Dealing with Quirky Spaces

One of the rooms that required a little more creativity in our new place was the bath adjacent to our bedroom. This bath, unlike the one on the other end of the apartment, included a 2nd door that opened to the common living areas. Not wanting to use this door, we had to get creative about how to block it. We also had to find solutions to having MUCH less storage than in our previous place.

On the common area side, we put a bookcase.

On the other side, I stacked wine crates that I stained and varnished years ago. These now serve as a place for extra linens, my pashminas, jewelry, perfume, and extra vases.

I also used an idea that I found on Martha Stewart, storing my pearls and earrings in small china dishes that I already had.

It’s not perfect, but I definitely prefer it to having two doors. I’m pretty happy with the rest of the room, as it has lots of French and seashell decor.
