Spring Kitchen Counters & Pinterest Challenge
Are you ready for another Pinterest Challenge? If this is your first time hearing about the Pinterest Challenge, let me explain. Every month, our fabulous host Cindy from County Road 407, selects an inspiration photo for everyone to recreate. Each participant puts their own spin on the photo, according to each of our individual and unique styles of decorating.
If you’re stopping by from Thistle Key Lane, I’m so happy you’re here. Don’t you love how Michelle uses trays to control kitchen clutter? And you won’t want to miss my other friends at the end of this post for even more inspiration.
Our inspiration photo this month comes from Marly at Maryl Dice. As you can see, her kitchen has all the touches of spring.
I loved the quote in Marly’s blog post… “Life happens in the kitchen”. Isn’t that the truth??? We spend so much time in our kitchen, and I don’t always give it as much “decor love” as I should. But Marly gave me the inspiration to refresh my very favorite room in the house for spring.
Items To Incorporate
I used many of the same elements as possible from the inspirational photo. The fact that I only used home décor items that were already in the house was an added bonus and goes nicely with my “simple” refresh. I wanted to include:
- Pitcher of Flowers
- A single-tiered cake stand with coffee cups and saucers
- Bowl (actually bowls) of fruit
- A few Ironstone pieces
Spring in the kitchen is all about the flowers and fruit which add the perfect pop of color. And it doesn’t hurt that there is a blooming camellia tree located right outside the kitchen window.
To fill my white pitcher, I cut these beautiful yellow blooms from the garden. Japanese roses bloom here from April to May and they are one of the most gorgeous flowers in the spring garden.
SHOP WHITE PITCHERS
Rather than using my Ironstone coffee cups, I decided to display the blue and white espresso cup. I found them at HomeGoods a month or so ago and love how they look with the bright yellow flowers.
SHOP ESPRESSO AND COFFEE CUPS
Of course I had to display my new Ironstone pieces like this one. Isn’t it pretty?
A dough bowl full of green apples is simple yet creates just the right amount of interest.
SHOP DOUGH BOWLS
Here are a couple more Ironstone pieces displayed on the kitchen counter with lemons and greenery.
SHOP BREAD BOARDS
I’m in love with this scalloped bowl I found a couple of weeks ago at a local shop called Details Home and Garden.
SHOP IRONSTONE BOWLS
I hope my simple spring kitchen refresh gave you some ideas for bringing some simple spring decor to your counters. Are you ready to see more Pinterest Challenges?
