Apartment Therapy has a great roundup of colourful storage ideas, and I loved this idea of painting drawers in Pantone-inspired shades. This split chest of drawers is from Danish designer Finn Juhl's own home, via The North Elevation blog.

Pick up a mid-century style dresser or desk from a garage sale or thrift store, choose your favourite colour palette (Reds? Greens? Blues?), and paint each drawer a different shade in that palette. (Paint chips from The Home Depot often have complementary recommendations.) Leave the wood frame as is like the piece above or paint it white. These multi-hued drawers would add a burst of colour to a home office or kid's room in a snap.

For even more pop, try wallpapering drawer fronts.
