Stylish Small Storage: Covered Containers

Flour, sugar, coffee and more go great in a set of colorful storage jars lined up perfectly (or haphazardly) on a counter top in a cute kitchen. But bold and bright storage jars of different sizes and shapes look stupendous in a bathroom, in a home office, on a bookshelf, in a living room or even in an entryway.

What excitement would you feel each day if you got to reveal your compact goods every time you opened up a colorful jar in your home?
