1. Declutter your countertops.
2. Paint Color
Our rustic, Mexican tiles are very appealing and they warm up our space. It has become such a beautiful color contrast and balance between our black and white kitchen. It all works great and our kitchen is very bright and inviting, I love spending time there- and good thing too because it sits front and center in our home. So, select wall paint and cabinet colors that evoke joy and countertops materials that style that help you feel good.
3. Zen & Purposeful Decor
Finally, it is time to add things to your kitchen. Remembering the rules: that less is more, we need blank space to allow our eyes to rest & that color choices matter; its time to bring in your favorite items. Think of one to two decor items that bring you peace, bring functionality to the space or that is beautiful to look at. I will give you a great example, using what I have in my kitchen. I brought in a dark gray vase and added some blooms- the color is a welcome contrast in my kitchen space. Another thing that I brought in was a sewing machine drawer ( that right and old school Singer Sewing machine drawer), my grandmother used to sew a lot, its probably one of my most vivid memories of her. So when I found this Singer sewing machine wood drawer I knew that I needed it in my kitchen. I use it to hold all of my cutting boards. It serves two functions: it organizes my space and it brings me peace & joyful memories.
Last but not least is out marble fruit bowl. White marble bowls that I found in William Sonoma, they are gorgeous and very functional. There’s not a lot of other things in my countertops. I do have our espresso machine..but that one will soon have a place of its own.
