Padma Lakshmi’s open shelves are storage and decor in one |

Open shelving is a popular fixture in spaces like the living room, where we often choose to display precious objects and memorabilia. On the rise, however, is open shelving in the kitchen, making for a storage solution that also allows for easy access and display.

Cooking aficionado and creator/host of Taste the Nation Padma Lakshmi utilizes open storage in her own kitchen, keeping her pots and pans within reach on her red-painted shelves. In a video posted to her Instagram page, we can see a variety of colored glassware, stacked dishes, and even a couple of plants acting as decor.
