A couple of weeks in the past I had an epiphany that led me to (unexpectedly however excitedly) purchase a rattan serving cart! I’m SO thrilled with it! The reality is I didn’t plan so as to add ANY furnishings (besides our eating desk and chairs) once we designed our kitchen and eating room.

Generally you don’t actually know the way a room will come collectively till:

1) you begin attempting numerous preparations, or
2) you’re in it (not simply taking a look at it on paper)

That’s how this rattan serving cart ended up on this particular spot in our house! It was meant to be. At the moment I’ll share extra about this serendipitous addition to our kitchen and eating space, why it really works effectively for us, how we’ll use it and what this added piece brings to design-wise our house!

Whereas I like free standing furnishings for storage and including character to a room, as we have been designing our kitchen and eating room we realized it actually wouldn’t make sense to include furnishings (apart from the desk and chairs). We didn’t have many partitions to work with (the entire three fundamental rooms are smallish and open/linked to one another, plus two of the partitions are full of French doorways), so we selected to make use of the out there wall house within the eating room and kitchen for built-ins.

This selections and association actually helped us to maximise ground house, in addition to enhance storage and performance in an “open” format, and I can’t wait to share extra of the small print and the entire renovation within the reveal!

As I discussed, the rattan cart wasn’t within the authentic design plan. But it serendipitously turned out to be the proper piece for our room and appears so charming with the island, too! I like when a room comes collectively organically. I at all times count on an area evolve as we dwell in it, however meaning you don’t at all times get to know upfront precisely how that can occur. You must TRUST it’ll come collectively in time! And sometimes if I’m affected person, slowly however absolutely room will disclose to me what it needs :).

A couple of months in the past I did an inspiration weblog submit on rattan bar carts, by no means imagining on the time that we might ever have room for one ourselves!

I knew I cherished the look and had seen so some ways to make use of rattan carts (plus my mother had a rattan cart in her house for YEARS!), so there was no query I’d love one in my house. But it wasn’t till I used to be lastly standing in my new eating room sooner or later, observing the house we had out there that I might think about how a small cart can be excellent. It will not solely work space-wise with the desk and chairs in place, however seems like a “meant-to-be” design choice!

To make certain we want it there, we introduced in an analogous cart (the one we received this summer season for the porch). It wasn’t the correct measurement (only a wee bit too massive, however each inch counts), however it confirmed that we might love an analogous piece in that spot. Now if we might discover simply the correct measurement, coloration and form we’d be set!

I used to be so excited as a result of I instantly discovered a rattan serving cart that checked the entire bins, so I ordered it on the spot (and bonus I had a $50 credit score and it was on sale!). MEANT TO BE!

It’s actually is a superb addition to our kitchen/eating space in so some ways. Not too massive, not too small. I like the way it brings a delicate shift and connection within the perform from the “kitchen facet” to the “eating space.” It additionally brings collectively and provides to all of our heat toned textures, from the reducing boards and the wooden flooring to the steel fixtures over the island. I additionally love the best way it contrasts with the pure stones and mushy creamy cupboards. It feels good, so heat, homey and welcoming, like I deliberate for it to be there all alongside.

I feel many instances, that’s the easiest way to design a room. It will probably prove even BETTER while you don’t plan each element to start with! It’s enjoyable while you discover that sudden piece, or there is a component of shock with the way it got here collectively, or while you merely have the enjoyment of watching it evolve and develop into your personal over time.

That is what I hoped for in our kitchen. I wished the general design to really feel welcoming, basic and timeless, as if it at all times been right here in our household. But so as to really feel prefer it’s really at all times been with us and will probably be for years to return, it might naturally evolve as a result of we might get pleasure from it and dwell in it.

Whereas it’s a brand new kitchen and a brand new serving cart, daily it’s feeling an increasing number of like a household house we’ve at all times cherished and at all times will.

So how will we use the rattan cart and what’s on it now?
