Polyvore Monday | April 23

I’m a little late in posting Polyvore Monday today. We went to the coast for the weekend, and the weather was too beautiful to be inside on the computer. Plus, when I woke up this morning, I felt like I’d been hit by a bus.

Who gets a head cold in April? This girl.

The mixture of NyQuil and only a few hours of sleep the night before left me wondering which way was up when I woke up this morning. Not to worry, I’m feeling much better now after another sunny day, tea, and even some fresh strawberries this morning. So let’s go!

In my dream world, our kitchen would look like this:

But this is reality, and let’s be honest, chances are, my kitchen will never look exactly like that (there’s no way I could ever talk the hubby into an all-white kitchen).

I do love our kitchen and all the space it provides, but it could use a little pick-me-up, here’s my idea: (click on the image to be redirected to Polyvore and see the sources)

That banquette from World Market I love! Throw some pillows on it that you can change with the season, plus it’s  not only functional, but cute.

The art is also from World Market and adds a nice punch of color. I’m trying to figure out:

1) if I like the silverware idea or if it’s cheesy;

2) how I could somehow make that myself.

I’m loving the navy/yellow/and gray color scheme right now. It’s a little bit modern, a little bit nautical, and perfect for spring. If only I had the courage to do a bold navy on our walls.

The ‘Beat It’ print is super fun, but right now, I have | these | hanging by our pantry.

Every kitchen needs a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. In so many pretty colors, it’s hard to pick just one, but the silver is timeless.

I adore that kitchen cart from Ikea even more now that I saw | this | makeover. Such a fun way to add storage to a kitchen with little space.

Those mixing bowls from Crate & Barrel are my absolute favorite!

This Amy Butler rug by Chandra would be fun under the dining room table, and dark enough to hide any spills.
