Why we love this pic: This space nails the hard-to-find balance between showcasing plenty of personality and maintaining a sense of organization. Thanks to the open shelving's artful display, we get a strong sense of the dweller's eclectic tastes without sacrificing square footage. Meanwhile, minimal furniture featuring subdued neutral hues rounds out the look by bringing soft, grounding vibes to the playful shelves overhead.

The takeaway: Open shelving is a great way to showcase your personality without cluttering up your space.
