Bright, multicolored bar stools in the kitchenLet’s step up the color in the kitchen. Using color in the kitchen is a fun way to break up the normal neutral tones you normally see in the space. Usually there’s a good amount of white or some variation of stereotypical granite, so why not break it up?

Get a couple colors that pop out and say, “Hey! Look at me!” Bring that life and fun back to the space. Sometimes it’s as easy as throwing a quick coat of paint on the cabinets or grabbing a few eye-catching appliances. There’s no need to deck the entire kitchen out in color – unless you want to and we support you 100%! Check out some of these kitchens that are using color and get inspired!

Coastal kitchen with bistro style chair bar stoolsBecause a bar just isn’t complete without a bar stool. It’s like the classic PB&J. It doesn’t happen without the J. We can’t live in a world without complete and happy endings – it just isn’t right. Basically that’s why bar stools were invented. Okay, we can’t confirm that, but it’s the story we’re going with and we’re sticking to it.

Bar stools offer a lot to the look of a well designed kitchen and they actually serve a purpose. They give you place to plant your butt while you use that bar you had to have built into your kitchen island.

Another great advantage of the good ol’ bar stool is its ability to easily change the style or look of the kitchen. No remodeling or expensive projects involved, simply pick out your new stools and take out the old ones. Done and done.

Get inspired to bring new ideas into your kitchen with these lovely pictures featuring some beautifully designed and decorated kitchens complete with bar stools as well as plenty of envious design details.

Bright coastal living room with plenty of ocean inspired decorA wooden ladder is a great design piece and an easy way to add rustic decor to your home. They’re extremely versatile and bring a great deal of eye pleasing interest to any space. How does a wooden ladder do this? By taking advantage of the vertical space.

They fill the room and give your eye something to follow through the space. This is as easy as leaning the wooden ladder up against the wall. Now if you want to take it a step further, you can add another layer of decor to continue building dynamic design. Decorate the ladder with throws or even hang art from them, the options can be as creative as you are (or, realistically, what you find on Pinterest). If you’re handy enough you can even convert a wooden ladder into a makeshift shelf. Just be careful what you choose to display, we can’t imagine those will be the sturdiest of shelves!

Take a look at what these designers have done and how they have decorated these spaces with wooden ladders. Plus let’s not forget, they’re a great excuse to go antique hunting. Oops, did we just plant that seed into your mind? Happy hunting!
