Ideas for small spaces: Custom bookshelves + dark walls: 'Iron Mountain' by Benjamin Moore

Blogged about at


Architect Jeffery Povero maximized space in his 860-square-foot New York apartment with architectural custom shelving, which provides neatly efficient storage. He also used opposing paint colors to make the space seem larger: Benjamin Moore’s Iron Mountain (on walls) and white (in recesses) help the dark color dematerialize at the edges.
