Put Some Pep Into Your Food Prep!

1. Paint Your Cabinets Sea Glass Green– Although Emerald is the darling of the design world right now, it’s softer cousin, Sea Glass, is sweeping the fashion community with it’s throwback feel. Where Emerald energizes, Sea Glass brings serenity. On cabinets, this jadeite hue will give your kitchen nostalgic charm, and will calm even the most hectic meals.


Create an herb garden with old tea tins

2. Create an Herb Garden With Old Tea Tins – Caring for plants has been proven to reduce stress. Seeing something green in your life, especially during a dreary winter, will give you a mood boosting connection to nature. Save money at the grocery store by starting an herb garden on your kitchen windowsill. Basil, parsley, rosemary and chives are easy for beginners to grow indoors. Use old tea tins for a charming mini container garden and a happier kitchen is on it’s way!


Bring in a Bright Fridge to Make Your Kitchen a Little Happier!

3. Bring In A Bright Fridge – Retro-style colorful fridges are coming back on the market via brands like the Italian appliance manufacturer Smeg. One of these babies nestled in between your cabinets will make even a tiny kitchen stand out from the pack.

4. Shake up Your Table with Bold Salt and PepperS + P are the spices you use the most, so why not find shakers that you’ll be glad to leave out on the table?

    Love a bit of color in a neutral kitchen –also a little vintage touch such as in the salt and pepper shakers, tea tins.

    Chandelier is ugly there. A little bit of iron or aluminum would be better with a glass pendant.

  6. Keeping chandeliers bright and clean is so easy. I used to see an expensive chandelier cleaning spray in lighting stores, then figured out what was in them.
    Put clear ammonia and rubbing alcohol (not picky about proportions, but maybe 2/3 ammonia and 1/3 alcohol) in a spray bottle to the halfway mark. Fill with distilled water.
    Cover the surface below the chandelier with plastic like an old shower curtain, then towels or newspapers.
    Spray vigorously all over chandelier, leaving it dripping until dry.
    It is like a miracle with fussy crystal chandeliers. I do this regularly to all light fixtures in my house a couple of times a year. If it doesn't come perfectly clean the first time, that means it was really, really dirty and greasy. Repeat.

    FYI, love the smeg fridgebut it is about $2K, i think. some of the other options may be more doable.

  9. see the chandelier in the green kitchen? Try cleaning the grease that will be clinging to THAT after a few months. charming, but, no, thanks.
