Now seems like the best time to talk about styling your home with things you already have, seeing how we’re all spending more time at home then we ever planned to. Let’s find ways to love where we live a little bit more each day. What better place to start a refresh then the heart of your home. To get you started here’s our quick weekend (or midweek, now) update for your kitchen! From there let’s talk about my tips on how to style a kitchen with what you already have.
I love to layer in dishes that I love. They work well on shelves or in corners on your counter. If you are working with open shelving start with the dinnerware that you use all the time. You want your open shelving to have items that rotate in and out of it to prevent dust from gathering. Work in odd numbers when building stacks. I always find this is an easy way to make your collection feel purposeful.
Layering glassware into shelves and on the counter especially if using glass is a great way to add texture and a light reflecting element to the space. I love keeping glassware together in sets to make a small collection for your eye to rest or using one piece at a time on the counter to create a set of 3 collections.
These just might be my favorite things to layer into any kitchen space. The added wood texture brings so much natural warmth to any counter space. It is the perfect backdrop to create a vignette in front of.
Use your big bowls to display fruit inside for color or take up space on the shelf. Any size shape and color serving bowl help add dimension to your kitchen styling. I love stacking books and adding serving pieces on top of them to provide extra height!
Your table linens are another great way to add not only color but texture into your space. Add them inside bowls or draped around a vignette like a blanket, keeping everything nice and cozy. I hang mine on the dishwasher so we always have something to dry our hands on!
You guys plants make everyone happy. Add some plants into the heart of your home. We’ve got a full list of easy to maintain kitchen plants for you. Or you can always add some really nice faux greenery to any space.
Cookbooks are the perfect way to bring height and color into a kitchen space. I love using vintage cookbooks for looks and some of my everyday favorites for easy access!
