Rustic Coziness

In the midst of all the back to school/switching school districts craziness, I found myself playing around with furniture in my house instead of facing the said craziness.  I've recently changed things up in the kitchen area by adding new white chairs and accessories that you can read about in this post.  Our eat-in kitchen area is a pretty small space but it didn't feel as cozy as I thought it could.  So I added this old, wooden stand that used to belong to my mom, but has been living in my classroom until now.  It's definitely worn and would look so fun painted a bright color, but I'm actually loving the rustic look just the way it is.  Wood tones add such warmth to a room and since it's paired with some modern white accents, I don't find it dating the room at all.

It fits perfectly in between the window and the kitchen peninsula, I just love it.  I topped it with the tray, the cream and sugar set and the plant that used to sit on the kitchen table.  I also added a lamp because I love lamp lighting, even in a kitchen.

I'm looking forward to adding some graphic art on the wall eventually.  I love the feel of the dining area below.  It's an image I pinned from Young House Love a while back.  The wood tones, the mixture of materials and textures, the pops of color, the graphic art...I love it all.

I'm striving for a similar feel in our eat in kitchen area. 

I think once we change the light fixtures, add some art, and paint the whole area light gray, we'll be on our way to rustic coziness!
