Lift your shelves To maximise storage space, it’s tempting to squeeze in as many cupboards and shelves as possible. Yet this room, designed by 2LG Studio, is an exercise in restraint on that front – ideal if you don’t have masses to store in your living room. The closed cupboards are low to the ground and shelving starts high and looks wonderful filled with plants – something to consider if you have room for books elsewhere. Painting the shelves a different colour to the walls really works, too, especially here as part of a palette of blues. Employing one cabinet for extra seating is practical in a small living room, and also allows for an additional textile to add interest to the overall scheme.
