I’ve always had love of black and gold in the kitchen. My last kitchen used this color combo and we’re thinking about using the same looking in our new kitchen. Also loving Drew Barrymore’s Beautiful line at Walmart! It’s about time we made kitchen appliances more appealing, wouldn’t you agree?

Phase one is complete! If you remember the kitchen progress plan from my last post, you’ll see we had some major updates going on. The first major change in here? The flooring had to go! I found some amazing picket tile at Home Depot that looks updated, on-trend and yet classic at the same time. It also compliments the small hex tile flooring in the adjoining washroom. When Home Depot reached out to see if I was interested in partnering with them on updating my kitchen flooring, I may or may not have done a happy dance. They made it possible for my kitchen goals to begin, literally, from the ground up 😉
Here’s a glimpse of the kitchen now, want to see more? I’ve written a post with the full reveal over on the Home Depot blog today! So be sure to head on over and check it out. So far, everything is looking exactly how I’d envisioned it and I couldn’t be more excited! I would love to hear what you think! Did you vote for the picket tile or one of the others? I mean, really I don’t think there was a bad option, but I’m pretty ecstatic about my choice. Thanks for helping me make the right decision!

Let’s talk tiny kitchens. I see you, fellow apartment dwellers. If there’s one thing that drives me crazy about my NYC apartment it’s the lack of storage and counter space in my kitchen. I love to cook but it can be frustrating in such a small space. Luckily, I’ve found a few tricks along the way to maximize square footage.
If there is a collapsible version of anything, that’s the one I choose. I rely on a dish rack since my tiny kitchen doesn’t have a dishwasher, but I hate seeing it out in the open when it’s not in use. I love that this one pops into a smaller size to store under the sink when I need to free up space or have guests over.
Don’t be afraid to use verticle space as well. Pots and pans are convenient to reach, yet out of the way, when they’re on a pot rack instead of in a cabinet. Magnetic organizers for things like spices or knives help make full use of wall space and are great when you’re low on drawer space.
I also look for things that are multipurpose. Instead of a toaster, I have this mini smart oven that I’m obsessed with. It toasts, bakes, broils, and roasts, all without taking up much space. It’s also a great alternative to turning on the oven when I’m just making something small.
My final tips apply to any small space: stay organized (this will help!) and stick to a color palette. It’s easy to acquire a lot of random kitchen things that don’t necessarily look good together, but this can be avoided by keeping one or two colors/finishes in mind.
Whew, that was a lot! Any tips/tricks I missed? Let us know your favorite kitchen space savers in the comments!

I’ve been a huge nesting kick lately, kon maring everything in site. I think it’s my idea of lightening up for summer. One of my main tasks? Clearing out and organizing the kitchen. As you know, my kitchen is pretty small, so our cabinets get crammed pretty fast and easily. I culled all of the useless kitchen tools that we no longer use, as well as the old and just downright ugly. Only keep what you love, right? Thankfully World Market makes it super easy (and affordable) to outfit the kitchen with good looking and reasonably priced kitchen essentials. As you can tell from my picks, I’m all about white and wood. Nothing better for getting your kitchen looking warm and clean!

If you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve been on a home decorating kick lately. It’s funny, but it always seems to take about a year of living in a house for me to really get inspired on how to furnish and decorate the space. I really like to get to know a house and how we live in it before I know what the home needs, in terms of furniture, changes or decor. Today I’m going to show you our mudroom. It’s a small room right off the entryway and open to the kitchen. When we first moved in, I had grand plans of making it a breakfast nook, but that changed pretty fast. It’s now a major workhorse in our home. One side serves as an extension to our kitchen and the other serves as our mudroom.
Macy’s is having a one day sale!
I had to do a double-take over a few of these deals. That couch (in multiple colors!) for under $500!? The bench is $49…that’s almost 90% off the original price! This sale is dreamy and it’s one day only!
