Country cottage. French provincial. Industrial modern.
These are great kitchen design themes that evoke images of mom serenely looking out the window drying a dish, or a handsome gentleman sipping pinot while boiling hand-cut pasta, or the young couple preparing a candle-lit date night dinner for two. Spotless and sleek kitchens out of magazines are certainly enviable.
But - - let's. be. honest.
The kitchen is the heart of your home in all its messy, chaotic, spilled and splattered glory. Where the groceries are dropped before being put away. Where the mail inevitably piles up before sorting. Where the booboos are bandaged. They are where the Sunday morning breakfasts are whipped up and the holiday meals prepared and shared.
This most important room deserves a design that is both beautiful but most importantly livable!
In some upcoming posts we will feature fun and affordable ways of adding some style to your kitchen (kilim inspired runner for a pop of color? yes please; or rattan pendant lights for a casual coastal vibe? you got it.)
