Welcome! Amidst the clutter of countless online interior design images, I have found smart, stylish, simple (and some not-so-simple) room designs. They were lovingly collected to admire,to inspire, and to share with you. I hope you find great inspiration and even greater enjoyment. xo Valerie

Kitchen Style: Open Shelving
Open-shelving PRO: It looks great and it's practical because it's easy to see what you have and forces you not to just shove things away into hiding.
Open-shelving CON: Dust =extra work, like dusting each item - and around the items - to get the shelf clean, rinsing off each item before use. Can look cluttered.
The pros and cons are even in my book, and the winner is always
put up as much open shelving as you can comfortably maintain.
If you have the self-discipline to keep the colors and items
as orderly as these then go for this pretty, stylish kitchen:
Here the discipline is far less rigid and
the look is an updated, smart, friendly look:
I absolutely LOVE this stove shelf for the kitchen:
Open shelving for a pretty collection of tea-time vessels:
Glass-fronted cabinets are another option... Have a great day! xo Valerie
