“Nothing gives me quite the same sense of peace and fulfillment as the sight of a well-stocked pantry,” says graphic designer Martina Casonato. Read on for five storage idea to steal from her thoughtfully organized new old-fashioned kitchen.

The large custom-built island, topped with calacatta amber marble, features drawers with glass fronts, so you don’t have to rummage around for what you’re looking for.

A brass rail and S-hooks from deVOL keep a few utilitarian tools off the countertops.

Dry goods decanted into see-through jars keeps them fresher longer—and they’re prettier to look at than a whole bunch of cardboard boxes and plastic containers.

Martina designed the fluted French doors so that she can hide the pantry for a cleaner look when necessary.

Martina designed the island to have storage on one side and seating on the other.

“Budget-wise, we chose to play the long game and prioritize good finishes and materials over furniture and decoration,” adds Martina.
