Stylish Kitchen Accessories

West Elm Canisters and Dishes

Designing custom kitchens are some of my favorite projects. There’s something about the durability, permanence, and functionality of a kitchen that I love. But, I don’t think that a great kitchen should stop with beautiful cabinets and a stylish backsplash: beauty in a kitchen should extend to every part. Whatever is sitting on your stove, next to your sink, or anywhere else should compliment the rest of the space instead of taking away from it. In essence, my dream kitchen is one where every part, from the largest refrigerator to the smallest teaspoon, serves a functional purpose, but also exudes stylish living.

Here are some of my favorite components that help achieve just that…

I love marble on countertops, floors, and fireplace surrounds, so why stop there? These marble kitchen accessories are some of my favorites. I adore the feel of honed marble; even better, the classic white and gray palette will go with pretty much any other kitchen accessories, especially stainless.

Stylish Utensils

While there are many lovely stainless kitchen utensils and accessories out there, those designed by Jasper Morrison are at the top of my list. They are simple and elegant, without any unnecessary embellishments to get in the way or get crusted with food. All of Jasper’s products have a modern sensibility to them due to their clean lines and no-fuss design, but they fit as seamlessly in a traditional kitchen as they would a modern one.

When West Elm jumped on the kitchen accessories train, we all knew good and affordable things would happen. These vintage style canisters and dishes will add charm to any cooking arena. What a pleasant sight it is to open a cupboard and see these super stylish canisters instead of, like my college days, bags of flour and sugar. This collection is so hip that you may not even want to hide it in the cupboard; instead, install exposed shelving just to showcase your wares.

Stainless Appliances

To go with your Jasper Morrison designed utensils, I also recommend going with stainless steel appliances. White or black versions of the same types of appliances tend to have a less sophisticated look, and can make your kitchen feel dated. Using all stainless steel appliances is a great way to mix and match brands (depending on your preference), while still maintaining a cohesive look amongst your different choices of appliance brands.
