I love my kitchen. It is the room we spend the most time in and whether we are home alone or entertaining, the kitchen is the focal point of our house. If you have the space, I think seating is key to a great kitchen, even if it is just one or two strategically placed bar stools. Our normal nightly routine starts with me doing the cooking prep while James shoots off a few work emails with a glass of wine sitting the kitchen island. While cooking or chatting, nothing is happier than sitting in the kitchen with a glass (or two) of wine.
I chose my bar stools for how they seamlessly integrate into the kitchen, they really fit perfectly into the Island and are totally unobtrusive. You can have a lot of fun with your bar stools and they can really set the vibe for your kitchen and your home. One of my favorite websites, Chairish, has an incredible selection of Bar Stools for any aesthetic you are looking for. Below are some of my favorite kitchens I have come across online (thank you Pinterest) along with some bar stools that are similar in style. I personally have always gravitated towards a white kitchen, but I have to admit some of the ones below have me changing my tune. I think it is really important to play to the bones and space of your house, but also to its location. A kitchen at a beach house would be a lot different than one at a farm or in the city. Find what you love and what works in your space.
