When considering your kitchen design scheme the most important and effective objects to consider are those to be left on show in shelves or on the kitchen surfaces themselves. Whether it be a toaster, kettle, microwave, utensil jar or soap dispenser these elements all make a design statement. Consequently, ensure they coordinate with one and other whilst also echoing the design of the units themselves.

For examplecustomized gifts, in a contemporary kitchen consider stainless steel appliances to contribute to the industrial and glossy finish. For more traditional kitchens; shop around for more complementary styles such as a kettle shaped in the traditional ‘tea pot’ style or appliances with a satin finish in a coordinating colour to your room. Why not even consider a touch of retro by opting for the fabulous diner style appliances in soft candy colours.

Alongside the electronic appliances also review your storage jars and utensils. Consider wooden, marble, glass, steel or plastic jars. Consider metal, plastic or wooden utensils. Again these objects should coordinate, contribute and echo the design statements made throughout the room and can in fact be used to bring other elements together. For example, if you have a wooden table and stainless steel appliances, to help marry these two elements, purchase a wooden storage jar to hold a selection of stainless steel utensils. Simple!

?Alongside the more practical elements why not have some fun and add some more decorative pieces to your kitchen. For instance, in both traditional and contemporary homes, why not paint a small wall in blackboard paint to not only create a cheap and stylish notice board but also entertain your children whilst cooking. Or, for a more enchanting finish, why not collect any used yet decorative bottles and turn them into individual and rustic candlesticks.

Finally, make sure your kitchen is definitely the heart of the home and make personalised table mats using family photographs, children’s artwork or scrap book style contents. These lovely and personalised additions ensure a fantastic conversation point and, once sealed with varnish, can last a considerable amount of time.

?Whatever your choice be sure to balance the practical and safety requirements of your kitchen with the aesthetic desires for your home. In contradiction to that; do remember that practical can indeed be personal and fun to you, your family and your guests.

I can’t even tell you how excited I have been to share some really great talent here on Make It and Love It.? My insides are full of butterflies……because this is just way too fun for me!? I shared months ago that I wanted to open up the free days on my blog (that I wasn’t blogging) to others who would love to fill those gaps and showcase their own work.? And you know, let some of you have as much fun as I have had for years and years here on this little ol’ blog. The sign-up forms FLOODED in and I was truly taken aback.? I could hardly believe the talent….and the interest!? It made me wonder how I could fit 500 more of you in here somehow.? (But that’s why I decided to start doing Link Parties every Saturday….and those have been so fun too.? There’s one still open here……join in!)? But I selected a large handful and will be introducing you to them over the next month or so.? I can hardly wait!!? Every single one has something unique to share…….and fits right in here with what I’m already doing.? Perfect!

For those of you who know my neighbor, Sara (...see my posts on her delicious homemade pasta recipes!)? her husband, Michele (pronounced in Italian “mee-keh-leh”) has the most amazing garden I have ever seen. If you walk in their front yard, you are not going to find an HGTV perfectly manicured garden. Rather you are going to find a gentleman with an amazing green thumb! Michele has the capacity to grow everything and anything! Here, you will find cacti sharing the same container alongside basil….it’s absolutely incredible. He grows so many different kinds of herb, flowers, plants, etc….all together. No fancy equipment, soil, nor professional gardener….it’s just Michele, his hand held garden shears,? and watering can…..Sicilian style! Let me give you a quick tour!
