i have an aversion to corner cabinets. you know, those awkward pentagonal units meant to keep two rectangular cases from running into each other where walls meet. something about putting a rectangular row of rectangular objects into a triangle just bothers me. (i.e. books into a corner cabinet. this aversion also explains why you won't see round shelving on this blog.) i always advise people to run bookcases into each other at corners as shown above. i came across this lovely london home a few days ago on remodelista. this study is simple and beautiful, and the whole house is worth staring at for hours.
