We finished our actual kitchen a little over a year ago, but have just recently took the time to decorate it. We had an old table and hutch, switched it to new, collected decor pieces, and choose & completed back splash (I even helped with laying that!). For our decor, our inspiration was our engagement photos with a bright yellow airplane and the fun dishes we selected for our registry.
Bed Bath & Beyond
Charlie loves bright colors, and I love the mix of the bright with muted and cool colors like khaki & turquoise blue. These dishes were perfect for us, and paired with our engagement photos the space came together perfectly!
Here you can get a better look at our engagement photographs and how well they work with our dinnerware. You probably remember these square IKEA frames from here. We kept them around, but switched out the black and white ones to black and white photos from our wedding. I printed the photos using a 12x12 scrapbook layout in My Digital Studio, so PERFECT for this project. We carried out the squares with the dining table we selected and shelves we made into a buffet like piece (bottom right & see more below).

I love how well we have taken things we already had, collected a few new or new to us pieces, and meshed everything together to suit us both. This is definitely one of our favorite spaces with the fun colors and trinkets we love. Charlie enjoys cooking and I enjoy baking so it is important for us both to enjoy this space, and we most definitely do!
