While the bright kelly green color on this kitchen island is definitely eye-catching, it's actually the storage idea that piqued my interest!

In an effort to let no space go to waste, a few commonly-used items are installed on the side of a kitchen island for easy access, including a tea towel bar, a paper towel bar, and a small basket for cutting boards and a rolling pin.

You usually find these items hung on the wall or backsplash, so this is a nice change of pace. They're a little more out of sight this way, but still easily accessible.
