My kitchen reno is now complete (yay!) and it looks phenomenal. However, it needs some accessorizing to bring in the warmth that the other parts of my home exude. I read this fantastic post on Jennifer’s Blog about accessorizing kitchens. Some take away tips from it include:
1.) Don’t over-accessorize, crowded counters are never good design
2.) Lean some artwork against your back splash (don’t forget it needs to be something you can wipe down)
3.) Buy objects that are both beautiful and functional
4.) Use accessories that fit with the style of your kitchen (see below for tips!)
5.) Add pops of colour which coordinate with the colour scheme in the rest of your house
I love shopping on Etsy, partly to support artisans, and partly because it is too crazy going to the store with three children. I went searching for kitchen accessories and was able to find everything from soap pumps to lighting. I have put together three idea boards for kitchen accessories, one country, one modern, and one traditional. Don’t be surprised if you see some of the modern accessories brightening up my kitchen in an upcoming post on my kitchen (okay, might be a few weeks since I have to buy and ship them etc.).
