Home tour: my Christmas kitchen

The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in the house: it has that lovely country feeling and it’s spacious enough to accommodate the needs of all of us. We spend a lot of time in here, baking yummy treats, drawing and doing crafts while listening to music. I wanted my kitchen to look even cosier this Christmas and I might have gone a bit overboard in terms of decoration (oooppss).

The only thing my kitchen lacks is natural light given that it’s in a basement, I tried to solve that by adding a curtain of starry lights which I turn on as soon as the sun sets. The big window wasn’t complete yet so I got two plain (and cheap) wreaths from Amazon to which I have added a simple Christmassy ribbon. They “fill” the space quite well and don’t make the ensemble look too busy.

On the window sill I have added several decorations: two identical mini trees on the side of my “washing basket”, a hurricane vase with pout pourri and a candle, some tiny wooden reindeers, cinnamon sticks, pretty cookie jars and more candles. In the kitchen I went for a tradition theme in the kitchen as well so the dominant color is red with touches of white and green.

In the evening I light up all the candles (which are festive spiced scents) and the house smells heavenly.

Mince pies cannot be missing in a festive kitchen, ready to greet an unexpected visitor or quenche an afternoon crave. Clotted cream is, of course, always in the fridge together with a bottle of sparkling wine: there is always a reason to cheer during this season!

Being Italian means that panettone is another must, can you spot mine?Christmas kitchen

Red winter berries and flowers make everything brighter and add a touch of opulence.

I also like to change my tea towels according to season (crazy right?) and I keep the prettiest well in sight, in a pretty little wicker basket.

A soap and cream dispenser in a festive shade is a must to make sure that the Christmas spirit is throughly implemented!
