These Open Shelf Kitchen Designs Will Forever Silence Your Inner Hoarder

Can we be honest? Upper cabinets are the giant tombstones in a kitchen graveyard filled with unused dishes, useless appliances, and forgotten cans of food you never liked in the first place. Alright, I’m being dramatic, but I used to always find myself fishing around in those upper cabinets and wading through a bunch of stuff that I should’ve thrown away, but instead tucked away. I took the open shelf plunge over ten years ago, and it totally changed the way I relate to kitchens, grocery shopping, and cooking. Open shelves brighten up an otherwise dark kitchen. You can actually see what you use and use what you see. Nothing more. Nothing less. Still not convinced that open shelves are life? Check out these kitchens and prepare to change your mind!

Julianne Hough and interior designer Jake Arnold have created a cozy and serene home that’s almost as pretty as the owner. A calm palette with unexpected pops of color are the backdrop of beautifully curated pieces. Natural linen, raw wood, soft hints of yellows, blues, and greens, rounded out by lovely garden views create a calm and inviting aesthetic. The design manages to be sophisticated without looking staged and sterile. And that bathroom!!! I’m totally design-stalking this place right now. Check it out and get inspired too!

Maximalism Decor Inspiration: More is More

First off, it’s not hoarding if you have cool s***. Amiright?! I knew that sooner or later, I was going to have to face the fact that I’m not all that good at minimalism. I have a lot of stuff and I’ve run out of creative ways to store things out of sight. But why am I hiding it? This isn’t a hoard, this is a curated collection. I’m totally inspired by this maximalism design trend. Check out these pics so that you can be inspired too!

I just love it! Instead of blank walls and shelves these rooms are filled with art frames and books and everything else that shows the personality of the homeowner. All that without feeling cluttered. The things that we collect tell a story. Shouldn’t that story be on full display to make our house feel more like a home?
