My favorite room… the kitchen

HI everyone! Do you have a favorite room in your house? Lindsay from White Buffalo Styling Company is hosting a fun series and asked us to share our favorite room in our homes!

Blogger home tours

Welcome if you are coming over from Simple Stylings!

My favorite room is my kitchen, though that might be quickly replaced by my family room in the next month!

I wanted to share with you how our kitchen looks on a daily basis minus the sink full of dishes and junk piled on the island πŸ™‚ .

Jennifer Rizzo's kitchen

We first renovated our kitchen on a budget in 2010. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years already! Our wood counter tops are still amazing and have held up wonderfully after 4 years!White kitchen with vintage chandelier

We recently swapped out the converted bathroom cabinet island for a vintage workbench so we had more prep space.Blue canning jars with zinnias make a pretty counter display

I remember being afraid to paint our dark cabinets white and now I am so happy we did it!

kitchen sink view towel bar on the blank drawer is a great idea

I love how the light comes in through the window in the morning.

The sink light was a converted flea market find.marigolds in a cow creamer

Like I’ve said before, every home needs one pig creamer. I love changing out little fun things on the window sill.

And I am never without two of my favorite kitchen products!

Murchison and Hume in Original Fig

It smells amazing!

White kitchen with colorful accents

I like to use what I have as decor.

cutting boards as display

The stacked cutting boards get regular use and hide an outlet.

cute jar for a sugar holder

I also like to re-use these cute little jelly jars for sugar. Bottle rack for mugs

I recently moved my bottle rack onto the island for easy mug access and I think they make a pretty display.

This way they get used too.I like drinking out of cute mugs in the morning. I might need to start the “one in one out” rule soon.vintage cutting board with meaningful dates as kitchen display

I had found these vintage cutting boards at the thrift store and I have a special date stenciled on them. πŸ™‚cute sign from Homegoods

And I found this cute sign at Homegoods a few weeks ago and I knew it needed to come home with me! It was perfect!

Thank you so much for taking a tour of my favorite room! Head on over to one of my favorite blogs Number Fifty-three.

  1. Jen- So happy to have found you through the tour! Your kitchen is beautiful…Love all of the organic, vintage elements…ahem that marble working slab on the island!! What a cozy, functional space! xo

  2. Hi Jen,
    Ohhhhhh how I always love seeing your beautiful kitchen. Just gorgeous and bright and cheerful. I love your cup holder with all the beautiful and colorful cups. That is really sweet.

  3. I love it! I first found your blog several years ago right after you did the kitchen redo! I’ve always loved it πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for joining in!

  4. I searched the internet and could not find a source for the Hoboco Soap Co. Did you make this or is it available to purchase?



    1. I actually find it at Homegoods from time to time and buy it out when they have it. I looked at the website on the bottle , it’s Homeandbodyco.com

  5. I love your cheerful kitchen and am sooooo excited about your book. I just placed my pre-order. Can’t wait! πŸ™‚

  6. Love your kitchen! How did you paint your hinges the same color as your cabinets? I want to do that as well and am not sure which paint to use; the paint I used on the cabinets or spray paint (that I am not sure with match exactly). Thanks!!!
