Gwyneth Paltrow provides the ultimate lifestyle inspiration. The Goop founder and actress prioritizes wellness in all things, and the organization of her home is no exception.

The pantry idea in Gwyneth Paltrow's Hamptons home, put together by The Home Edit, is a work of art. Paltrow's all-white shelves are filled with snacks in wicker baskets, clear jars with grains, and rows of bottled beverages. Open side baskets on the top shelf provide backstock space for lesser-used snacks.

Suzanne Roynon, interiors therapist says: 'The Home Edit have inspired countless kitchen transformations and around the world, we’ve seen cupboards and pantries upgraded from a jumble of packets and boxes to streamlined, eminently usable spaces thanks to the clever storage solutions on offer. In this recent post displaying Gwyneth Paltrow’s pantry organization in her Hampton’s Home, the team has worked with Gwyneth’s pared-back, clean, natural, and minimalist style in their choice of white shelves and matching accessories.'

Most notably, Paltrow's home uses a brilliant home organizing tip to lighten and brighten the room: white paint. Roynon states, 'Using white products will automatically brighten up the inside of cupboards by disguising the multitude of packaging colors which can look somewhat chaotic. It’s easy to take down the box and select exactly what you need rather than pulling individual items off a shelf. If being able to see what’s in a box is more important than visual appearance, you’ll also find a wide range of clear plastic products, or those, like Gwyneth’s, made of more natural, ecologically sound, materials.'

Furthermore, Gwyneth's team at The Home Edit has expertly chosen the perfect containers for food storage. 'In terms of practicality, the glass jars are environmentally friendly and reusable, and that’s definitely a theme with this design, ' Roynon tells Homes & Gardens. She continues, 'The team has left space at either end of the shelf for the jars at the front to be moved across to access the ones at the rear. It’s these little touches that make the space usable because no one wants to complicate life by unloading a shelf to find the right ingredient mid-way through baking.'

She adds, 'Up on the top shelf, the open ‘Tosca’ baskets have been used to contain packets, perhaps for easily available back-stock. They are perfect while the packaging is unopened but won’t contain rice or lentil spillages, so bear this in mind if you choose them for your home. The white wicker baskets have a detachable, washable lining, which is great news because, inevitably, debris will drop into them from stored items or the shelves above. Similar baskets are widely available across the USA and Europe.'

However, what's just as important as what is there in Paltrow's walk-in pantry is what's not there. Roynon says: 'What really makes this pantry stand out is the amount of empty space. Nothing is crammed in, and the shelves provide abundant opportunities for fresh air to circulate around the storage options. Gwyneth is known to follow Feng Shui principles for her home, and this room is no exception.'
