Best of the Best Kitchen Ideas: New Series!

Best of the Best Kitchen Ideas: New Series!

Hey friends! Happy JUNE! I have to say, I’ve been having a blast planning my new kitchen. Even though it has been slow going planning and waiting on contractors and such, y’all know I love kitchen design, right? I’m not a kitchen designer, I just happen to LOVE dreaming about remodeling and finding the best kitchen ideas out there.

The funny thing is I would need at least a dozen or more kitchens in my house to use all the ideas that I’ve gathered in the recent months. I guess I’ve gone a bit overboard on gathering ideas, ha! Gathering inspiration is fun but it’s time consuming to research all of the best options and sort through the internet to find the most inspiring ideas. Since I only have one kitchen to redo (darn), I had an idea of what to do with all the potential inspiration and ideas I LOVED but may or may not be able to use! I could pass the best of the best ideas on to YOU!

Best of the Best Kitchen Ideas: New Series!

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be kicking off the first post in my super fun new series called The Best of the Best with this month’s emphasis on Kitchen Ideas and Inspiration. Along with other regular updates I like to share from around my house (such as my guest bedroom reveal which is coming up very soon and the latest updates our own kitchen remodel!), you’ll find lots of inspiring ideas specifically for kitchens this month.

I can’t wait to share all kinds of posts highlighting beautiful inspiration for every corner of the kitchen and all the related ideas and tips I’ve gathered as I’ve been planning my own kitchen! Even though I can’t use all the ideas in my house (sorrow) I’m excited that this series might spark an idea for decorating or remodeling your own kitchen. Either way, it’s fun to dream, isn’t it?

And then next month I’ll continue the Best of the Best series with a new focus topic.

I can’t wait! See you back here tomorrow for the first Best of the Best Kitchen Ideas and Inspiration post.

Decorating Your House {Simply} Through the Seasons

Decorating Your House {Simply} Through the Seasons

I love decorating my house through the seasons. As you’ve probably gathered if you hang out here much, I don’t really use a lot of themed decor. But I do love making my house warm and cozy this time of year and then lighting things up for the spring and summer. It helps to have a neutral backdrop with the foundational items around the house, such as paint colors and rugs, so the accessories can be the transitional pieces. I definitely keep things simple year round, but it is fun to have the opportunity to mix things up a bit every season.

Most of the time I use what I have, pull in some seasonal greenery and move things around until I get a new look that just feels more seasonally appropriate and inspiring!

Let’s take a peek at my coffee station in my kitchen through several seasons! You’ll see how several of the items are repeated or styled in different ways through each season (such as cutting boards and the mug holder) and a few seasonal elements are brought in (such as different colored books, greenery or accessories I made or have for the season).

I truly do try to use what I have and don’t feel the need to buy all new holiday decor each year. You’ll see below that I used my simple DIY Peace Banner on the same shelf a couple of Christmases!

I’ll share other areas of my home dressed up for the different seasons in upcoming posts. Courtney and I have been working on something else kind of fun for you guys, too. Those of you who made it to the end of this post can get a sneak peek!

For years I’ve had an online shop for The Inspired Room, but over the past couple of months I’ve been getting it prettier and better organized. Because my shop of favorite furniture, lighting, and decor from my home was getting kind of full, we started creating smaller themed shops that should be easier to navigate. We are excited to finally be better organized! We had so much fun window shopping online at a variety of sources to round up collections of some of our favorite things. Check out our new shops here!

We’ve also started to create several helpful gift guides this year of my most favorite gifts for the season because if you are anything like me, sometimes you just want to shop online in your jammies and slippers :). Check out our first few gift guides here!

Happy shopping!
