Design Thought for the Day

If you’ve been blessed with “plant shelves,” one of those fabulous architectural details all the rage with builders in the 1990’s, you may be tempted to put accessories junk up there.

Please fight this urge!  Not all shelves must be filled.  There is nothing worse than crappy vignettes of decorative plates and bottles and plastic ivy trailing down from “display ledges.”

Tell me what you think.  What are some other terrible architectural details you’ve had to work around?

  1. Shadow boxes and those boxed out “boxes” that hide the curtain rod and allow for items to “sit” on top…generally with scalloped edges and probably from the ’70s or ’80s.
