The building’s dimensions are simple yet very precise. "It is basically two boxes joined by a passage and a bathroom hanging off it," says Hughes. "It’s not a big house by any stretch of the imagination, but people think it is."
So why not hack built-ins instead? A few design tricks can turn simple floating shelves or cheap bookcases into stately furnishings fit for your most important collections. Plus, if you have to move, you can dismantle them in a snap. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
Pair shelves with a bigger piece. Have an empty nook that you`re unsure how to approach? Bring in a floating console and top it with a few minimalist floating shelves. Wedged in between two walls, the setup looks meant-to-be.
But what of the organizational system? Suppose I hadn`t known that Mutations was large and yellow, I could have spent an age looking for the thing. As it happens, I did spend a while looking through the various piles and shelves where it could have been hiding, only to come up empty.
