Dream Kitchen: Natalie from Natalie Merrillyn

Natalie was sweet enough to share her dream kitchen with us. I could not wait to see what she came up with. We tend to have really similar style so I was not surprised that her dream kitchen would be filled with lucite and gold accents.

Hello Long and Short of It readers! I'm Natalie and I'm thrilled to be here discussing one of my favorite design topics -- kitchens. {P.S. Isn't Jessie's kitchen going to be incredible? I can't wait to see how everything turns out!}

A few must-haves for my dream kitchen:
  • bright + open
  • something lucite
  • elements of sage + gold
  • cool lighting

Get the look:

ONE KitchenAid 5-Quart artisan stand mixer in pistachio {have + love! -- $350} TWO Lucite bar stool {$119} THREE Gold mirror {$3,465 -- steal! Find more here or here.} FOUR Thomas O'Brien large Hicks pendant {$525} FIVE Midas Collection gold glassware {$30-$85} SIX Bust planter pair {$550}

Thanks so much, Jessie, for having me! And please be sure to stop by Natalie Merrillyn for more inspiration!

  9. Natalie's kitchen is a TOTAL dream! So lux but comfortable + clean, so perfect.

  10. Cool lighting will definitely make a kitchen look bright and big. Putting up some cute, little chandeliers is also a good choice. Another good option is to put up some windows in the area to make the room brighter. By doing that, you make use of natural lighting and forego the use of electricity in the morning.
