Decorating and Inspiration for Open Shelves

Open shelves are amazing for a few different reasons. They are a great way to keep your countertops clear while still including decor in your space. They can be practical for providing extra storage. And let’s face it, they are just too cute to be hidden. Take a look at some of my favorite open shelves for various rooms and styles.
