Update: Julia Child's Kitchen

pans hanging on the wall in Julia Child's kitchen

I've mentioned before that Julia Child used pegboard to hang her pots and pans. I've just found out that the Smithsonian has pictures of their re-creation of her kitchen, where you can see just how she did that.

While I appreciate the usefulness of having everything within reach, I find it stressful to have my environment so visually cluttered. I like lots of empty surfaces and nothing on countertops. I would rather take things out and put them away everyday or even several times a day rather than look at them all the time.

Anonymous: Thanks for writing! Your comment emphasizes something I tell people all the time - each person needs his or her own organizing system. Some people love having things out where they can see them; others (like you) want everything put away to create a calmer look.

Personally, I'm somewhere in between you and Julia Child!
