Since we banished the wall units, open shelving has become a popular solution for that extra bit of kitchen storage. Whilst it's a practical place to keep your tableware, being totally on view means it also has to be well styled.

Adding plants to your kitchen shelves is always a good idea. They help to soften a space which is made up of hard surfaces, aid noise control and filter the air!
Keep your colour palette simple to avoid the shelves looking fussy. If your monochrome look is feeling stark, add timber for warmth.
Vary the height of objects to create interest. Displaying small decorative items on top of stacked recipe books prevents them from looking lost.
Have fun with it! Your home should be a reflection of you, so display pieces that make you smile.
