:: Pull Up A Stool, A Bar Stool ::

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.

This stool is a great addition to the kitchen that’s made with reclaimed wood and has an iron frame. The wood, metal materials create a combination that offers great texture to the kitchen space. The stools also compliment an island (pictured nicely above) or a bar perfectly as well. Interested in picking up some bar stools for your kitchen?

Tuesday Tips

country-living-aqua-breakfast-nookIf you haven’t picked up this month’s Country Living you’re truly missing out on a great design example. They take this beautiful breakfast nook and show you four different ways to design it. It really shows what a little color, a chair swap and a few accessories can do. They used the same mirror, same table, some white bench cushions and switched up and swapped out everything else. We just love how these covers are a visual guide and let you see exactly how easy it can be to revamp and revive any space with color. For those of you who are wanting to redo a space in your home use this as inspiration. It can be done! Get yourself some paint and hit the shops for some accessories!

Which cover is your favorite? Our favorite is the first cover. We love aqua, teal, greens and blues. They’re coastal and bright which gives the nook a great feeling. Then again, we really love the wall color on the third cover! They’re all so great!

:: Be Smart About Painting Your Kitchen ::

Tuesday Tips

coastal kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most used spaces in the home, so why not show it some love? When it comes to painting your kitchen you should be smart about it. Ask yourself questions like do I really need to paint the whole kitchen? Or can I bring my kitchen back to life with just a quick splash of paint? Maybe all you need to do is paint the island or a few cabinets and your kitchen is revamped. Maybe you need to paint the whole thing and if it’s time then it’s time. There’s no reason to do a full overhaul with paint if you don’t need to. It’s a hassle and a headache waiting to happen. Usually a little paint will go a long way.

Your color choices should reflect the space and the natural feel of it. If your kitchen gets a lot of natural light you may want to choose colors that absorb the light instead of colors that will reflect it. This way you can actually enjoy your kitchen instead of wearing your sunglasses inside or always having the curtains drawn. The same goes with a naturally dark kitchen. If your kitchen doesn’t get that much natural light you might want to go with lighter, airy colors so it doesn’t feel so dark or small. If it’s time for an update, really think about it and plan your painting before you try to tackle the entire space.

Paint is a great way to spice up any kitchen and if you plan it right we promise you’ll save yourself money, time and stress. Have any successful kitchen painting stories or horror stories? How about some of your tips or tricks? Let us know! We’d love to hear all about them! Bottom line is paint is a great way to spice up any kitchen, here are some examples for you guys.kitchen with a green color palettekitchen with nautical design elements Rustic beach inspired kitchen
