An Organized Bunch

I don’t think there is anything better than a big bunch of dishes and kitchen bits and bobs all stacked together in some sort of unison to create a soothing look and distinct function. When my life feels a little chaotic I seek a little calm like this (which must be the case at the moment because I find these images most appealing). There is still a number of things taking up space but they are all in order & in their rightful little spot of a home. If you do go for this look, however, do opt for stacking and grouping similars otherwise it is utter clutter that will result.
Do you have any tips for organizing and styling in this fashion? Have you seen any great inspiration or images out there recently?

    Most of my dishes are behind closed cabinets and I use my glass front ones to display cookbooks and seasonal related items. I do love this look though….and perhaps someday in a different home, I go bare!

    Love all this organization! Open shelving and glass front cabinets never looked so good!

    The glass fronted or open cupboards are the best solution for neat and tidy I find! Its the ones with the doors on them that become messy in my house! KG

    I love this look – so organised but with so much character. I would love to do this kind of thing but I don't have a nice kitchen…we are hoping to renovate soon so I'm in the process of collecting images of kitchens I like. And I like what you posted!

    I love this look – I think the key is to have enough shelves to hold everything neatly, especially when items vary in size/shape so that it doesn't start to look messy. While I love the look of open shelves, it just isn't practical for me with dust etc (there are only 2 of us using all those dishes!) so glass doors are perfect :)

    I love the idea of this as well. It's says "organized" of course, but yet it's so warm and inviting that it exudes a comfortable, "yes, you can touch" environment. Great post! Hmm. Perhaps I should add glass to my cabinet fronts to make them more interesting…

    I go crazy for a well-organized kitchen where things are easy to find and use and return to their home. I love these inspirations you've shared. Can't wait to get into a home with a better kitchen. It makes all the difference!
