I mentioned a few weeks ago that I changed some things around in my kitchen. I love my kitchen. The kitchen truly is my happy place. It's where my sweetheart and I sit and chat at the end of the day, it's where I make my favorite foods and experiment new things, it's where I sit and look into my oven when I have a cake that's baking or a pizza that's cooking and can't wait to taste it, it's where I sip my wine while I'm making chicken cutlets and a caprese salad. So needless to say, I like my kitchen to be a cozy and happy place for me and for my guests.
I wanted to share this with you so you can see where my cooking takes place. It's my most favorite room in the house and it really reflects my personality. It's feminine, warm and inviting and until my next switch up...I'm loving this look :-)
I didn't do anything dramatic like paint cupboards or anything, I just changed a few things, added some new art work and switched up the fabrics. I changed my chandy as well. I Love it!!
Here you can see what my kitchen looked like before my little makeover.
And this is what my kitchen looks like today:
I bought a new chandelier that was on sale and that I immediately fell in love with. The pictures really don't do it justice as it is so much prettier when you see it lit up in the evenings. It adds so much color to the room.
Gigia photo bombs a lot during this post but she's cute so it's ok :-)
I bought some new art work that I added to that back wall just because it was pretty bare before and I think they go so well together displayed like that. I switched them up a lot before deciding on that set up.
You can't really see the curtains too well but I made them from Ikea Berta Ruta fabric. It's a sheer cotton fabric that allows light to come in while at the same time providing privacy to the balcony door.
I also bought these cute seat cushions for my kitchen chairs. They are Ikea as well and they are double faced so I can switch them over if I want. This is what the other side looks like:

I bought these Lenda curtains in light red which turned out to be the perfect color.
I had plenty of fabric to use. I added buttons to the bench cushion as well.
And that pretty much sums up everything I did. I was debating on whether or not to get a kitchen island. In fact I'm still on the hunt for one but I don't want to spend too much. For now this will do. I have to say I'm pleased with how it turned out.
I wish you all a great week ahead!
