6 Wall-Mounted Storage Ideas to Steal from the Jennings Hotel

Kitchen of the Week Jennings Hotel Photograph by Greg Hennes

When we first wrote about The Jennings, a boutique hotel in rural Joseph, Oregon, there were only five rooms that were guest-ready. Checking in a year and a half later, we’re happy to report that owner Greg Hennes has nearly doubled that number to nine. Each room has been rigorously edited and stylishly decorated, but what is particularly noteworthy to us this time around are all the smart small-space storage ideas.

Instead of hampering the rooms with clunky storage pieces, many of them feature wall-mounted organizational solutions. Here are a few especially chic ideas:

1. Wrap the room with a peg rail.

2. Lose the nightstand.

3. Use a coat rack that’s pretty whether empty or filled.

4. Go high with the night lights.

5. Choose open shelves.

6. Consider what lies beneath.
