While we were working on our new kitchen, all I wanted to do was finish it. First, so I could resume cooking… but mostly so I could style it! The prop stylist in me was chomping at the bit to display some of my favorite ceramics, textiles, and art pieces in our newly finished kitchen. I’ve shared so many photos of it on Instagram and I always get questions about where things are from. So I figured it was time to share a post all about how to style a kitchen with a full source list of my favorite kitchen accessories + similar items.

Here’s one thing that I’ve never told you: I loathe painting rooms. I am quite literally the least patient person in the world, so doing anything that requires extensive prep work is basically an impossible task for me. When I tried to paint our bathroom white last winter to make it look less derelict, I got paint everywhere. Not only just my entire body, but the shower head, the back of our toilet (???), and the cat. BUT there is good news on the horizon: I’m here to tell you that I will never paint another room by myself again thanks to Paintzen!

One of the top questions I’ve been asked since revealing our kitchen renovation is about our Polycor marble countertops! So many people have inquired about the care of the stone.

You still get that beautiful, striking veining and dramatic tones, but with the quality and easy level of care that people expect from another stone, like granite. So let’s dig into what is so special about this stone, plus how to care for it!

Let’s be real here for a sec: selecting a shade of white paint for our house is one of the most stressful decisions I’ve made! We have white upper cabinets in the kitchen, so I wanted to get it right. In my opinion, nothing is worse than shades of a color that don’t match. I’m totally the person who will wear all black, but be grumpy that my shades of black aren’t the same. I know, I know… so delicate. Anyways, let’s dig into some tips I’ve learned from Sherwin-Williams about how to choose white paint!
