Decorating With Details

Tray: TJ Maxx, Mini Bowls: Target
For those little things that never seem to get put away
Candle & Candle Dish: Target
Sandlewood Candle, the best smelling candle ever
Holiday Gravy Dish: TJ Maxx
Holds keys.. and gravy?
Shoes lined up in front of a full-length mirror
Too many shoes, too little space
It's important to optimize space when working with a small area. This leaves little room for things that serve no purpose other than decoration. To find a happy medium, I tried to find items with simple details that would double as decoration and storage..

Kitchen Decor

My little, barely 50 square foot kitchen, was bare and boring when I moved in. I knew it needed some more counter space, and definitely some brightness. The solution?
A kitchen cart from Wal-Mart & colorful Anthropologie bowls for display
Textured plates from Ikea 
Simple silverware with a cute rhinestone detail 
At first I was intimidated to decorate my kitchen and didn't know how to start or which direction to go in. Looking back, I think my kitchen was the easiest to decorate. I bought colorful dish towels from Target that match my kitchen mat, and use the kitchen cart as counter space and display. The combination of colors and textures adds a cute and simple element to the kitchen.
