5 Simple Ways To Bring Your Kitchen To Life
In need of a kitchen refresh?
As we transition our spaces welcoming each season, we consider ways to refresh each vignette and breathe new life into our surroundings.
In the kitchen, we rely on streamlined, functional pieces to elevate our everyday experiences and create an energized environment.
From designer-detailed serveware to textural vases overflowing with greenery, simple styling elements can instantly update the heart of your home.
Here are five fool-proof ways to bring your kitchen to life:
No. 1: Switch up your greenery
Experimenting with greenery is one of our favorite ways to set the scene or shift the mood in a space. In the kitchen, stems and plants lend an organic element to utilitarian pieces, contrasting sharp cabinetry and appliance lines.
We love the sculptural feeling that long shapely branches bring to a kitchen island, the hue that fresh green stems add to a dining table, or the sense of life that fresh florals evoke styled near prep-areas.
Styling tip: Depending on the weather where you are, taking your clippers on a walk and foraging an interesting branch or stem to place in your favorite vase can result in the best outcome.
No. 2: Elevate your storage pieces.
Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the most significant difference. We subscribe to the idea that if it’s something you use every day, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be beautiful. Take, for example, a crock and some servers; they can easily be switched out and add a lot of dimension styled next to your stovetop.
No, 3: Dress up your fruit
We’re all about displaying fruits on the countertop whenever we get the chance. It gives the kitchen a lived-in feel without sacrificing space for functionality.
You can do any fruit year-round, but it’s fun to switch it up throughout the seasons. Add interest with an elevated bowl and take a step back; you’d be surprised at how much it does!
No, 4: Add elevated soap
Pretty hand soap is another one of those simple, everyday use items that can be updated in minutes. Designer soap may seem unnecessary, but an elevated bottle or two next to your sink brings a thoughtful and curated element to any kitchen.
No. 5: Update your towels
We love using textured or patterned hand towels for hanging over the sink or on the oven handle. You can style them on the dining table for formal events or even under a simple dinner plate in place of a mat.
