I hope you had a good weekend! We had a lot of friend activities and get togethers. So much fun, but now I need a day to recover. After a weekend of socializing I’m all about nesting quietly in my house with a good podcast. Ha! Not likely with the kids all home, but it sounds amazing doesn’t it!? :) Speaking of nesting I added a few of my N sale home staples to my kitchen last week and I’m loving the overall summer vibe! All of my favorite boards are back in the sale this year (and they added a couple more!). Serving boards, platters and bowls always make the best kitchen decor. At least that seems to be the case in my kitchen. :)
Here are my favorite boards/bowls from the sale this year:
These are the throws I came home with/have and love! The “linen gauze” throw is so beautiful in person! Perfect for the end of a bed – I’m going to use it in my master bedroom. The “softest throw” with fringe I actually bought a few weeks ago before the sale (never fails!). It’s beautiful draped over a chair or couch. I picked up another for a friend’s birthday gift. The “in the wild” print throw I’ve had for a few years and it is hands down my favorite throw to relax with for movie nights. I ended up buying my family all their own barefoot dream blankets for Christmas so they would stop stealing mine! I picked up a “cozy ribbed” barefoot dreams throw to use for a future gift for someone. They are always a hit. Lots of beautiful throws in the sale this year!
Back to the kitchen! One way I love decorating with boards and platters is by layering them on shelves or on my kitchen counter. Easy access if you want to use them to entertain plus they add a lot of style, dimension and visual interest. I placed this black marble serving board against my backsplash and then layered the smaller marble & wood serving board and it added so much personality to this spot!
This beautiful marble & acacia wood cake stand is included in the sale this year and I have loved mine! It has been sitting next to my stove for over a year now. I love switching out the candle and items I place on top of it for different seasonal decor. Beautiful cake stand!
You’ve all seen my round marble & acacia wood serving board. I’ve had the wood and white marble board for years and this year I was excited to add the black to my little collection. :) They are both so beautiful!
My marble lazy susan is another N sale favorite from past years. If I don’t have it out in my kitchen I use it in my panty. It always looks beautiful! Very tempted to get the black lazy susan too this year. I’ve loved having the white lazy susan sitting in this kitchen corner holding the oatmeal. :)
Sidenote: my citrus framed art is finally back in stock!
Moving along the kitchen counter..
This wood serving bowl is another Nordstrom favorite that is on sale! I’ve had it for years and use it mostly to hold fruit. I love the light shade of wood.
I snapped this pic with my phone (ignore the bad lighting!) to show you how the two sizes of bowls compare. I love them both! Long time favorites at my house.
Another board layered on a board. Clearly it’s a theme around here. :) This white marble serving board is the same as the back board I shared on my gold tray. They are so heavy and beautiful.. amazing quality for the price! A great gift idea too if you want to stock up on a few to have on hand. I’ve done that with marble boards in past years.
I put this vase and stems together to go in my entry, but I set it here on my kitchen counter while I was moving things around and then added some limes I had bought for my diet coke to this black bowl. As soon as I saw my faux eucalyptus stems next to the lemons and limes I knew they weren’t going anywhere for a while. Hello summer perfection!
Especially when you add the diet coke. :)
So that’s it! A few of my N sale favorites throughout the kitchen. Below are other HOME favorites from the sale this year. YEA that everyone can shop the sale now! A lot of my favorite clothes from the sale are still in stock! You can see them here:
