Show N' Tell – Emily Jackson's Kitchen
It’s here! Our new website is finally live! We couldn’t think of a better way to welcome you all to our new site than by sharing this beautiful kitchen we helped furnish and style for the power-house woman behind The Ivory Lane fashion blog, Emily Jackson.
In yesterday’s post we shared our design inspiration behind this project and how we planned to transform Emily’s newly built kitchen into her dream come true (check that out here if you missed it). The exciting thing about this kitchen reveal is how you can actually shop everything from this space right here on our website. Pretty neat, huh?! So be sure to check out the shopping section when you’re done oohing an ahhing over these pics.
Now…let’s get to it, shall we? As mentioned in yesterday’s post, Emily’s kitchen was beautiful to begin with, but she asked us to add a little more personality and put all those “finishing touches” in place. While all of the accessories did a lot to pull the space together, it’s actually the finer details we added that (we feel) made the biggest impact.
Remember those over-the-knee burgundy suede boots of Emily’s we mentioned yesterday? Well they just so happened to inspire a lot of what you’ll see in this space. These custom made roman shades and draperies add just the right amount of color to her kitchen. The way the fabric ombre’s from that deep burgundy down into a soft white gives it that bold-yet-subtle look we were going for.
She had a lot of open-shelving throughout the kitchen, so we made sure that every shelf served a specific purpose. After all, your kitchen should be just as functional as it is beautiful. We turned this little nook next her kitchen sink into a cookbook library, complete with a lighted cookbook stand (it’s really an art easel…but isn’t this a genius application!?). There’s something about cookbooks that just makes a kitchen feel homey. Don’t you think?
We took a few tips from Emily’s own fashion sense and lined these glass-front cabinets with the most amazing Kelly Wearstler wallpaper. It’s like that pocket square or hidden lining of a jacket that sneakishly hides in the background, but is full of color and life. And just look at how those white dishes now pop against the background! Major win.
This particular section of shelves is dedicated to all things baking. When Emily told us she and her daughter frequently bake together, we knew we needed to design a space that was full of all things petite, colorful, and bake-worthy. Her daughter has already named this her “baker acre”…adorable!
In the dining room we started fresh. A new light fixture, new window panels to match the kitchen, new dining table, and the most stunning art to offset all the white. We’re a little bit obsessed with those dining chairs, too! Because this is her only dining space in the home, it needed to function for every day dining, but also sophisticated enough to host a dinner party now and then. Mission accomplished.
Last, but certainly not least, is this beautiful Butler’s Pantry. It too had great bones for us to work with. The navy cabinets inspired us to curate a collection of smokey and glamorous serving ware that certainly puts on quite a show. We love how this room is like the hidden jewel of the whole kitchen. It’s the perfect spot to display those more “unique” pieces and really make them feel special. Swoon.
We hope you love how this space came together as much as we do! If there’s something that caught your eye, but sure to head on over to our new online shop and get it for yourself! You can shop each area of this kitchen online here:
