I like to keep things inspirational (be happy just because) and encouraging (EAT!) in my kitchen.
We built a small island in our kitchen, one that houses a wine refrigerator. This island holds my recipes, gives my daughter a place to sit and snack or craft.
BUT, the custom greenhouse window is one of the major focal points of our kitchen.
If I had more of a green thumb, the greenhouse window would be the perfect place to grow fresh herbs. Though I have tried to coax basil into living on one of these shelves, I've never succeeded.
So, my greenhouse shelves are filled with succulents, trinkets and inspiration.
Another custom feature we added to our kitchen was a DIY custom knife drawer. My knives now stay safely in place and organized.
I do a lot of cooking in my house, though I rarely share recipes on my blog. I like to use the recipes of other talented bloggers, friends and family. When I cook, I like to grab some fun cooking accessories to make the process more inspiring and fun.
The flower frog is the perfect, unconventional holder for my recipes and the milk bottle Anthropologie measuring cups make me feel as if I am a better cook.
Between cooking meals, I like to have fresh fruit out and accessable.
Since I have a small kitchen, to maximize space, I use command hooks inside of my cabinets to hang oven mitts, towels, aprons and, at one point, bibs hung here as well.
My bib wearer, though, is now a sweet little 5 year old SO my kitchen is also a kid friendly and kid inspired place.
A kid inspired nook of my kitchen is next to my stove.
There you will find my recipe box. Inside my recipe box, not recipes like you might expect but note cards filled with moments I want to remember spending with Grace. In this nook, there is also a hand painted trivet covered with Grace's finger prints.
The kid friendly areas of my kitchen would include the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. I have it filled with easy to grab kid friendly snacks (with the exception of the tomatoes, I can't get her to eat a tomato for the life of me).
Another kid friendly area of my kitchen, a drawing station on the edge of my cabinet.
She can stay close, while I am busy in the kitchen yet still have a space of her own.
The chalk board isn't just for the little one, I've also added it to my canisters as well.
And, those canisters are in my favorite part of my kitchen, the walk in butler's pantry.
Thank you so much for stopping by and...
