I can't imagine owning this many white dishes. And then storing them on open shelves where they would inevitably be covered in dust or grease from the nearby stove. I will have some open shelves, but they will be by the window and absolutely not by the stove. I think the reasons this picture jumped out at me were the white cabinets, the white subway tiles and the pops of red via the mixer and towels. Also the super fun chandelier.
