Brighten up your kitchen with color and pieces that make you smile!

Put Some Pep Into Your Food Prep!

1. Paint Your Cabinets Sea Glass Green– Although Emerald is the darling of the design world right now, it’s softer cousin, Sea Glass, is sweeping the fashion community with it’s throwback feel. Where Emerald energizes, Sea Glass brings serenity. On cabinets, this jadeite hue will give your kitchen nostalgic charm, and will calm even the most hectic meals.


Create an herb garden with old tea tins

2. Create an Herb Garden With Old Tea Tins – Caring for plants has been proven to reduce stress. Seeing something green in your life, especially during a dreary winter, will give you a mood boosting connection to nature. Save money at the grocery store by starting an herb garden on your kitchen windowsill. Basil, parsley, rosemary and chives are easy for beginners to grow indoors. Use old tea tins for a charming mini container garden and a happier kitchen is on it’s way!


Bring in a Bright Fridge to Make Your Kitchen a Little Happier!

3. Bring In A Bright Fridge – Retro-style colorful fridges are coming back on the market via brands like the Italian appliance manufacturer Smeg. One of these babies nestled in between your cabinets will make even a tiny kitchen stand out from the pack.

4. Shake up Your Table with Bold Salt and PepperS + P are the spices you use the most, so why not find shakers that you’ll be glad to leave out on the table?
