The book showcases colorful shelving images as you are about to see and I am so inspired by it that it actually leaves me confused. I want to do it all and don't know where to begin. Just this afternoon, I declared to my husband that I'd like to strip down all of my perfectly good oakwood kitchen cabinets and replace them with clean bright white shelves. He looked at me wildly and simply asked 'Why?'.
I had no practical reason, all I imploringly wanted to say was 'Because - I saw it on Shelf Expression!' Sigh. :)
Yea, my idea isn't going to fly in the house. But I do have this blog. So here you go and look closely. Look at the detail work. Identify the innovative ways shelves are being used as. Skateboards shelves, cubies, modernista shelves, it's all here.
Shelving has taken an altogether different meaning in today's times. Take it all in and try something new in your own home.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted a dressing table.
I didn't want anything very fancy - just a small corner where
I could get ready and keep my jewels, lotions and fragrance.
I used a chair as a shelf for my wooden framed side-mirror.
