It works so well in the den, why not take the same philosophy and apply it to your culinary classics?

Who hasn’t wished for an extra step up when trying to snag spices from the highest shelf?

we think a ladder in the kitchen is a charming and welcome touch.

Marble Countertops

1st Options

When it comes to kitchens, styles change. There are some we’re glad to see go — that means you, harvest gold and avocado green — and others we kind of wish would come back — designer white appliances perhaps? But when it comes to standing the test of time, linoleum, tile and even granite and quartz may come and go, but we think marble is one surface that stands the test of time.

Everyone warned me. I’ll admit it. I was told by everyone from the manufacturer to the installer that marble is not the most durable surface for a kitchen counter. But, when you get right down to it, some things in life are as much about aesthetics as they are about function.

So I did it anyway. And, it’s true. It gets etched. But what’s the point of having a beautiful kitchen if you can’t cook in it without being stressed? Plus, twice a year they come buff and re-seal it so it’s as good as new.

  We love marble sinks. So gorgeous.

These utilitarian light fixtures are amazing.

My husband and I should have added this feature to our kitchen. Someone always ends up washing a ton of produce in the bar sink!

These Mackenzie Childs canisters are so cute. Caroline on the Real Housewives of New Jersey has them in her house.

There’s nothing better than a kitchen with lighting galore. What a beautiful way to achieve it.

Those handles and hinges are so amazing. It really is the little things…

What a gorgeous spread — and chandelier. Who says the kitchen can’t sparkle?

Yellow is our all-time favorite kitchen accent color. It’s just so happy, isn’t it? 
We hope you all have a yellow kind of day.
