In Our (New, Shiny Red) Kitchen

After almost a year of rental living, we’ve bought a new home and are seeing red. We’re typically earth tone people and love green, but the previous owners picked a red palette for the kitchen and we’re making the most of it. We love the open layout, wood floors and, drum roll please, gas stove. The dishwasher is even quiet. We updated the lighting and added some seating, but don’t have plans to make other changes. It’s perfect the way it is, shiny red paint and all. We have two sinks, which is one more than we really need. And did we mention how spacious it is? Here’s what’s going on in our kitchen this month:

Some extra seating and a camera-shy dog

Some flowers from the front yard and a vase from an estate sale

An old friend

A new perch for Rocky

Some practical pottery

A wee bit of mint

A spice rack from Katherine’s parents

An antique buffet

Plenty of room for a dinner party

To get a peek inside other bloggers’ kitchens hop on over to Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for her monthly roundup.

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
