I always look forward to Spring. The seasonal transformation from gloomy to sunshine, the smell after rain, birds chirping, fresh blooms, walks outside, re-potting my plants, the list goes on. When it comes to decorating I treat my Kitchen like a workshop and give myself freedom to frequently change the layout of the open shelves. This gives me a space to display the eclectic mix of objects and collectibles I've accumulated. I change them seasonally and Spring happens to be one of my favorite seasons to incorporate into my home. A couple weeks ago on one of my weekly stops to the goodwill I came across a pair of vintage water color illustrations of France. Instantly fell in love and wanted to style them in my home. The fresh bright coral pink border stood out to me, they became the focal point. Keeping both art and memories intact of last summer when my husband & I traveled to the South of France. I try not to buy anything new for the shelves unless it's a absolute must! Most of the time I just move pieces around and craft new fresh ideas into our Kitchen seasonly. Occasionally buy a new plant. Hope you enjoy the details.
Creating a nice stress free place for maximum productivity is the ultimate goal. I want buyers to feel inspired, calm, and focused when they walk in.
Here are some snapshots of inspiring ideas to style your Kitchen open shelves. I absolutely love adding and re-arranging accessories seasonlly, or more like weekly. I can't help it! These thick dark brown floating shelves made with reclaimed wood add warmth and contrast against the white tile backsplash. They are absoultely probably one of my favorite features in my home and I can tell ya they get used a lot!
Staging a bathroom is probably one of my favorites to do! Especially when working with a clean white space. You don't need a lot of items with just a few eclectic pieces you can turn a cold bathroom into a cozy space.
