my kitchen is screaming for a makeover!

ever since we got our new refrigerator, i have been thinking that our kitchen needs a major overhaul. pretty much everything is outdated, and definitely not my taste, and those walls i painted lime green a few years ago have got to go. what was i thinking?

i recently found a lot of great items at world market that match my sense of style that i like to describe as industrial meets vintage meets eclectic. i really don't know how to describe it, but i do know that i love the use of metal, wood, and glass as main elements with pops of color. i also love adding vintage with pieces like canning jars, wire hanging fruit baskets, and wooden bowls...all things i remember my mom having in her kitchen when i was very young.

my world market kitchen

1. glass yorkshire dispenser
2. 6 bud vases with wire caddy
3. three-tier hanging wire basket
4. jackson kitchen cart
5. yellow pig serving bowls, set of 2
6. plum fleur de lys highball glass, set of 4
7. red schoolhouse counter stool

i loved "window shopping" for everything i put together and enjoyed making this world market pinspiration board of all my favorite items. i have the best spot for that kitchen cart, with those bud vases on top filled with all the best flowers, and at least two of those red stools. that wire basket would hang right next to it filled with all of the yummiest fruits. my favorite is always adding pops of color, so that red stool fits in nicely. let's be honest, red is one of those colors that works with everything. don't believe me? ask me to explain that one to you! {grin}

even with the simplicity of a kitchen redo (which is exactly what i like), i can see myself whipping up some wonderful things in a kitchen like this during the upcoming fall and winter holidays, and all year round. i found an assortment of items that fit within my budget but i think i might just add a few of these to my holiday wish list. what would you add to your wish list?
