The home`s Canadian cedar cladding and aluminium joinery is low-maintenance, and designed to weather gently over time. The natural finish blends well with the surrounding garden, with its sculptural, desert plants. “We face south-west, so the weather comes straight at us, and the wind is loaded with salt,” says Hughes. “Fortunately, the plants we liked don’t give a hoot about the wind.”
Built-in bookshelves, with their visual heft and custom touches, are the ultimate luxury for the organizing-obsessed—especially if you`re renting and can only dream of such things. However, even if you do own your own place, they can often be prohibitively expensive to build. (And then there`s the matter of deciding where they should go . . . forever.)
We`ve organized our bookshelf by color for some time here at Dwell. And to be fair, it looks great. As visitors pass the design wall, the current issue of the magazine tacked up in its unbound state, they`re met with a rack of chromatic harmony. Hell, we even put a picture of the shelf in the March 08 issue of the magazine.
