The kitchen can be a place where function rules. It is a space that you use all the time and as much as you want it to be pretty the practical side is screaming just leaving the blender on the counter…you use it everyday!
My perfect scenario is where form and function can both win and they can be friends. While 9 times out of 10 I choose form over function I am always trying to find a way to make the function pretty so I can have both.
In the kitchen you have to get creative and find ways to display the everyday things you use so that they are at your fingertips. We have not yet started our great kitchen renovation but I am loving tucking away ideas while I work on other areas of the house.
Megan from honeywerehome.com has a beautiful kitchen and she shares different ways that she styles the countertops at different times. Her kitchen looks clean and fresh and is a good source of inspiration.
Before you go and spend money on new things check out how maybe you can use things you already have in your own kitchen. Especially those fancy dishes that you only use at parties.
