Study her cook books, and you can master the art of French cuisine. Study her kitchen, and you can master the art of kitchen storage. When it came to her kitchen design, Julia Child had one goal in mind: functionality. Each pot, pan, utensil and spice had its place.
Now displayed as a historic artifact in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, Julia Child’s kitchen has become an icon for chefs around the world. Most memorable is Julia’s pegboard of copper pots and pans. In the museum photo below, the wire cutouts recall Julia’s astute method of tracing the outlines of each pot and pan for consistent storage.
Inspired by Julia Child’s prudent pegboard, we thought we’d share a few design solutions for storing pots and pans, keeping in mind both efficiency and aesthetics. These thoughtful storage solutions allow you to store cooking essentials where you use them most while also integrating them seamlessly into the overall design.
