This week was all about the kitchen; the ideal space is inviting and warm, that’s chic while remaining utterly casual.

I’m a firm believer that your home and it’s design — especially it’s design — can have a huge impact on your mood. A clean, beautiful room just makes you happy, it’s science.

Throw in a Kilim rug — check out a few favorites in this post — a farmhouse sink, and a few bright touches and you’ve got yourself a chic AF kitchen. Shop the look below.
