FRESH SPRING KITCHEN DECORATING: BLUE + WHITE IS BACK!

It’s so hard to believe it’s April and how fast the months are passing! Even with the current situation we’re all in right now and spending all of our time at home, the days go just as fast for me. I keep very busy with work every day – it’s important to me to keep inspiring you! So with that, come and take a look at our spring kitchen!

I grew up surrounded my blue and white in our home, my mother is a collector and her love for this timeless decorating element has most definitely left an imprint on my design style, as well as my sisters. We all love it. I personally find so much comfort in using my blue and white pieces, and every time I bring them out, I’m reminded of that…the nostalgia it creates for me. 

Using my favorite blue and whites in our spring kitchen this season just feels so good to me right now. I forgot how much vibrancy it brings to this space! I went with neutrals over the winter (click for Christmas and January), which I also love, but it feels like such a breath of fresh air bringing the blues back in here for spring. It also feels like home…keep scrolling to tour our spring kitchen!

SPRING KITCHEN DECORATINGSpring kitchen decorating ideas with blue and white accessories.

Welcome to our spring kitchen! It feels so nice to finally wake up in the mornings and it’s light out! I crave this time of year and when the sun is shining, we get such beautiful direct sunlight in our kitchen until about noon. There’s just something about a sun-filled kitchen in the mornings!Spring kitchen decor, white and black kitchen with blue and white accesories. Last fall I purchased our vintage style rug, which is more neutral in tone than we’ve had in here previously. It has very soft, muted colors with cream, grey, blue and beige, so I decided to keep it in our spring kitchen as well. It ties together with all of the colors we have going on, which I really love.

STYLING SPRING SHELVES WITH BLUE + WHITEGorgeous kitchen spring decorating ideas featuring blue and white styled accessories throughout.

I don’t always restyle these shelves, and I do often like to keep them mostly neutral with white, silver and glass pieces. It’s a lot of shelf space to cover and I’m always leery of this corner looking too junky or overwhelming visually.

I do however, also love a layered maximalist look, so when I saw the most gorgeous dining room image from Serena & Lily (below) I knew what look I wanted to bring to our shelves this spring.It’s not the first time I’ve layered my blue and white for a look like this – you can visit my 2018 Spring home tour (click here), loaded with gorgeous blue, white and cheery yellow. I still love it today!Beautifully and thoughtfully styled open kitchen shelves for spring with a collection of blue and white chinoiserie pieces, silver pieces, glass apothecary jars and cake stands, and white accents. I went a little heavier with the blue and white this time around, filling all the shelves with some of my favorite pieces.

I’ve been collecting blue and white pieces for a long time. Some are from my mother, others I’ve found in various local stores, vintage stores and Chinatown. Most of my glass jars and cake stands are from my local HomeSense.Beautiful open kitchen shelf styling for spring with fresh and vibrant blue and white pieces mixed with silver, white and glass accessories.Spring kitchen decorating featuring gorgeous shelf styling using blue and white pieces mixed with cook books, apothecary jars, cake stand and silver pieces. Sometimes a heavily layered look can work perfectly and I just love this mix and how these shelves turned out for spring.



CREATING A FOCAL POINT IN YOUR KITCHENBeautifully decorated kitchen range for spring with ginger jars and blue and white chinoiserie pieces.

Our back wall is expansive and it serves as the focal point in our kitchen with subway tile wall, range hood and the symmetrical windows. I like to style around our stove using symmetry to play up the focal point even more. 

We keep our tea kettle and coffee pot here every day, but for photography’s sake I like to add a decorative element – I borrowed this arrangement from my spring living room tour (click here to see it). It’s s always a beautiful touch to add something here when you’re entertaining and not using the range.Decorate your kitchen range with a symmetrical display of ginger jars and blue and white vases.

I flanked the stove with the same white ginger jars you’ve seen here for the last few months, these are from Lauren Haskell Design, one of my favorite online shops. The white jars are the perfect decorative touch to style with.A gorgeous spring decorating statement around this kitchen range with ginger jars, cake stands and pretty faux flowers.

They’re so beautiful with the blue and white pieces I used – two cake stands with a ginger jar atop of each, and of course my borrowed arrangement, of what I think might be faux geraniums – one of my readers left me a comment on my living room post, because I wasn’t sure what they are – thank you for the insight!

CREATING A BALANCED LOOKBeautiful fresh spring kitchen decorating with blue and white accessories.

I may have more blue and white pieces than a lot of you may have, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t create the same feeling with a few key pieces of your own. A beautiful vignette on your kitchen table or island, and a couple of other touches around your kitchen is all you need to get the look.Beautiful white kitchen with black island, Chinese Chippendale barstools, brass lighting and hardware accented with gorgeous blue and white pieces for spring.From our large open shelves to the small open shelf that faces them from across the kitchen, adding touches of my blue and white pieces around our spring kitchen creates a balanced, cohesive look.

    In love with many of the beautiful items! The blog says to scroll and tap on the photos to shop, but when I tap on the photos nothing happens. If I tap twice it just directs to Pinterest. How can I shop?

      Thank you so much Sandi! That can happen sometimes if you click in the wrong spot, I’m not quite why. I’m so sorry! Try clicking toward the bottom of the image of the product – if you’re on a mobile phone or tablet, make sure to press hard enough, sometimes tapping too lightly results in nothing happening. If you’re on a desktop, make sure you click directly on the product or toward the bottom as well. If that doesn’t work, you can send me an email of what you’f like to see, and I’d be happy to send you direct links if you’d like, at [email protected]. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience! Thank you so much for reading with me! xo

    What color is the paint for your island? It is so pretty with your white (off white?) cabinets. Also, what is your perimeter cabinet color?

      Hi! Unfortunately I don’t have color names for either one…they were the only ivory (yes, off white!) and black choices available through our builder 10 years ago! I wish I could help! Thank you for stopping by! xo
