My New Kitchen is finished!

About a year and a half ago I moved from my little charming cottage style home to a much larger, cookie cutter, new construction home. As a decorator this move was very difficult for me because it’s very hard to find charm and character in a newer home. And I had also put my own stamp on my smaller home and I just loved it!

Entryway Nook

IMG_0074For so many of my clients the entryway is a very important spot for them. It needs to be functional but also beautiful. Here is my entryway where I placed a storage bench for shoes and I added pillows for a relaxed, cozy look. Above the bench, I added a hanging bin for mail and magazines and a storage compartment for phones, keys and wallets. I added some photos so it wouldn’t look like a storage space but rather a cozy little nook. I also added a clock because we always like to know the time before we run out of the house. The key to good design for a space like this is to stagger all hanging items and have them all in neutral color tones. Give it a try!!

Tonight my husbands Aunt and Uncle are in town from Holland and I have cooked a nice meal for them(recipe to come). I am OBSESSED with anything jute so when I found these placemats I was stoked!! Did I just say stoked?moving on….I added my favorite glasses, good ole mason jars, and a simple pink napkin for added fun! I will be serving water in the milk jars. I believe that going that extra mile when entertaining really takes a dinner party to the next level and your guest will never forget the effort!
