One of the standout features of our new kitchen is, without a doubt, our black stainless KitchenAid appliances. We finally feel like we’re living in the 21st century because our old appliances barely turned on, ha!

Any time we bring something new into our home (especially investment pieces), I always research how to take care of them properly. Today I’m sharing tips on how to take care of KitchenAid black stainless steel appliances.

The day I discovered the Turkish rug in our bedroom, I knew it was The One. After designing the space to be predominantly white and blue, I knew I needed a pop. That pop had to be coral!
