For all loose items... photographs, papers, files, etc... put these items in some nice decorative containers. There are all kinds of magazine holders, boxes, baskets and file boxes that can be used to hold these loose items.
A sample of a modular shelf design being marketed comes in solid wood with dark espresso finish. It has narrow shelving units which project a clean and versatile look. The modular series consists of 2 shelf-narrow, 2-shelf wide and 3-shelf wide sizes with matching woven baskets with wire frames as accessories. The shelving has measurements of 13.5 inches wide by 11.2 inches deep by 55 inches high.
The corner shelf can also be a great place for a small television. You don't want to put a lot of weight on them, but a depending how it was mounted to the wall, some can handle up to 50 pounds. Screwing them directly onto the studs can dramatically increase the amount of weight they can bear. So be sure to follow all the manufacturers recommendations and limitations to avoid a disastrous situation.
