Since our kitchen is mostly neutral with kashmir white counters, white cabinets, and a marble backsplash, I’m adding in color with accessories. I started with my no sew roman shade from a mini blind and just got these fun canisters.
I love that they add a bit of whimsy to the kitchen, and you can see them when you first walk in the door. So in a way the set the tone for the whole house. Hi everyone, we’re a little green, and a little fun, and we like to look nice, but it’s what’s inside that counts. See, just like us.
They coordinate nicely with the roman shade.
Since I don’t bake all that often, but we do make rice with about half of our meals, I filled them up with our favorite types of rice. I always found it a pain to go digging through our big bulk bags to get rice, so the canisters are not only pretty, but they simplify our dinner prep. Score. The big one is white jasmine rice, the medium is brown jasmine rice, and the small is brown basmati rice. I really should have put a brown rice in the big one, because that would be healthier to encourage us to eat more of it, but white jasmine rice is just so good it deserves the big spot.
We DIYed the entire kitchen, so this was a little treat and a bit of a splurge for being almost done. I searched high and low for fun green canisters and ended up finding these lovely polka dotted beauties on Amazon.
It was between these, and the striped version.
I really wanted to get two dots and one striped, but no option for that :(. I do love my dotted ones though! And when I was writing this post and I went back to Amazon to find the links, I found this matching striped and polka dotted bowl. I want!
There’s actually a whole line of these Terramoto striped and polka dotted kitchen pieces. I never realized how much I like green dots and stripes. Learned something new.
And, I announced the other day I’ll be hosting another paint color party on Involving Color on the first Monday of the month, and I wanted to let all of you know as well! Hope to see you over there on April 2nd!
