Hey, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. Today marks the start of the Winter Eclectic Homes Tour, hosted by my friend Jess of Domicile 37. Today through Friday, you’ll get to see 25 unique homes all decked out for the holidays.If you’re joining me from Michelle Matangi’s tour, welcome! Her New Zealand home is edgy yet sophisticated, and I especially love the blush color she recently painted her living room walls.
I’m sharing my kitchen for the tour because I couldn’t get the rest of the house together. Michael’s been traveling non-stop and is still out-of-town, which doesn’t leave me a ton of time to decorate. (We also don’t change out the decorations from year to year, which makes for a rather redundant tour.) With that amazing introduction out of the way, let’s check out the kitchen.
I did purchase some new plaid plates to make up for the dining room being in complete and utter disarray. Yes, they make me feel better.
I like to add a wreath to the kitchen hood. Not only does it look cute, it also forces me to clean the hood so that the command strip will stick. True story–it had a year’s worth of dust and grime on it from the last time I hung a wreath. TMI?
I like this tiered tray for entertaining. It holds lots of store-bought cookies. I do bake, but usually right before Christmas.
Just like last year, I grabbed the extra cuttings when we picked out our tree. The scraps make for pretty, no-cost arrangements.
The girls have been asking for a cocoa bar again, so I dutifully obliged.
The bar isn’t much different from last year’s, although I did change out the ribbon. Check out how cute the girls used to be. (They’re still cute, but you know what I mean.)
It was incredibly dark and rainy when I was taking my photos, so I decided to take one with the lights on after fighting with my camera all afternoon. I know it’s a blogger no-no, but I think it’s pretty.
Thanks so much for stopping by my kitchen! Next on the tour is Caroline of CAD Interiors. Her home is beautiful and I know you’ll enjoy seeing it. This week will be full of inspiration, so be sure to check back each day of the tour. (Please note: links to the Home Tours are not live until the day of the tour.)
I hope you have a great day and I appreciate you stopping by!
