The Cottage: Bedroom & Studio

Collection by Laurel Ryan


The new place needs to be the best one yet. The afternoon light, unlike in the living room, does nothing to the walls.

High, Medium, & Low: The Best Sources for Wall Mounted Shelving

One of our favorite small space secrets — one of those little things that takes a space from good to great — is wall mounted shelving. It’s definitely a bigger commitment than a bookcase, but the advantages are manifold. Wall mounted shelving takes up less visual space, less actual space (because there’s no back, only the wall), and can be mounted over furniture and in the tiniest of tiny nooks.
