12 More Options for Colorful Storage

Want some bright colors to enliven your home? My last post on colorful storage was quite popular - and since I've since found more interesting options, it's time for an update.

1. Let's start in Melbourne, Australia this time, with one of the many delightful pieces shown on the Wilkens and Kent web site. For a few more quick peeks, look here or here.

2. Moving over to the U.K., this pink chest of drawers is sold by Graham and Green.

3. Staying in the U.K., this sky blue bookcase comes from Zenzu.

4. You might think a company called New England Lifestyle was based in the U.S. - but they're in West Sussex, U.K. They call this the Blue New Hampshire Bookcase. Update on Jan. 17, 2010: Now there's just the New Hampshire Bookcase - and it's white.

5. Heading over to Switzerland, we find these very cool alphabet storage pieces. [via Apartment Therapy]. The web site is in German, but it's reasonably easy to navigate even for someone who speaks no German, and a translating tool will help out when you need it. There are multiple options for each letter, with either a front door (with shelves or drawers) or an open back (with shelves) to provide storage.

6. Coming over to the U.S., red egg has some lovely pieces. They don't sell to the public, but you can find their buffet (shown above) and bookcase at Design for Real Living. Update on Jan. 17, 2010: Design for Real Living no longer has these products, but you can see them at Cottage & Bungalow.

7. If you're looking for red, big pagoda has a few options.

10. This cabinet is made from 100-year-old barn boards! See the Barn Board Treasures web site for more pictures of this piece, and to see the other types of furniture they make. Update on Jan. 17, 2010: Sadly, this company seems to have disappeared.

11. Damian Velasquez makes his pieces from steel and wood.
