A Brilliant Bento Box-Inspired Design

Friday, November 05, 2010


I didn't get to the newspaper until late last night, as I was on a shoot all day. What a treat it was when I finally dug in! I loved the bento box-inspired apartment featured in the Home section. It made me feel inspired to get serious about organizing our storage: If a family of four can fit so stylishly into 1,300 square feet, then the boyfriend and I can certainly figure out a better way to organize our belongs in our 600 square feet. The platform bed that disappears during the day was especially interesting (above and below).


I couldn't help but smile at this colorful and clever solution for storing toilet paper in the girls' bathroom. You could easily make something similar with plywood or MDF.

The orange kitchen cabinet interiors are such a great surprise and a welcome burst of color in the mostly neutral apartment.

I liked it too! I would have liked to see more of the "storage" solutions--closets, etc. I also like some of Martha's storage ideas, including a bench and some colorful boxes--saw them in a Home Depot Ad and may go take a look.
