I’m continuing to add a few fall touches here and there in our house. I’m trying not to clutter up the house up with pumpkins and decor that we then have to move around to actually use the space. Instead, I’m focusing more on textures, fresh cuttings from the yard, and practical items that are also pretty. I know me…practical?! I’m trying ha! With our house functioning as the Mr.’s office as well as mine now, I’m trying to keep things as simple as possible these days.
I’m so excited to be partnering with the Home Depot again for today’s post. Not only do they have great home decor, furniture, and lighting, but they also cover all your kitchen needs too! I actually ran there to pick up the tile for the pool house last week,(more on that soon!) so I had everything shipped directly to my local store. I was able to easily use their curbside pickup service, which is a great option if you don’t want to ship to your home.
I tend to spend more time cooking cozy meals in the fall/winter months, so now seemed like a great time to pick up a few fun fall kitchen accessories.
Not to mention, the Mr. and I have been married for almost 17 years so a lot of our wedding kitchen gifts have seen better days!
The mixed metal tones fit right in with my pots above the range plus, it’s a handy spot to keep a strainer when I’m making pasta. I’ve been on the hunt for a few more copper pieces like my beloved vintage pitcher/utensil holder and this fit the bill.
The leather handle on this cutting board is such a fun detail, and is perfect for adding a little warmth to our kitchen. It would be great for a charcuterie board as well.
Whenever people spy this little dog on my counter I get questions about it – I keep my watch and rings on it when I’m cooking or doing the dishes. My mom picked it up for me as a gift.
My new favorite item is this chunky cutting board. The wood tones are soo pretty!
It’s attractive enough to keep out on the counter all the time, and yet super practical. I can quickly chop up an apple for an after school snack. Which my kids will insist must be dipped in caramel, but whatever it’s still a fruit!
I’ve been on a big stoneware kick for fall (you’ll remember I bought that gorgeous vase from Home Depot a few weeks back) and this pitcher is the ideal island centerpiece. It looks great on its own, but it’s perfect with branches from the yard too. I’m thinking pine boughs for winter, or ooh holly branches maybe?
Since our pantry is on the other end of the kitchen, I like to keep a few staples that I cook with on hand next to our range. I had a marble pedestal here before, but the salt and pepper were constantly being knocked off. I wanted this area to be more user friendly.
I fell in love with this little salt cellar and pepper grinder. The stone adds a lot of texture, and I love how handmade and unique they feel. I like to add black details throughout our kitchen which picks up on the black wallpaper and countertops from our pantry.
I’m a sucker for little odds and ends like this! I love to cook but it’s even more enjoyable when your tools are pretty. You may be wondering if I need four salt and pepper grinders? And yes, yes I do! One has pink salt, one has sea salt, one for black peppercorns, one for white…a girl needs options!
I added these cute oil and vinegar jars which are great to have on hand for cooking.
I corralled it all with this round platter that will keep any spills at bay, and protect my counters. Now, this spot is ready to go for soup season.
I have massive glass jars in my pantry for flour and sugars, but I’ve been wanting some smaller ones to keep out here in the kitchen. These are the perfect size for baking soda etc…and the little details make them feel special.
They also seal airtight which you don’t always get with more decorative canisters. I put hot chocolate mix in one of them for my kids, and now that I think about it they would be perfect for a coffee/tea/hot cocoa station.
So there we go, just a few small touches to cozy up the kitchen. Bonus the Mr. won’t go crazy moving a pile of fake pumpkins around to make his morning coffee ;) Be sure to check out The Home Depot for all of your home decor needs.
