A huge built-in shelving unit is a book lover or collection displayer's dream. However, it doesn't take much to get carried away and create a storage nightmare. McAloon chooses a more sophisticated way to display the homeowners' miniature bottle collection: shadow boxes. To minimize the impact of such a large-scale shelving unit, she paints the wall behind the shelves a slightly darker shade of blue than the walls in the room. With these details, the shelving unit is put in its rightful place in the room.
