What's Your Style Series | Our Kitchen & Giveaway

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

So glad you're joining us for round two of  What's Your Style Series, hosted by Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof & Jamie from So Much Better With Age.  If your coming over from Shabby Love, then welcome!  Like I shared in part one: living room edition, our approach to style is more of a mantra:
Simple, Vintage, Antique, Design.
And when it comes to the kitchen it's no different.

SIMPLE
The addition of metro shelving has helped drastically with the overall function of our kitchen.  By keeping things within reach, meals and entertaining are a cinch while also providing additional storage.
Organization is key.  Drawer liners, organized cabinets & under sink storage are a couple ways we keep our kitchen in order.

VINTAGE
It wouldn't be our home without the use of vintage items and our kitchen is home to the hands-down most used item in our household ~ our silverware!  This silver-plate flatware started as a small collection when I was a little girl, then graced the tables at our wedding and now is part of our daily life in our home.  

ANTIQUE
Wicker Demijohns are one of my favorites!  They add texture and warmth to a space and also make great statement pieces in the kitchen. 

DESIGN
Our kitchen makeover is still a work in progress ~ please forgive some of the Christmas pics as our kitchen is currently a construction zone once again!  When it came to the design of our space we wanted a farmhouse-bistro feel.  Well to be completely honest, in the beginning we wanted it to feel bigger, brighter, and cleaner.  After all this is what it looked like a few weeks after moving in:
What can I say?!  We saw potential :)
After refinishing the cabinets...adding new counter top, sink, lighting and appliances...taking down the ceiling...adding a new ceiling...taking up the floors...adding wood floors...priming & painting our kitchen is almost finished.

  6. I have these same shelves in my garage. I've been thinking of moving them into my son's room, but wasn't sure about them being "indoor" shelves. You may have just convinced me otherwise.......they look fabulous in your kitchen!! Thanks for sharing!!
