Shopping for Kitchen Accessories

I know I know, my kitchen isn’t even close to being finished yet, but I am already on the hunt for some fun accessories to brighten the place up.

I want to add some new art, some textiles, some useful accessories like cutting boards (which I hope to make) as well as a few new serving pieces and decor. I always like to give a room a few new touches even when its not getting a complete new makeover.

Here are some of the things I’m loving right now:

Butchery Prints from Smash Gallery.  I am leaning towards two of these for beside the coffee bar. I want to build some cool wood frames for them.




Ikea Skovel teal clock for the chalkboard wall in the dining room. We already have one of Ikea’s large clocks in our staircase and love the scale in our house. Ordinary sized clocks seemed tiny with our tall ceilings. The large scale and color is great. Although I am thinking of removing the clock face entirely and replacing it with something simpler.


A small tray for holding my olive oil and balsamic beside the stove. I like having oil & vinegar close at hand (as I pretty much use it everyday!) but I don’t want to risk staining my new counters, so a nice little¬† tray to set the bottles on is perfect.


Linen & Flour Sack tea towels. These linen guys from Crate & Barrel are cute.


A cute butter dish. I like this guy from Anthropologie. It lends itself well to the teal in the cabinets and the step stool.


Other things we need (that I haven’t found yet) are a new dog food mat for Odin (poor guy is getting relocated, and his food mat is a bit worse for wear!). As well as kitchen utensil holder & compost bin. I actually have a cool DIY project in mind for these. Hopefully I will give it a shot this weekend, and have something to report back next week!

Anything you’re lusting after for your kitchen right now?
