{ Simple & Wintery Christmas Kitchen }

Heyyy guys! Tuesday...you're blah!! It's been one of those day guys haha..although I'm not really laughing!! I mean it's "giving back Tuesday" & some people are just in the crankiest moods ever.. Anyways I'm back today with another area in our little suburban cottage that I decorated for Christmas! It's simple & coordinates well with the rest of our main level. I used simple pops of red & green with a mixed in wintery wonderland feel! I was digging the cool tones mixed in with the festive bold tones in this space! Our kitchen isn't huge by any means, but it's new, fresh & I love this little Christmas setup we've got going on! The dining room is still decorated like a cozy vintage bakery , so I wanted something that flowed nicely with that! Here is what I came up with... P.S. When I post our full 2015 Holiday Home Tour, you'll be seeing a few spaces in the kitchen I left out..hutch..shelf etc.. stay tuned!

I picked up this distressed white wood tray & matching box from Tuesday Morning store back in September! I love the simple distressed look & they go nicely with our cabinets! The little festive print is perfect, yet simple! 


Here is the matching tray! It's perfect for my husband's little coffee bar station! I'll be adding to this little area soon with some cold weather essentials!! The mat underneath I added because..actually I cant remember why, but I liked the design.  I did photograph it { Durr :/ }, but the tray under the coffee pot is a vintage Coco-Cola Santa  tray. I don't know why, but I'm loving the vintage coke goods, diner & warm feels this year!


I just filled this box with some honey & tea station goods! I love that little honey jar & it holds a special spot in my heart  :)!



I had these trees from +Hobby Lobby  in our home tour last year by the fireplace..but sine I did the total switch from neutral upstairs & red downstairs I had no place for these this year. I had stuck them outside on our little front porch, & then I randomly stuck them here & loved it..See sometimes the most random things go so well together! Effortless & cozy decorating is my game hehe!


That vintage tree plate is my ABSOLUTE FAV!! My mom picked it up for me a few years back while junkin in the north & I'm just in love with it. It's so simple, farmhouse & cottagey!! 







This is just part of our hutch. I'll be adding the full hutch to our 2015 Holiday Tour, but for now here it is. Simple goods fill it, with some pops of red & green and some mixed in thrifted treasures! This is another one of those pieces that I love!! It was a free find & I painted it with some leftover latex paint..gasp haha. I have a big surprise coming on the blog pry after the holidays to do with this piece!!!!!! I hope I can hold back until then haha! 

I hope you guys liked this styled spaced! So simple, thrifty & again you can get a feel on how I literally "shuffle" goods from one end of the house to the other for different looks. It's all about practical, cozy & simple decor around here! Happy Tuesday & since it's - Giving Tuesday - please consider donating to your local animal rescues/ shelters & help the voiceless { See my side bar under the * promote* link for some suggestions..THANK YOU!!!
