer’s apprentice) might have turned me into a pumpkin!
