i was having one of those days — those stuck days when ideas just aren’t flowing freely. when that happens i stop everything and take an instagram. i do — i look around and try to find something to inspire me and it’s like a little exercise to get my brain moving again. today, i took this instagram of kumquats on my desk and then i was sort of free-associating with the color orange, and california and then kitchens, and it all just seemed like it could be a fun idea to put together — some fresh clean kitchens and add some citrus images for color. so that’s what this is all about. i love the look of open shelving in a nice, bright white kitchen, with white dishware and pottery, natural wood bowls and bread boards on display. add some fresh citrus and you’ve got a pretty california-inspired kitchen.
