I'm kind of over wall cabinets, and thinking I won't rehang the ones I took down from our scary ass kitchen. The issue is, all the kitchens with open shelving that look dreamy belong to squeaky clean people who favor monochromatic kitchenware and or food.
That is not moi.
I am very messy (in a cluttery kind of way, not a germy kind of way so calm down). I also tend to purchase colored food. (shrug)
So mine would probably not look so pristine.
Although I will say that I have some gorgeous china which I use every day (yes even in my current construction site slash hovel) which will look nice out in the open.
This picture is of my friend's country house. I know, its redic.
But how great are these simple wooden shelves and brackets?
Here's another one from Apartment therapy. Nice.
Here's another with the same clean wooden brackets that I'm diggin.
Here are a couple nice pass-throughs that like.
here's the super simple clean version...
Three cutting boards? Aye aye aye.
And this one is in another friend's house (sorry red eyed party goers). This is the funky, architectural salvage pass through. I love love love it.
But you know, I can't have EVERYTHING be a feature...
So ultimately, I'll most likely keep it simple with casings that semi-match the doors and windows in the living room.
