At Home – Kitchen

Something I haven’t done much of, on this blog, is show my home – and that’s because there isn’t much to show.  My husband and I live in a 500 sq alcove studio in New York City, and our kitchen is a part of a larger kitchen-dining-living-room-office that we spent the majority of our time in.  That said, it is our little slice of Manhattan, and I love our little home dearly.  The kitchen area is one of my particular favorites – especially all the grains and spices in their individual jars, the glassware and barware holding court in the open shelves, and my toys (appliances, gadgets, sharp objects, oh my!)  I spent a lot of time puttering in this corner of our home, whether it’s to prepare dinner or a simple cup of tea.  I hope you enjoy seeing it – I certainly enjoy spending my time here.

– I love this Lazy Susan – both the crazy pattern (fun) and easy access to all my condiments (function) –

– Small spaces have to be functional – tea resides near the kettle, and right near breakfast grains for early mornings –

– I have a random obsession with pigs – this little guy keeps me company in the kitchen –

– Every jar has its own chalkboard top – a fun DIY project for a rainy weekend –

Like every home, this room is a constant work in progress and has had more changes since I photographed it.  But that’s what makes a house a home, right?  Let me know if you’d like to see more photographs of our humble abode – I would love to share them!

    Yes, please! I would love to see more pictures. My apartment is about twice as big as yours (simply because everything is big in Texas), but it somehow still feels super cramped. I am constantly having to clear up clutter and reorganize to make more room, as well as make my place look nicer. I’d love get more ideas on what to do with my (I’m almost ashamed to say this..) 1200 square ft. home.

      Hi Kaps,

      I painted the lids of the jars myself. I found both the jars and the paint off Amazon! Hope that helps!
