Does your kitchen inspire you? Do you walk into your kitchen and feel like being creative? My kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in my house. Not only because I love to cook, but because I have some of my favorite decorations and accessories in there. First of all it is painted butter cream yellow, does it get any better? I have a little arm chair with this cool pillow my sister made out of a coffee bean bag.
I have special pictures of those I love and one of my favorite wall hangings displayed.
I also have this little dish I use for my scrub brush next to my sink. It is special because I found in an ally store with my husband in Italy.
They aren't much, and probably don't do anything for most people, but the point is- they inspire ME! I have lots of good memories in there. When I see that little armchair I remember all the friends and family members that sat there and the funny, deep, or random conversations we had. When I look at my kitchen, I smile. I want to be in there, and I feel inspired and welcomed to do so.
Your kitchen should do the same for you. Don't let it feel like a sterile workhouse. Add what is important to you. Go splurge on a cute apron that makes you feel like a sassy kitchen beast:
Or buy a cute dish towel that makes you smile, even if you did just burn your dinner. (I know you or I never do this, but I'm just talking to the other people who may ;) )
Maybe a new set of measuring spoons will brighten your cooking experience:
Whatever is your cup of tea- get it into your kitchen. Be inspired by your workspace, and have fun with the creation of your food! Enjoy!
