Pantry Perfection

This time of year is synonymous with fresh starts, clean slates and organization. With the very best intentions we push against the unraveling that happens over time and evitable disequilibrium. I find my mind is clear and content when organized. And take great pleasure in pursuing order and perusing others’ efforts. Sometimes much more of the later…

 

Quick Tips:

Keep Like with Like – Cans Together by Food Product, Glass Vessels and Bowls Together, Wood Platters and Cutting Boards Together, Paper Products Together

Decant from Original Packaging – Pastas, Loose Foods in Baskets, Snacks in Glass Jars, Raw Ingredients in Glass or Clear Push Top Containers

Spacing – Vary Shelves, Shelves for Cans 9-10 inches between Shelves 10-12 depth, Appliance and Bulk 16-18 between Shelves 18-24 depth, Plan for Deeper Ledge or Counter

 

Whether you are a storage phenom or a voyeur peeking into the pantry to see how other people really live. These are examples of going beyond the cupboard and creating smashing pantries.

KNOCKOUTS! Black Kitchen?

Oh yes. If these kitchens could travel they would be at Fashion Week. These powerful spaces are stunning. Making no apologies for their sleek silhouettes and striking stature. Black kitchens. This is happening.
