What can I say other than what I am sure others have said? I love, love, love your blog! It’s my favorite of all. I somehow found it a few weeks ago and have been reading it nightly since that time. I have worked my way through the archives and have enjoyed my evenings reading (well, after my two kids are in bed!). I’m hoping you can help me style my kitchen shelves. I am clueless as to what to put up there to the point that I regret even having them. Initially, they were installed for use as a kitchen office but for some reason that idea has fallen out of favor with my husband and myself. They have since become a place for junk (I have actually cleaned them up for the pic!!). What can I put up there that is practical (I’m not one for trinkets) and looks good? I don’t have any dishes that are interesting enough to place there and even if I did, it would probably look like a cluttered mess!!! I have attempted to buy some baskets and vases but It always looks off. Help!!
Thanks in advance,
I will tell you exactly what I would do. I love your glass tile by the way- it looks great- as does your color pallet. Your look is too contemporary for baskets. I would keep it clean with white bowls- platters, and pitchers, serving pieces and dishes. Start shopping- find one here- one there- not matching- but all solid white. Country Living was nice enough to have a great picture that illustrated exactly what I had in mind. Bowls are always practical serving pieces- and since we are not matching them- you can get them as you go- spreading out the expense.
It will look beautiful! Also look at the shelves in the green kitchen in this post. It is a very similar idea.
