Lay­er­ing: Lay­er­ing with a sleek mir­ror lean­ing slightly into the art­work adds per­spec­tive. A mir­ror is a clever way to bring the out­side in when po­si­tioned cor­rectly, or to sim­ply open up space. In a slick condo, the lay­er­ing ef­fect of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to bring more without adding too much clut­ter. Stack­ing: Dec­o­rat­ing with in­ter­est-based books lets you re­veal your pas­sions pas­sively through this sub­tle tech­nique. Pay at­ten­tion to size and se­quence to avoid the look of piled-up books. The con­cept is dis­play, not stor­age, but the idea does of­fer a clever stor­age so­lu­tion for a book col­lec­tor liv­ing in a smaller space.
