Hey everyone! Is it starting to feel like Fall in your area? As I walked outside this morning to get the newspaper, it was actually cool......as in 72 degrees instead of 100 here in the Arizona desert! We will still get some low 100 degree days, but I do think we are on the downhill side of summer -- YAY! Well, if you've been following my blog for awhile, then you know I started my Fall decor several weeks ago. I've shared my foyer and sitting room HERE and my dining room HERE, but don't believe for a minute that those spaces are finished. Nope......I've already made some changes I'll share in another post, because today I want to share my favorite room (excluding my craftroom, of course), the "heart of our home," the kitchen! Do you want to see? Well come on in!
In case you haven't picked up on it yet, I am still in the mode of adding turquoise, mostly in small doses, all throughout our home.
I am absolutely convinced that turquoise is a "new" neutral......seriously, have you seen any color that doesn't look good with turquoise? I think not!
The blend of all these wonderful colors just makes me smile and my heart sing!
That cute little chicken canister holds my Pumpkin Spice Coffee! If those lamps look familiar, that's because they use to be on the white buffet in my dining room.
They've had work done -- I'll share soon!
I don't have a lot of special Fall dishes, so I decided to display them all together on this large tray
for a bigger impact. The turquoise & orange runners are from IKEA.
Yep, that's my handsome son up there, just hanging out with me in the kitchen just as he did when he was three. Don't ever discourage your little ones from helping you prepare food, they just might become a chef some day!
I originally had much more "stuff" above the cabinets, but like it much better now......
less can be more, and sometimes your eyes need places to rest.
My little buddy up there is trying to say, "Have a great week everyone, and come back to
see us any old time!"
