When storage containers will be in plain view, make efforts to get similar styles and colors (try to use no more than 3 colors and make sure they compliment each other) to not add visual clutter.
Keep like colors with like colors in little color coordinated storage families:

Take a peek at almost any Container Store Office advertisement, and that is exactly what you'll see as well.
The simple act of multiplying most any container produces instant eye appeal on open shelving:
