Using Vertical Space: Patricia's "Way Up High" Storage Solution

I'm inspired by Patricia's House Tour — she downsized her living quarters, managing to fit all her stuff into her new space without making it feel cluttered or crowded. How'd she do it? She found unique storage solutions that took advantage of unused vertical space…

Patricia installed shelves that march high up above windows and doorways to hold her collection of books. While it may not be the most convenient place to store those tomes you use every day, most books in a large collection are only occasionally used. Pulling out a ladder for those times is certainly doable. Patricia's solution reminds me of Laure's bookshelf in the rafters solution.
