It’s gloomy and cold outside… weather like this always makes me reach for the kettle to brew my favourite deli bought coffee. I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to coffee. Has to be high quality and freshly ground. No instant coffee allowed in my house! But I digress. Let’s get back to interiors. Today, I’m talking about open shelving in the kitchen. Kitchens are usually designed with function in mind first then aesthetics trail behind. Shelving can be a wonderful way of adding personality and warmth into the scheme. If you place your plates, bowls and utensils out on display, it instantly makes the kitchen feel lived in and more interesting. Coming from a more practical standpoint, if you put the least used items on the top shelves and items you use everyday on the bottom shelf they won’t get the chance to accumulate dust. Now time for that cup of coffee….
