A whitewashed scheme means the opportunity to bring in color in the form of your culinary accessories. Even if your dishes tend to skew towards the more

monochromatic palette

splurge on a select few that’ll brighten the bunch up.

We’re swooning over this dreamy shade of pink, ingeniously reserved for the otherwise vintage-esque cupboard in Justina Blakeney’s colorful home.

Counterbalance a linear backdrop with healthy pops of color, organic textures, and a roughly monochromatic set of dinnerware. When it comes to storing the dishware, don’t be afraid to layer on for an added element of depth.

We’re taking major style cues from Elsie Larson’s colorful cup display! We’re seeing plenty of flea market excursions in our immediate future.

A streamlined shelving unit with glass doors is ideal for showing off that extensive china and ceramic collection you’ve so painstakingly garnered throughout the years.

Designer Kara Rosenlund suggests “adding textural, grown-up details to an otherwise all-white kitchen to go from functional to fabulous.” This scene certainly does the trick.

Utilize basic wooden shelves to showcase handcrafted ceramics that come in vibrant patterns and colorways.

If you’re more inclined to keep your cups and plates hidden within the cabinetry, use

open shelving

to display everything from spices to art, much like this spot in Jenny Komenda’s home.

Consider this the elevated version of a kitchen cart. This powder-coated piece features a subtle hint of color and makes for quite the ideal vessel for storing everything from delicate ceramics to serving plates and more!

A colorful selection of dinnerware means you’re clear to indulge in a whitewashed space that will essentially double as a blank canvas. See more of this fearlessly fun home here!

There’s something so effortlessly chic about a

paint paired with a lustrous copper finish. This rustic kitchen is simply proof.

Bring in a streamlined shelf that works double duty to help store your most used essentials close-at-hand, without taking up too much of your counterspace.
