With summer upon us, it's prime time for pedal power. But what to do with that bike when you're not riding it? If you lack a storage room and you don't want to keep your bike locked up outdoors overnight, perhaps one of these indoor bike storage solutions is just what you need.
I already did one mood board last week, but I have tons of dream living rooms. If I had the time or the budget or the energy to decorate monthly, oh man would I ever. In reality I'm usually on my hands and knees at some strange basement estate sale looking for knick knacks someone stuffed behind their meat freezer. So this mythical universe (in which I get to fantasy shop at 1st Dibs!) is nothing short of miraculous.
The simple shapes and clean lines of mid-century stylish is a trend that's not giving up any time soon. If you love the look but don't want to buy vintage, Jeremiah Collection may be just what you're looking for…

But the apartment's defining feature is the expansive, wrap-around bookshelving, holding everything but the kitchen sink...
Warm wood and cold metal intersect in these industrial-style bookshelves, which can be super rustic or smooth and refined. Some are entirely new; others recovered from old factories. And others still fall somewhere in between, with some components that have been salvaged or recycled. Love them or hate them, these bookcases are cropping up everywhere.
We love this sweet idea from Project Little Smith. In need of a place to set things while nursing as well as a space for a growing library, this architect-turned-stay-at-home-mom decided to repurpose one of her husband's old skateboards. She ended up with a beautiful, functional piece that has special meaning to her family.
