Steal This Look: The Modern Farmhouse Pantry

September 24, 2019

I have a great pantry in the form of a sizable floor-to-ceiling cabinet with pullout shelving. It’s a huge upgrade from what we had in our old small apartment, and other than the fact that it doesn’t have an alarm that sounds whenever one of my kids returns a box of cereal or crackers without closing the top first, I’ve had no regrets about its design. But then I saw this simple, tidy, and serene (who knew a pantry could be serene?) walk-in larder and all of a sudden, what I have isn’t enough.

This well-ordered pantry was a finalist in Remodelista’s Considered Design Awards last year in the Best Kitchen Organization category. Its lucky owner is photographer and creative director Delbarr Moradi, and its designer is Megan Bachmann. Have a look.

Some people have a second fridge in the basement or garage. Moradi has one in her pantry—a much more accessible location—and keeps it stocked with beverages.

Open shelving means she can easily locate what she needs; her grains, pastas, and baking essentials are all stored in attractive airtight glass jars.

Like what you see? Here’s how to get the look of this modern farmhouse kitchen pantry.
