When I picture my dream home (which I often do), I spend a little time designing the bathrooms, decking out the bedroom in my favorite luxurious sheets, and planting an abundant garden in my head. But where I exert most of my imaginative energy? The kitchen, of course. And to get specific, I’m centering in on the pantry. As an obsessive home cook, I want to make sure my space puts all of my go-to ingredients at the ready and that I don’t have to spend forever hunting down my favorite snacks (because, cravings). That’s why I did a Pinterest deep-dive and rounded up my favorite pretty pantries that are giving me all the organized and highly-aestheticized vibes.

One of the best things about the years we spent working from Camille’s home was having access to her perfectly appointed pantry. An average workday provided me with many opportunities—assuming the coast was clear—to dash in and grab handfuls of chocolate chips, goldfish crackers, and all sorts of raw ingredients. These assorted treats were stored, of course, in matching mason jars.

Hopefully, Phoebe and Henry were never falsely accused of my crimes, as the chocolate chip supply slowly dwindled throughout the week. Now our team is all grown up with pantries of our own to keep stocked. While most of us will never reach Camille’s level of pantry feng shui, a little inspiration never hurts.

Scroll through for 12 of the prettiest pantry designs we found on Pinterest. (Sneak in while no one’s looking.)

    UNREAL! One can only dream of such organized and beautiful pantries but NOT for real life. Nope, never going to last.

    What happened? My comments disappeared?
    Any way….beautiful pantries which come out of freshly organized teams but will NOT last in real live people’s homes.
