Book storage

 

This is a really creative solution for storing books. Open staircase, some steel rods with attaching shelves and you have yourself a really cool little library area. Via Elemental Architecture.

White - theme of the day

WHOA. White shelving filled with glass - what's not to love?!?! (The cleaning part perhaps...)

A home by Klopf Architecture

The folks at Klopf Architecture sent over some of their projects and this one immediately caught my eye. This is a dream home for a collector or avid bookworm - the amount of shelving is amazing! (I'd have to hire someone to come and do the dusting though). Here's a bit of info on this fantastic, net-zero energy home: The owners de-constructed their existing house when they realized that any single-story design meeting their needs would completely eliminate their back yard. They directed Klopf Architecture to design a net-zero energy, two-level home to be a contemporary interpretation of Eichler in style yet keep their single story neighborhood happy. The site, a cul-de-sac lot which was the not large enough for a single-story home that would fit the needs of these owners who both work from home. They wanted this to be their “final” residence so Klopf needed to design a larger-than-normal home to suit their lifestyle needs. Instead of adding a second story (and annoying the neighbors) they opted for a partially-submerged lower level that Klopf designed furthest from a basement as possible (with a pulled-back floor plate, a light-filled “atrium” and a lower level light well).

Randomness

 

I grew up having it drilled in my head that you NEVER EVER wear shoes in the house. And I still believe that. Because I don't want the dog shit you just stepped on smeared on my antique kilim. Bring some cute little slippers/flats when I invite you over. Maybe one of these days I'll just stencil it on the floor like above. 

Love the setup of these bookcases. The first photo is just a freaking food pantry, yet everything is so well organized you almost have to look twice to realize it's not just some knick knacks on display. And the second photo shows how stacking books in small piles makes it look sculptural and more interesting graphically.
