For many of us, 2017 was a doozy, but we here at Brit + Co are ready to hit refresh in 2018! Follow our Hit Refresh series through January for new ideas, hacks, and, skills that will help you achieve (and maintain!) those New Year’s resolutions.

While we love minimalistic design, some of our stylish bits and pieces are too pretty to toss, let alone keep hidden. Instead, we’re head over heels in love with a little healthy clutter via artfully displayed servingware, potted plants, and knickknacks on open shelving. The trend is still going strong all over Instagram and is one of the best ways to organize your life and keep every room in your home looking just right. Scroll on for the best open shelving inspo from these Insta style makers.
