Stunning kitchens are easy to come by while scrolling through Pinterest or your Instagram feed, but how do you get the look for yourself? Most times, all kitchens need is an easy upgrade to their countertops and shelves. It may be the perfect time to swap out old cooking spoons with beautifully crafted olivewood utensils and display them in a ceramic container by the stove. Or consider adding a gorgeous cutting board to your arsenal — they work styling wonders leaned on an open shelf. From beautiful brass pepper mills to ceramic french presses, we’ve rounded up our favorite kitchen swag!
We are in love with everything Oakland’s Jacob May creates. This bleached maple knife strip with brass hardware is absolutely a must.
For each of these wood and slate boards purchased, FEED will donate 23 meals to families in the USA.
These copper and enamel measuring spoons will add instant style to your baking game.
When it comes to function and form some of the best tools out there are from the Japanese. This delicate yet functional grater is a beauty.
From mixing spoons to spatulas, update your cooking utensils with these gorgeous Olivewood utensils.
Here are some more gorgeous kitchen items that will make baking, cooking and hanging out in the kitchen so much more stylish and enjoyable! We especially love the spices and chic cruet from Oakland’s Umami Mart, and the tumbler from Berkeley’s Luvhaus.
