I've been facing a design conundrum in my rental kitchen for quite some time. We have a counter in front of our brick wall, but the counter is atop some simple open shelving. It's nothing to look at, but we've done our best with pretty storage containers. Although lately, I've felt tempted to find ways to hide our open storage, which is why I'm considering adding fabric.
I definitely had visions of gingham skirted cabinets and dainty florals that would look at home in a country kitchen, but not my Brooklyn kitchen. That's until I did some digging and found these enviable cottage kitchen examples. Now, I just might be convinced to skirt my open shelves.
