Pretty & Practical Open Shelving

Showcase family books, puzzles and games.

In this contemporary home by architect David Zacharko, the open shelving behind the living room's big sectional was designed with beauty and brains: it houses loads of books, puzzles and games, plus cubbies to show off select vases. Lightweight bamboo shelves add a natural touch and keep the white from looking sterile, while bright pillows add colour.
