This whimsical tea kettle playhouse is the perfect space for kids to escape and have a magical tea party. An outdoor bistro table with chairs complete with tea set sparks creativity and imagination. Flower shaped lights and landscaping insets coordinate well with the natural landscape and flowers in this backyard setting.
This kitchen mixes vintage details, like the stove, with modern elements like the stainless steel range hood for a dynamic, visually compelling look. Using different shades of blue is a fun way to bring in color.
The redesign of this lovely residence, home to a family of five, began as a kitchen remodel then turned into a full house renovation. The owners loved bright colors and splashy patterns, so they're seen throughout from cheery accents in the kitchen to the sunny wallpaper in the foyer.
White shaker style kitchen cabinets with brushed nickel drawer pulls give this kitchen an elegant, contemporary look. Glass paneled cabinets break up the solid white cabinets and allow vintage tea kettles to show.
The crisp white-and-gray decor of this galley kitchen allows lots of room for bright pops of color in the accessories, like the yellow tea kettle and turquoise dish towel. The gray tile backsplash is both efficient and sophisticated.
A wall of marble subway tile forms into a framed blue and brown mosaic tile backsplash that adds visual interest to this transitional kitchen. A blue tea kettle and red knobbed stove pop against the white cabinetry and black granite countertops.
Mix equal parts unpasteurized ACV and water in a clean spray bottle. Use this mixture to cut through grease, clean up grime and wipe out bacteria. The smell disappears as the vinegar evaporates. This cleaner is ideal for stove tops, counters, sinks and laundry room surfaces. It’s great for cleaning up metal tea kettles and the plastic touch pad on microwave and stove control panels. It also makes cleaning the inside of a microwave super easy. Spritz it inside the microwave on all surfaces, heat for 25 seconds, and wipe with a paper towel.
To open up the kitchen to the rest of the living area meant losing a wall of cabinets. But the designers added lots of hidden storage to make up for it: A microwave is tucked inside the peninsula; a glass storage cabinet is built in on one wall; and there is a huge pull-out pantry next to the refrigerator.
Instead of using color to create visual interest, this all-white kitchen livens up its look by incorporating different textures (marble, wood) and patterns, like the mosaic-tile backsplash for the cooktop.
