Our 2015 Christmas Kitchen

Let's see ... in 48 hours, this room be a big mess ... wrapping paper strewn everywhere, and Christmas breakfast in full swing!

Before that happens, I wanted to share our Christmas kitchen, nice and clean!


Since this room opens into our great room, I kept with the same red, green and white palette.  A festive red runner anchors our table (that I recently painted the top "Pure White" to match the base).  And, since we were having holiday get togethers, I removed the rug for the season to prevent any accidental trips or slips!

Have I showed you our new chairs yet from Restoration Hardware yet?!  I waited for them to go on sale ... glad I did ... they are pretty comfy and so easy to clean!


And, to tie in with our new chairs, I added a couple of mercury trees ... I love the contrast with the other holiday colors in here.


Even faux apples are easy to "dress up" by just tossing them in a bowl filled with pine.  


In this little corner, which used to be empty, we mounted a corner cabinet we had removed from the other side of the kitchen when we added shelves.  To fill the void below, I found this little piece from IKEA.


This year, I took away everything from on top of the cabinets and just added simple white icicle lights.  



I love their ambiance and just might have to leave them up awhile longer!  Down below, a cute "pie" sign from World Market with a bit of leftover garland sits ... flanked by matching lamps from Target that I filled with cookie cutters.


Ready for waffles?!


Here's our little tree which keeps me company when I'm pretending to whip up dinner ...


it's our little whimsical tree, filled with cookie cutters ... "candy" ... gingerbread ... and other cute ornaments I've collected (or have been thoughtfully gifted) over the years.


Pretty simplistic ... I look at it as "less to have to take down," right?



Our shelves didn't change much ... just a few candy canes added to our greenery as a little temptation! 


Hot cocoa, anyone?



Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to visit!

Merry Christmas!
