My love of a cozy home is apparent! For those of you that have been here for a while, you know that there are certain areas of our home that I love to style and update frequently. This cozy kitchen corner is one of them.
I am not entirely sure why this kitchen corner is one of my favorite spaces in our home. It just makes me feel cozy and happy. When we recently installed beadboard in this area, the cozy meter flew off the charts for me!
Our original plan for this cozy kitchen corner was to add wooden hanging pegs to the trim piece going along the top of the beadboard (similar to this shelf we installed in another part of the kitchen). However, when I stumbled upon these gold sweet home signs with hooks at Target, I began to imagine something slightly different here. Instead of installing the hanging pegs on the trim, we hung 3 of the sweet home wall signs on the beadboard (I always like to group items in odd numbers). I absolutely adore the character, the pop of gold, and the functionality these signs add to this little corner.
The signs include 2 gold screws and 2 anchors each, however the signs I purchased were missing a couple of each. Instead of returning the signs or searching for gold screws, we used regular black screws and applied Rub ‘n Buff in European Gold to match the screws to the color of the signs.
We did not anchor the screws into the wall because we screwed the signs into the beadboard. However, I would recommend using anchors if you install these signs on drywall or sheetrock.
I kept the styling of this kitchen corner very simple for summer by adding a market bag and a couple of towels for the pool. The French door in this corner of our kitchen leads out to the pool area so this is a great spot to hang essentials for swimming and sunbathing. These wall hooks have become very convenient!
I hung these blue stripped towels from Hearth & Hand by Magnolia on two of the hooks. The fringe detail on the towels is so pretty and the blue stripes are absolutely perfect for summer! Blue is one of my favorite colors to use in our home during the summer months. You can see more ways I incorporate blue into our home for summer, here.
The market bag I hung on one of the hooks is also from the Hearth & Hand by Magnolia line. It’s a great summer bag for the beach, or a trip to the farmer’s market, or for packing a picnic. I love the organic texture of this bag and the coziness it adds to this corner.
These sweet home signs would look amazing hung by a front door as a single sign or grouped together in multiples. The hooks are the ideal size to hang keys, leashes, hats, bags or coats.
To complete this kitchen corner (for now!) I added a new, neutral area rug. I wanted a rug here that was sturdy enough to soak up wet feet coming in from the pool, but a rug that was cozy too. This rug is the perfect fit for this corner!
This cozy kitchen corner is not finished! We will be installing wallpaper above the beadboard by the end of the summer. I cannot wait to show you the wallpaper that we chose for our kitchen and entryway. Stay tuned. It is going to make this space even cozier…if that’s even possible!
