With the holidays upon us, and entertaining at home looking a little different this year, there is no better time to organize your kitchen and make it more functional as well as stylish.

With our kitchen renovations just being completed, I was excited to be able to partner with one of my favorite stores, Crate and Barrel, where I was able to choose pieces that blended beautifully in my signature  modern vintage decorating style. From dining room table decor to kitchen storage and more, Crate and Barrel will make your home shine this season while creating unforgettable holiday memories. 

Here are some of the items I chose to help bring organizing and style into our newly renovated kitchen.


If you follow me on Instagram you know that we absolutely love a good cup of coffee in our home. So creating an all encompassing space that would serve as a coffee and tea bar in our home was one of the things at the top of our must have list.

We chose this De’Longhi ® Digital Combi Espresso Machine that not only serves up espresso but you can also make a regular cup of coffee as well as a Latte. Want to try a pour over coffee maker? Give this Chemex 8-Cup Coffee Maker one a try or if a you don’t want to go fancy, try this coffee maker. This makes a perfect all in one and a perfect holiday gift. Want a little more color to your coffee maker, try this Haden Silt Green Dorchester Kettle. To make grinding our favorite Cuban coffee bean easier, we chose this Cuisinart ® Supreme Grind ™ Automatic Burr Mill.



The burr grinders produce uniform grounds to ensure even brewing and ideal flavor with 18 grinding options from ultra-fine to extra-coarse, it helps you to make the perfect pick- me- up cup of jo. To round off our coffee and tea bar is this beautiful Marin White Creamer and Sugar Bowl with Lid as well as this seriously darling Beehive Glass Honey Jar with Wood Dipper as well as these Weck Canning Jars to store our freshly ground coffee and condensed sweet milk, which I add to my coffee (love that they seal so tight to keep the air out). Also check out this Coffee Storage Canister …all perched prettily on this French Kitchen Marble Tray. 


We love making butter and toast in our home. I didn’t have the space to have an appliance garage to help keep them organized, so opting for the Smeg Matte White Toasterenables the kitchen to still look modern/vintage and purposefully organized with this. (p.s. the matte white Smeg toasteris a Crate and+Barrel exclusive).

This leads me to organizing a must have thing that goes with toast. This super chic and casual French Kitchen Marble Butter Keeper is the perfect way to serve up butter for your toast in style. Also check out this Beck Serving Board and this Covered Butter Dish Having guests over? This is beautiful enough to leave on the counter for all to see. Also keeping our counter top organized is this Yamazaki Tosca White Tabletop Spice Rack that helps to keep essential spices, seasonings and sauces easily and quickly accessible.


Even though we have a lot of drawers in which we could just put all our cookware in, I found this Expandable Bamboo Flatware Tray the perfect accessory to help to keep some of my most reached for cooking utensils organized and in reach to the stove. It’s been so helpful so far!

Crate and Barrel functions to help people love how they live in moments that matter and is on a mission to make the holiday season one that is organized and seamless at home. Curating lifestyle inspiration for the home, the brand works to connect the creative work of artisans and designers to people and places around the world.
