Open Kitchen Shelving

I have been obsessing about open shelves for the past few days.  It all started with this picture that I found while searching apartments on Craigslist:

Something about it just looks so beautiful to me.  Like beautiful chaos?  I don’t know.  But I think it’s a great look.  Here are some others I love:

I would love to have everything at-hand like this.

I love the green and white color palate of this kitchen.  Also love the mix of dishes and food storage on the shelves.

I think this one is my favorite.  Love how bright this kitchen is and I love the pops of color that the dishes provide (recognize a lot of those from Anthro, too!).

I know open shelving would mean having to keep everything really organized, but I am a pretty organized person, so I don’t think that would be a problem.  Unfortunately, we’re renting at the moment and I wouldn’t feel right about taking the doors off the cabinets — the very few of them that we have!  I will have to do a kitchen tour at some point, but we have a very tiny kitchen at our place!

  1. I have open shelves at my house. I love them! When I moved into the house, there were heavy dark wood doors on all the cabinets. I removed the doors and painted everything white. Clean! Inspiring! And, of course, all my goodies are easy to reach. xoxoox
