"Damn you, Ione Skye! Open shelving just ain't my jam!"? Well, now Elle Interiør is making me give open shelving another look because LOOK HOW AWESOME THIS IS. It's a shadow boxes mounted on a wall, all made of bamboo.
One of my gripes about open shelves was that I didn't have that many dishes and such, so invariably, my kitchen would look a bit...sparse. But this option is all about the mixing of dishes with vases and cookbooks à la art gallery, which is pretty nice. However, no matter how cool this looks, the idea of dusting that many shelves (and vases) makes me shudder. For what it's worth, though, this kitchen is pretty, pretty, PRETTY good.
