Designated clutter zone. Having a storage space just off the kitchen of this home helps prevent stuff from piling up on the dining table. Pegs, buckets, and colored bins help keep this mud room organized. The shelves were an easy DIY project using salvaged bleachers.

Stair savvy. Staircase walls are notoriously difficult to deal with: If you hang photos, how do you line them up? If you paint the wall, does the color look equally good on both levels? Shelves make it easier—and create extra storage space. Special treatment, a cherry red bookshelf is like a shot of energy in this traditional home. The strong color acts like a frame for its contents, so give them some extra love with interesting bookends and small houseplants.
