Urban small spaces and even suburban larger homes, often need to find unique storage solutions. At this vacation condo, we kept family history and give it new life. With no room for more cabinets or china display, we used this unique pie safe that was used by client’s great grandmother as early at 1890 to cool delicious deserts. Seems only natural that a piece of furniture that once kept foods the family devoured, now holds the most treasured china that is used for special occasions.

Think outside the box for your storage needs.

This project was designed as an old fashion, yet elegant, pantry.  In consulting with the interior designer wicker baskets, once used for vegetable storage, are now used for bagged chips and snacks.  The wrap around pantry features glass inserted into wood shelves which give more light.  One lower corner features a rotating Lazy Suzan for easy access to the rear.

Organize food by categories.  Modular POP Canisters from The Container Store keep baking items and pastas fresh and make it easy to see when supplies are low.  Quattro Stagioni Jars  provide the “old fashion” look for nuts, candies, and beans.

Your pantry can have a complete new look by cleaning out all unused and out of date food.  Keep most needed items at eye level.  New containers will not only provide a “fresh” look, but keep foods fresh for your family.
