Somewhere between working all day and falling asleep on the couch, I’ve still been daydreaming about our future place. We’re just a few months away and I can’t wait to start decorating. The one room I’ve had the least trouble envisioning is the kitchen. It all started when I saw a picture of a bright, red KitchenAid in a registry catalog. That one picture was all it took and I’ve never looked back on my decision to have a red kitchen. My amazing hubby kept the dream going for me when he actually bought me the red KitchenAid for my birthday one year. Now I find myself buying everything to match it.
Although not all of my inspiration pictures are red, when I use the ideas in my own kitchen they will be. I’ll have to post some pictures when I actually bring all these ideas to life.
Through gifts from my mum, and my own purchases, I bought a collection of Mickey Mouse cooking utensils. I probably won’t use them because they are so cute, but I want something like this in my kitchen so I can display them.
I bought the canisters, card, and frame from Target (I now actually have a third, taller canister, too). The picture has a multitude of kitchen appliances on it and says “you can never have too many new appliances.” Since my entire registry was pretty much kitchen appliances, I knew I had to have it and frame it for the kitchen.
I am obsessive compulsive, which means having everything neatly organized is a must for me. I absolutely hate how cluttered pans can get in a cabinet, so I’m hoping to find something like this. Maybe at Ikea? Notice how the pans are red haha?
Speaking of Ikea, I’m considering making a little baking center for myself. We’re going to be in an apartment at first, so I’m not sure if space will allow it. If it does, this little cupboard from Ikea will definitely be what I use. Not only is it red, it’s just super cute!
Last but not least, I kinda had to tie in my British roots and the colour red with this adorable kitchen mat. I haven’t bought it yet, but if it’s still around when I have the extra cash, it’s coming to my kitchen!
