My White Phase – In the Kitchen


Love these open shelves filled with white kitchen accessories - and the herringbone carrara marble backsplash is gorgeous!

Picasso had his blue phase.

I’m having a white phase – white kitchen filled with white kitchen accessories that are functional too (that scalloped bowl just served last night’s pasta).

I just realized it’s been three years since I posted a tour of my kitchen.  Things have changed (including my photography skills) but the bones stay the same and I love it as much as did the day I moved in.

You know I’m a color loving gal and my white kitchen lets me switch out colors, collections and accessories on a whim.

Maybe it’s the overabundance that was Christmas because ever since I packed away the last piece of tinsel, I’ve been craving simplicity.

Of course, I’m not completely abandoning color.

Flowers have been perking me up as I count down the days til spring.

And a hot cup of tea never hurt either.

Tulips brighten up any space - love the gold teapot

I’m loving mint tea right now.

What’s your favorite?  Or are you a die hard coffee drinker?


P.S. Follow me on Instagram where I share these snaps around my house and more.

  1. A white kitchen always looks so fresh and clean and adding some sort pop of color never hurts.

    Me and hubby are both die hard coffee drinkers; morning, noon and night and in between.

  2. Don’t you love how white can be such a subtle but strong “color” ? White makes such a statement, and with the touches of added color, white creates the perfect back stage to feature pops of color. I love your marble backsplash, so soft with just a hint of gray. I too, love tea, especially the licorice flavor. Chai tea is one of my favorites too. Will Spring ever get here?? I feel like I live in Alaska or Siberia! Your kitchen has such a welcome feeling…thank you for inviting us in for a cup of tea!

  3. I’ve been on this phase ever since I renovated my kitchen, so for me, it’s time to go for color. But which color? that’s the thousand dollar question. 🙂
