I love using items to give a space character and bring it together! Since I especially love to spend time in the kitchen cooking and preparing food for my loved ones, I think it’s important to also put in a good deal of time and energy making my kitchen the space that I want to make those memories in. Here is a list of my favorite items that I love using to help decorate and elevate my kitchen.
For starters, chairs are an important aspect of any kitchen. The chairs you choose really help to build your kitchen’s personality. My favorite chairs to put in a kitchen are rattan or wicker-framed and weather-friendly (because then I know they’re also kid-friendly), like the Sunwashed Riviera counter stool, the Shore counter stool, and the Balboa side chair. Both are great options because you can pick the fabric type and design you want for the cushions, adding a little extra personality to your chairs.
I also love picking a good faucet and lighting to help me better understand the look I want in my kitchen. I love this classic Rohl Perrin and Rowe faucet with a matching side spray. Include this Darlena Lantern Pendant as well for a more modern, yet traditional look.
Of course, the everyday items you use in your kitchen act as decor and certainly help add to its character. I try to always choose beautiful items in lieu of the bland basics that can get lost in the background.
Simple items like a cutting board and knife can help elevate your space. That’s why I love this white and wood serving board and this set of white knives that are aesthetically enhancing and practical kitchen items. This marble salt dish paired with a brass spoon and this scalloped faux rattan casserole dish are also practical items that can be used as kitchen accents.
This cayman seagrass wrapped pitcher adds a bit of coastal charm and it’s become a staple in my kitchen along with these cobalt-colored stemless wine glasses which add some of my favorite blue hues. And I love displaying this Darla Champaign Bowl on the kitchen counter filled with my favorite fruits.
Lastly, play around with other patterns and colors by picking the right oven mitts and tea towels to fit your space. I love adding green and blue accents around my home, and picking a good set of beautiful oven mitts, or towels, like this blue country stripe tea towel, allows me the freedom to have fun with my kitchen decor by turning those everyday items into accents that help give my space a personality.
When updating your kitchen make sure to have fun! And, whether it be enjoying a Sunday brunch with friends or cooking dinner with your kids, make sure to create a space where you want to make your own beautiful memories with your loved ones.
