Guest Post – Distinct Kitchens

Hi! I’m Julie Bortnick, of the fashion and lifestyle blog, from prosecco to plaid and I’m here on the Design Shuffle blog to talk about the various ways you can spice up your kitchen space.

A home can have fifteen rooms and I can guarantee the most used would be the kitchen. For some reason, people tend to always gather around the kitchen counter. There may be an extremely comfortable couch just a couple feet away, but guests would rather stand and chat in this beloved room. With that being said, I believe the kitchen is the focal point in a house.

Of course, kitchens need to have the essential appliances, but beyond that I think this is the room to get creative in and think outside the box. Spice up the backsplash, install unique lighting, and accessorize the counters.

Stone Textile

I love the punchy backs plash and how the silverware is displayed on the counter.

The contrast of the light colored bar stools with the dark kitchen works perfectly.

The shelving in this kitchen is not only functional, but also chic and simply modern.

Retro Kitchen

The bold light fixtures hang over the counter and give the kitchen a contemporary-retro feel.

Modern Kitchen

I love the rows of drawers underneath the roomy counter, and the stone on the wall gives the contemporaneous kitchen a bit of a rustic feel.


White Kitchen

The simplicity of the plants right outside the kitchen window paired with the white cabinets and dark floors make the whole room feel beautifully clean.

 Lime Kitchen

 A pop of color splashed on the cabinets makes every morning feel bright and cheerful. 

Decorating a room is such a fun, exciting experience, and especially when it’s the most popular room in the house.  Don’t be afraid of color, prints, and texture; experiment, mix and match, and make your kitchen stand out. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7
