Orla Kiely (and Other New Details) in the Kitchen

The Target near me finally put out some of the Orla Kiely goodies I’ve been wishing for, so I picked up a couple of canisters for the kitchen. The cheery pattern is really cute in there!

I put this “Eat” sign above the fridge quite a while ago, but I hadn’t taken a photo of it until now…


My mother-in-law has the same sign in red in the family’s Wisconsin lake house. I bought mine from Feather Your Nest (though it looks like they have different word signs now).

And how cute are these little measuring spoons? I love the soft clacking sounds they make as I open the cabinet.

We Might Paint the Kitchen Floor

I’ve been thinking about it for a long time, and Brandon is on board (!), so I’m gathering some inspiration photos of painted floors. The wood in our kitchen really isn’t in the best shape, and there’s an area by the stove where the woods aren’t even the same. I figure we’d have to strip the floors and redo them to really make them look nice anyway, so why not try painting them instead?

*edit* I’ve posted photos of the floor in the comments below.

I love Elena Colombo’s colorful kitchen from Blueprint:

And I love Nora Fleming’s striped kitchen floor (via design*sponge):

Nora painted all of the trim in her 1920 Chicago bungalow white… just like I could do to mine. It’s a love/hate relationship, me and all this wood.

At the Back Door

Brandon setup a little area near the back door for our coats and shoes (and a leash too).

At the Back Door

This is where the stairs are that lead down to the basement, right next to the back door in the kitchen.

The hooks and shelves only cost about $15 total (from IKEA). We should have done this a long time ago.
