A very big thank you to Mansion Global for letting us share with them why we often opt for open shelving! To read the full article, visit here.
Open shelving offers so many opportunities that are not only functional, but also personal. It’s a chance to show off the things that are really important to your family and give the people that come into your home a glimpse into who you are. Whether that means displaying family heirlooms, your grandmother’s china, or some of your favorite succulents, open shelving provides that space to express who you are and the things that are important to you.
I love convincing clients to opt for open shelving, especially in the kitchen. It really does open the space up and give a glimpse into what they’re passionate about.
Are the heirlooms on display, and what’s the story behind them? Do they have a beautiful wine glass collection, and love to entertain? Are the mugs all lined up perfectly, right where these coffee connoisseurs can easily grab them for their daily cup? No matter what they have displayed, there’s always a story behind the items, and I think that’s just a really special way to get a glimpse into the home and the family who lives there.
