Thank you to CSN Stores for participating in the Goodie Goodie Gumdrops Earth Week Event!
Spring is in the air and there's a spring in my step. After the dullness of winter, I am so ready to revamp my home decor. Particularly in my kitchen. We have a really nice kitchen island that desperately needs some new seating. So, I've been checking out the counter stools over at CSN Stores' AllBarstools.com.
I'm one for a more modern style to coordinate with our stainless, black and chestnut theme. I like sleek, slim and simple yet elegant. I think I prefer a stool with a back for support but also don't want to take up too much room. What do you think? Once our tax check arrives, we'll definitely be investing in some new stuff for our beautiful new house.
Along with some new stools, I really want to get some new kitchenware. Where better to go than Cookware.com?! I'm loving this pot rack to hang above our island. It's stylish and affordable!
I'm also drooling over this Cocoa Latte maker. Mmmm...did I just say latte...?
One of my favorite recent kitchen purchases, however, has been my bamboo butcher-block style cutting board. Not only is it incredibly durable, practical and "green", but it is gorgeous. I leave it out as a display on my island because it gives my kitchen a touch of natural beauty. At every get-together we host, we get comments from people wanting to know where we bought it. We use it just about everyday and absolutely love it.
This African Congo Cutting Board from Totally Bamboo is a similar model, with colorblock wood and parquet end grain. Made of naturally grown bamboo, this board is made with food-safe non-formaldehyde adhesives, no dyes or stains and low-impact biodegradable packaging. Totally Bamboo is known for its high quality, sustainable bamboo products and exceeds the demands of environmentally-conscious consumers around the world.
