It was full of toys, cushions of many colors and had wasted corners. With a little order and good storage ideas, the hall looks like another. "This room was a mess! The owners have two young children who had turned the room into his playground. With magazines and books in the middle, and colorful cushions that did not match, he had a look something left. I started to change the sofa, to open the room to the rest of the house, and took advantage of the space under the window to put a bank to store the toys when not in use. I sang all the cushions in beiges and ochres and ... voila !: the room looks like another. Or not?".

A new library with shelves

The key to winning storage has been seize the bow by the window to place shelves as go storing magazines, books and decorative elements ...

4 light shelves

They are 25 cm deep and 10 cm thick. As all shelves are at the same distance (30 cm are between them), give a sense of order. And painted the same color as the wall, they are lighter.

Attractive and order

The key is not to put all the books or frames together. By combining different elements in each shelf, the library looks more attractive.

Ideas for storing: baskets, boxes and a trunk

We have used boxes to group small items that were on the table, as the controls.

Baskets for magazines

The table had a lower shelf where we placed two baskets of fiber: here we guardardo magazines and pieces of more use.

A trunk to store

Under the window we have incorporated a bank that serves to store toys and an extra seat. We've put a mat to make it more comfortable.
