Kitchen Confidential

Today I'm sharing another room in my apartment, possibly my favorite: the kitchen. Being on an upper floor, I get a lot of natural light. It's my happy place to sit near the window on weekend mornings as the sun streams in. To match that happy feeling, I picked yellow Cynthia Rowley curtains from Home Goods (hemmed to accommodate cove ceilings). I nabbed the table, which perfectly matches the countertops and cabinetry, off a co-worker's friend for $20. To top off the "happy" theme, I try and keep flowers out when I can. The tin and butterfly trays are from a vintage pop-up shop (per the butterfly: I have an unexplainable thing for vintage ash trays). The photos above the window are from my Grandpa's office and I am struggling to keep the succulents below alive. Sometimes the pantry is stocked and sometimes the cupboards are bare, but I can always live off of cereal, ramen and eggs with Sriracha.

  2. Yayy! Such a bright, happy kitchen! Ours is dark sadly, because it's a lot of dark wood and bricks, haha....

  3. I love your little breakfast nook! Nothing better than good natural light in every room of the house, but especially the kitchen, since I probably spend the most time in there.
