It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some home decor images, and I was just thinking about how I never did share any of the images I took a few months ago for Creatively Made Home here on the blog…
So if you’ll indulge me – I’d love to share… these were taken in August/September.
I haven’t changed much in this kitchen over the last few years but I am trying to add some rustic warmth with baskets and bread boards. My kitchen is in the middle of our home, so it doesn’t have any windows, but we do have two skylights that let the sun pour in. It’s hot and uncomfortable during the summer heat but most of the year I love the flood of light.
^ I made that pitcher myself in ceramics class in high school. It holds our most used kitchen utensils. Josh and I cook almost everything in that beat up old toaster oven. It’s so much easier than using the large wall oven which heats up our house and always seems to be off in temperature (even after we have it serviced).
^ I plan to add some rustic wood shelves in place of this chalkboard soon. I will display some old ironstone or pretty trinkets and cook books there on the shelves. I’ve been eyeing some at West Elm, but haven’t wanted to splurge just yet.
I grew tired of the “Paris” sign so I retired it from our decor and added it to the shop for someone else to enjoy.
I also hope to retire this rug and change the seagrass carpeting out with some tile – but that is a future project that will take many, many months of coaxing Josh to get on board. For now, it remains on my “someday” list. ;)
