Since quarantine started, the SOS team has been all around the kitchen creating new dishes, trying out new recipes, and upgrading it with these tips and products. After sharing an intimate corner of our bedrooms, we decided to show you the favorite corner of our kitchens.
My kitchen is small but quaint. We cook all the time especially now so it’s a constant flow of chopping, doing dishes and organizing but I think it is important to also make this space feel open, warm and somewhere you can drink a glass fo wine with while stirring the evening’s pasta sauce. For me, kitchens are a place where every one loves to gather, chit chat and enjoy good food sometimes more than in the living room. I sure do miss these kitchen gatherings.
I love vintage art gallery posters and have them framed all over the house – this one is a vintage Chagall. I love the pastel yellow to brighten the space.
I pack my houseware with locally made pieces from Salamat as well as found objects from my travels.
Lastly, I am all about fresh produce and know that is quite a luxury during these times so in the hopes of also supporting a small business, we do a weekly produce pickup from County Line Harvest. They have pick-up locations across LA that are safe and convenient.
I’m not really in love with my dark countertops so I try to brighten it up with my kitchen accessories. This little corner is my first stop in the morning, I keep an electric kettle here (not seen in the photo) to make lemon water, then I proceed to brew coffee using my Bialetti Moka Pot that I’ve had for years now. I use these airtight ceramic canisters to store my caffeine essentials. The bigger canister is for my tea leaves and the smaller one is for my coffee beans.
The number one reason I moved into the apartment I live in now was this remodeled kitchen. I love the white modern finish and the spacious marble countertops. Some of my favorite objects are wood dinnerware and cutting boards, my espresso maker, Muji kettle, and the white and blue striped tea towel that I’ve been using since college. The instant pot and rice cooker are my most trusted helpers for meal prepping. I found plants to be the most versatile decor that works for everywhere around the house and especially kitchen.
My favorite corner of the kitchen is where these beautiful woman vases by Andrew Kollar are. I also decorated the shelf with a few cookbooks and empty glass bottles. Fruits and vegetables are a great way to brighten up the countertop, along with gold decorative bowls.
