I love the idea of open shelving. If it's styled. No Cheerios and Frosted flakes and random canned goods just hanging out. It has to look cool and organized with straight rows and awesome baskets.
Aren't these all so pretty? And organized? And orderly? It makes this Virgo very happy to see these beautiful displays. Open shelving is a great way to show off your collectibles or your grandmothers china that you love.
I see so many beautiful examples of open shelving that I hope one day to do a little bit of that in my own space.
