Clever Storage

My Connecticut Country House was built in 1767, and is very short on closets. So for storage needs, it has to be practical and aesthetically pleasing! My go-to’s: baskets and wooden boxes. Stacking them covertly under a side table, or making them a focal point, the materials, textures, and colors need to work seamlessly in their surroundings. Versatility and scale is key.
