Today’s post comes with a bit of a disclaimer: this Seattle loft’s kitchen is less than ideal. It hasn’t really been updated since the ’90s and the countertops are a bizarre shade of blue-ish green Formica. I did my best with it though! Maybe a delicious meal and strong cocktail was prepared here…
There are some good bits to the kitchen, too: a butcher block island, stainless steel appliances, and lots of brick. And at least it was painting a neutral color!
I’ve always wanted a kitchen island so that there could be a spot for people to hang out while I cook. These white metal stools were totally perfect.
I kept my kitchen accessories neutral, too, opting for white, natural wood, and lots of ceramic. If I did add color, it was to complement the piece of art hanging above my vintage bar cart.
Every home needs a bar cart, don’t you think? Learn more about this one here. I decked mine out in all sort of essentials: my favorite booze, quirky vintage glassware, a radio, and an old book on mixing cocktails.
