Open shelv­ing is eco­nom­i­cal and al­lows easy ac­cess, but home study para­pher­na­lia doesn’t of­ten make for a pretty dis­play. Jane had to be able to keep an eye on what her sons were do­ing at the com­puter but, with the room lo­cated at the top of the stairs, didn’t want mess on dis­play. A half-screen of slat­ted tim­ber of­fers a smart so­lu­tion. “Di­vid­ing the area like this means it does still feel like a sep­a­rate room,” says Jane. To help keep their books and school stuff un­der con­trol, each son has a bank of book­shelves (in Ge­orge Fethers tim­ber ve­neer in Nero), with a shelf in be­tween for the printer.
