A Well-Occupied Wall

Short on cupboards? Get things out in the open. New York City prop stylist Erin Swift is a fan of displaying everyday dishes against a well-marked chalkboard wall.

Draw outlines of shapely pieces if you’re the artistic type, or just say it like it is, with words.

To buy: Studio Finishes chalkboard paint, $19 a quart, benjaminmoore.com for stores.
