My Imaginary Kitchen

I like my house but the one room I'd love to do over if I had the money is my kitchen. So I decided to peruse Etsy and find some elements to bring my imaginary kitchen-to-be into existence. I chose the color palette of pale blue/green, orange and brown. This whole idea began when I saw this gorgeous platter from Swede 13. Shop owner, Angie from Winter Park, Florida added a few coats of duck egg blue paint to this once silver tray. Now, I'm completely smitten...

Vintage glass bottles with ever fresh flowers in them is a nice thought...and every kitchen needs a clock, this one made by Spartus in Louisville, Mississippi in the 1960's. Jeanette Zeis pottery- well that's a must. I love her oversize teacups in orange. And Jeni from Barking Sands Vintage in Maryland offers this gorgeous silver and walnut salad bowl in her Etsy shop. I think I'd use it to hold fresh fruit...

I recently bought some vintage cocktail forks at Authentique in Atlanta. They came with a little bow on them just like this...and I love them every time I see them in my drawer. So I think vintage spoons should be on my list too. 

Perhaps I should check into a clinic but words can't express my love for this lamp. It's Danish modern with a ceramic and walnut base and so so lovely. If you follow Sweet Peach, you know I have a thing for kitchen nooks- so this is my idea of a key essential for my nook. I'd add this atop my cafe table along with a pretty tablecloth, close to a window. An easy, happy place to daydream...
