Cheers for a recycling setup that's not also an eyesore! Aspiring interior designer Sofia built this custom kitchen recycling station herself using large baskets and (what appear to be) chalkboard labels. The wicker looks so much better than plastic, and the baskets' uniform size really pulls it all together.

It even looks good from all the way down at the other end of the hallway! That's especially important when you can glimpse the kitchen from other areas of the apartment. Imagine how this would look if there were blue plastic buckets there instead, or a row of mismatched, rumpled bags. Not nearly as appealing, huh?
