I am a huge fan of Amanda Lindroth's Island Trays - I have five. They are perfect for corralling items and having them look purposeful and organized. BTW, the Amanda Lindroth Tag Sale is about to end (additional 25% off shown in cart) with some great options for the kitchen.

And lastly, paint the ceiling haint blue - my favorite is Farrow & Ball's Borrowed Light. You will feel like you are cooking in the clouds.
