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. The dark backdrop allows you to clearly (and cutely) indicate a home for each item, encouraging others (not you!) to help restock once the dishwasher is finished. 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.
