Is it Saturday already?? Seriously?? It seems like someone is stealing my days.. life seems to be on fast forward.. anyone feeling like me??
I have noticed something about me: I am happiest when my house is clean and de-cluttered. As a family of four, we each of us have our sh.. sorry, things all around the house, and those of you who have kids know how they don't move a finger when it comes to putting things where they belong!
The day my house is clean, I am calm, even zen... for on hour, at least, untill the girls come from school/kindergarten and they begin ... their stuff... I like the entire house to be clean and airy, but the place I really almost need to keep de-cluttered is the kitchen. Now that I have enough countertop space (around 7 metres) and that I have built-in appliances, I have enough space to keep the pots, plates, bowls and the other stuff a kitchen needs. Therefore, the countertop remains free, airy and de-cluttered. I have no other appliances on the countertop, and I will make my best to keep it so. Hubs was talking these days about buying a bread-machine, but I nixed it almost immediatly, and "because we'll eat too much bread and we'll get fat" wasn't the real reason, I almost immediatly began thinking about a cluttered kitchen.... didn't like it a bit, I tell ya!!
Here are some kitchens I love because they are so airy and clutter-free (I seem to associate clean and fresh with white kitchens...):
...kind of Swedish, right?
Oh, and I like modern kitchens!!
...gotta love a glass table...
...here I love the modern cabinets and the vintage rugs...
...things hidden in the cabinets make a clutter-free kitchen...
??? great, right???
And here is mine when all is in place:
