A simple idea for countertop styling that looks good and is functional, too: Decorate your kitchen with fruits and vegetables. And try keep things simple. Put a bunch of fresh fruits in a crystal container and display them on your kitchen countertop. A few fresh lemons in a glass jar would look lovely by themselves.
