Welcome to Fall in the Kitchen 2018! Our kitchen has light yellow walls (Benjamin Moore “Hay Stack”), and the same molding and floor board color as the rest of the house, which is Sherwin Williams “Arizona White”. These colors are flexible and easy to work with all year round, but especially in the fall with all the terra cotta, rusts, russets and orange.
I am starting at the back end of our kitchen, where our hutch and kitchen table sit. (We purchased these new when we finished our remodel.)
I usually fill the hutch with my little collection of Halloween characters along with pumpkins collected from various craft fairs. But this year, I took a different approach and filled the hutch with a cornucopia and baskets filled with fall leaves, fruits and berries, and included a few fall leaf plates, and ceramic pumpkins. I added the little black jack-o-lantern – he just seemed to fit right in!
Above the sink is the plate shelf that I have been working on giving more focus to. (You can read about my ‘adventures’ with this plate shelf here! ) I used this white basket last summer on the plate shelf, and decided to use it again for fall, updated with fall fruit. I punched up the color a bit by adding 2 white pitchers on each side and filling them with twig, berry and pine cone picks
This is a little grouping that I put out every fall. The pumpkin plaque came from JoAnn’s many years ago and the mini-milk bottle set is from Home Goods. I stacked a few small bowls from my Grandmother’s china (I’m actually not even sure what they are to be used for!) and perched a petite white pumpkin on top.
On the walls I have hung a few things that help bring a fall feel into the kitchen. Over the years (and craft fairs!) I have picked-up these harvest-themed oven pads, and hung them on the walls. (You can see them in the kitchen pictures below.)
Also from a craft fair is this ‘Welcome Autumn’ sign; I love how unique it is, and how bright colors are. The pumpkin sign came from Michaels.
And these are a few shots of my galley kitchen. Both of my grandmothers had yellow and white kitchens; apparently it had a big influence on me.
Our remodel was done about 12 years ago, (before Pinterest and Instagram). We added a an extra foot in length to the countertops, and put in big pull-out pot drawers everywhere I could think of. The end result is – I love my kitchen. (Which is a good thing – since I spend so much time in here!) I have plenty of counter space, and probably also have plenty of cabinet and drawer storage. (It only seems like there is never enough!)
And those are not wood floors; the floor is laid with vinyl planks. We used a product called Karndean, and it has held up beautifully over the years.
I hope you have enjoyed this fall tour in my kitchen, and maybe even picked up a little inspiration or a few ideas!
Happy Fall – From our home to yours~
