Problem Areas: The Landing Strip

December 11, 2009

Check out the entry now.

You may have spotted it in the tour of the dining room. It’s the first of what I previously called our “problem areas,” but they are, as Mrs. Limestone calls her box room, my secret shame. Well, not so secret any more.

First up is our landing strip, a term I borrow from Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan’s Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure. This glass-top, silver-painted oak base holds umbrellas, change, sunglasses, planners, maps, keys, and other crap that really ought to have a proper home elsewhere.

The most relaxing, freeing landing strip I can imagine is something super simple, like this landing strip inspiration from Apartment Therapy. But there’s just no way. A tabletop surface could work for us–we had a smaller one at our last apartment, though it overflowed onto a bookshelf for piles of mail–but the shoes, THE SHOES! We really like having a few pair of shoes each by the door.

And that’s why I want a big, fabulous credenza, where I can stuff the necessities and close the doors to hide it all.
