kitchen shelves

IMG_4816

i finally filled the shelves we have in our kitchen above the sink. i really like the way exposed shelving looks in some kitchens (with stacks of plates, cups, and serving pieces) but it seemed a bit strange to do that with these small shelves. so i just kept them more as display shelves, and of course to hold my two cookbooks (i should get some more)

top shelf: collection of vessels from sara paloma (i got them when she was having a sale)

bottom shelf: i wish there was a light in there- it looks so dark. owl print from sharon montrose, a gnarled piece of driftwood i found at the dog beach in west vancouver, a soy sauce set from paige russell (i realize i shop on etsy a lot!), martha stewart cookies recipe book (covered in black textured paper), jamie oliver recipe book, and an iron crow i got from a store in vancouver.

our kitchen is new, so it would be silly to replace anything, but if i had my way (and money weren't an object) i would replace the green glass subway tiles with great white corian marble slab backsplash. my dream kitchen includes white cabinets, real wood cabinets, and white marble.

mmm, white marble is so divine! as it is for now though, your kitchen (or this little snippet) looks great!
