More and more people are embracing and showcasing their every day bits and using it as added detail to their space. There are lots of great ways of styling your shelves to avoid that cluttered feeling in a room, so take note.

1. One colour in the kitchen

So you’ve chosen to go with open shelves in the kitchen instead of cabinets, but it doesn’t mean everyones going to see all your burnt-bottomed pots and pans. Clear out your mix-matched dished and run with one colour (we love a crisp white) to stack and display neatly.
