A Simple Christmas Kitchen

Do you like pomegranates?
We do! At least me and my daughter, we love pomegranates.
She was around 5 when she was introduced to this exotic fruit
while visiting a friend.
She came home asking me to go
and get her some more "pomogrades" :)

They were new to me too, while growing up in Colombia S.A. I never saw them. So, after buying a couple of pomegranates I was looking forward to give them a try.
Ha I wasn't really expecting the big mess I made while trying to open them! Like my daughter said: "It looks like a war zone"!  Our faces looked like we had a bad case of Chicken pox :D

Well, that incident didn't stop us from enjoying them, it's one of the fruits we now associate with Christmas, we always have them for Christmas ever since that time.

But oh well, that's not the only fruit we consume these days as you can see.

Oranges and apples are almost always in stash, and this time around they are Christmas decor ;)

I looked for a cute print to add to the caddy box and I love the one I found, it's for a chest but I think it goes pretty well here too ;)

The roman shade creates such a change! As you can see I'm having fun with fabrics. That's all you have to do, change the fabric and voila, you have a new shade! More about the shade right HERE. I don't have the name for that fabric, it was a remnant piece.

My kitchen is so small I cannot bring too many decorations in here. On the island there is always a box or platter for fruits and perhaps a floral arrangement, this time some pine branches from the yard.

The window sill is the perfect place to display those little Christmas decorations.

Adding Holiday words to your regular storage containers... Super easy ;)

Or maybe a ribbon around the utensil holder, easy right?

Because Christmas can be that simple!

  13. Your kitchen is lovely! That roman shade is perfect. So many beautiful details.

  14. Had to pin your shade redo, it's so perfect, love the idea. I have couple of those shades on our living room windows, maybe could add some fabric to them to give them a little change up, been same since we moved in. I just tend to change curtains for the seasons and have sheers over the shades. I love your kitchen, so pretty and bright. Your little decorations are incredible. Great ideas. Happy 2014
