Wax paper. This oldie but goodie, the ugly stepsister to plastic wrap, is back in my drawer after an absence of many years. But wax paper lies flat on the counter to sift flour onto, and it minds its own chemicals when microwaving dishes. Some plastic wrap fits so tightly over the bowl that it holds in big gusts of steam — an open invitation to a burn when opening.
Designer Robin Baron gave this elegant country kitchen the perfect finishing touch with an ornate scalloped valance above the sink. “I always say ‘great design is in the details’ and this beautiful valance is a perfect example,” says Baron. “I used the detail of iron hooks to create the dramatic pleating in lieu of a traditional pole and embellished the classic linen floral fabric with tassel trim, and matching tape, giving weight and importance to this country-inspired valance.”
For staples such as flour and sugar, matching canisters are a great way to bring a bit of style to your space. If you have a pantry, you can use the same type of canisters or jars in there, too.
Quality design elements like a kitchen island or bar area equipped with choice stainless steel appliances can greatly improve the functionality and appearance of your outdoor kitchen. Start by considering the equipment you'll use the most. Grills, sinks and refrigerators are natural choices. Extras like pizza ovens, rotisseries and side burners may sound like must-have add-ons, but don't lose sight of what's most important to the outdoor cook.
Microwave. I don't have a fancy one, don't need a fancy one. Forget the word "oven" — this is a substitute for the top of the range. I cook vegetables in it, melt butter and chocolate, and, yes, I've saved a zillion dollars reheating coffee, rather than making a whole new pot. Just the time saved not washing dishes more than pays for this handy, albeit mundane, convenience.
Creating a coffee station on your kitchen counter is another great way to bring smart style to your space. Designer Kerrie Kelly has gathered her supplies, such as mugs, ground coffee and the coffee maker, in one corner. You could even add some pretty gold spoons or tea supplies if you like to drink tea as well.
This kitchen by designer Jessica McClendon is a great example of how you can use cutting boards as decor. You can use a variety of different types and shapes of boards, including wood and marble, then lean them against your backsplash.
