I am in love with this dining love.  We just recently moved a couple of glass doored bookcases from our office into our dining room.  It was meant to be a temporary fix to free up more space in our office but we ended up loving the way they looked so I think we are going to keep them.  Of course they aren't as remarkable as the beauties in this photo but they are still very nice.

Open storage can sometimes feel like more of a nightmare than a blessing because everything is always on display and needs to be styled in a way that is both functional and appealing to the eye.  One thing I've struggled with is linen storage, I've resorted to just stuffing everything in an empty cabinet where it can't be seen but I love the way they've displayed their pile of white linen napkins - right in the middle of everything else like they just belong there.  I'm definitely pulling inspiration from this pic when I style our shelves.
