Spring Kitchen

 

The crisp sunny weather in Seattle has me feeling energized in every way possible, but especially around the house. I’ve been donating, rearranging, and adding foraged florals and greenery to our kitchen.

I’ve created a round-up of ways you too, can freshen and brighten up your kitchen for the beautiful spring season.

1 — Update your pots with ones that add texture. This pot from McGee & Co adds a beautiful light texture, creating a romantic and airy vibe to your space. Don’t have a green thumb? Faux plants are a great option.

2 — Rearrange existing artwork or add fresh new ones. These already framed dried greenery and florals are a simple and beautiful way to add to your kitchen, without any garden maintenance. Try hanging this on the wall OR if you don’t have space to hang, arrange two that overlap one another on your kitchen counter, leaning up against your backsplash.

3 — Opt for a unique “bread bowl” for your daily fruits and vegetables!

4 — If you have open shelves to show off your plates and bowls or not … Finding ceramics that bring you joy is key. I recently came across the stunning work of Marion Graux and can’t wait to add a few blush plates to our collection.

5 — An inexpensive way to elevate your kitchen is replacing the hardware. These black classic cup cabinet pulls will make any kitchen look luxurious and sophisticated.

6 — Who says pillows are only for your sofa or bed? Add a pop of color to your kitchen island stools or chairs. It adds extra comfort when you enjoy that sunny spring morning coffee, too! These specific ones from Wayfair are on sale! Bonus.

7 — A fresh coat of paint will make your kitchen look brand new. Paint your cabinets a fresh new color if they’re wood or paint your back door and trim a complementary color to match your walls. Balboa Mist from Benjamin Moore is a current favorite of mine — a mix of warmth and classic white.

8 — Lastly, update your sink mat or kitchen runner with a light and neutral one (that will still hide the messes). Opt for one like this that is PET (polyethylene terephthalate), that is 100% recyclable and easy to clean.

Happy spring!!
