Are you one of those people who have a cupboard full of miss-matched coffee mugs? You know who you are. You just can’t pass up a pretty design or catchy phrase or one that commemorates a vacation spot. If they’re taking up too much room and you can’t bare to part with them, bring out the best ones for display. Extra kitchen counter space is usually hard to come by, so put them to work. Fill them up with forks and spoons, or plant herbs, store packets of sweetener or straws. Arrange them on the window sill or in the corner (it’s a wasted space anyway). Designer Victoria Pearson created is charming little kitchen display for House Beautiful.
