Hey friends! Can you believe it’s already December? Christmas will be here before we know it. Now we just need some snow. We usually have snow by now in Utah so it’s not really feeling much like Christmas. At least not outside. But inside we’re in full on Christmas mode. I stuck with a fairly neutral theme this year with my Christmas decor and I’m loving the soft colors. Yesterday I restyled the hutch on my kitchen counter and it looks so pretty. Hutches and shelves are my favorite things to style so I thought I’d share a few of my tips and tricks with you. When styling hutches I like to group items together. Whether it’s dishes, vintage collectables or even books. In the pic below you can see I used Joanna Gaines’ cookbooks and Liz Marie Galvan’s Cozy white Cottage books.
I added some cute plates and bowls from a matching collection to help hold the books and then added my vintage scale from Antique Farmhouse. I styled the scales using a set of matching bowls filled with pom pom’s and fresh Pomegranates for a pop of color. I also like to use a mix of woods and whites so I added my cute little rocking horse from Krumpet’s Home Decor and also some vintage mashers that I got at Michael’s (shown in the pic below).
But the show stealer for me is the adorable bottle brush trees that I got at target. I love the soft neutral colors and the way they all fit together so well. On the bottom you can see I used another set of matching bowls and a cute pitcher filled with cedar greenery. Quick tip…the plate standing in the back is actually covering a cutout where we have an outlet. I’m a little crazy about plugs and cords showing so I am forever hiding them like it’s my job. LOL. In fact, it’s also hiding the cord and plug that go to our Amazon Echo Dot. Do cords and plugs showing drive you crazy?
On the top I put together a little grouping using some cute little trees, some bowls, a vintage rolling pin and a cute little stand with a cloche. I find that by creating groups of items it makes the styling process go faster and makes the hutch as a whole seem more put together and cohesive. I also like to make sure that each section or shelf contain a similar color or element. For example: Each shelf contains a wood element and white dishes.
I also added a scale to the top shelf to finish off the look. I love how this all came together. It’s festive without being overly done. And the neutral palette fits in perfectly in my kitchen. I hope these tips help you style your own hutches, shelves and even bookcases. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I appreciate you taking the time to visit.
