Our interior designer recently ordered these hanging pendants (seen above!) to replace the existing ones over our kitchen island, and has also proposed these counter stools (similar look for less here) to be upholstered on the inside in a practical, solid, treated green Kravet fabric and the outside in a green cane print. These relatively small changes to the kitchen are going to completely change the vibe and energy of the room, which we otherwise adore. It is a really well-designed kitchen for a busy family that spends about half of its waking time inside it.
Anyhow, these changes have me thinking about chic kitchen appliances, decor, and countertop pieces that might afford a similar face lift —
