When Martina Casonato decided to remodel her London kitchen last year, she started an Instagram account to document the process. She called it @thevenetianpantry, an apt name that hinted at the Italian-born graphic designer’s vision: “to create a mix between our favorite East London restaurants and an old Italian grandma’s kitchen.”
And then, there’s the pantry: “Nothing gives me quite the same sense of peace and fulfillment as the sight of a well-stocked pantry,” she says. “For many people, a big American-style fridge is the number one priority in the kitchen. I was more than happy to compromise on the size of ours (which is a fairly modest integrated model, tucked away in a corner) in order to have the pantry of my dreams. It is truly my pride and joy and my happy place.”
Below, five storage idea to steal from her thoughtfully organized new old-fashioned kitchen. (For the whole house tour, go to A Graphic Designer’s Redone Victorian, Where the Pantry Takes Center Stage.)
