Whether you’re living with the kitchen of your dreams or your cooking space has some room for improvement, spring is the perfect time to give the heart of your home a little refresh.

With inspiration from some extremely chic kitchens recently spotted on our social feeds, we’ve rounded up a few adorable accessories to give your kitchen a new sense of style.

Barnyard Designs Farmhouse Herb Garden Planter with Tray

Barnyard Designs Farmhouse Herb Garden Planter


We’re big fans of an indoor herb garden, and this little set of pots is the perfect starting point. While the tray is meant to catch the water run-off of the pots, it also makes it easier to keep your tiny herb garden in one place or move as needed, so don’t let it put you off if you’re short on counter space.

Rowan Large Acacia Turntable

The Container Store

While we can appreciate the functionality of a Lazy Susan, we rarely see any designs that fit the current trends. Most are as dated and retro as the name itself. But this sleek, stylish, and minimalist turntable is something we can get behind. It’s the perfect addition to the center of your table, whether you’re hosting a larger get-together or your usual family meal. 

Dexas Black Marble & Wood Serving Board

Dexas Black Marble & Wood Serving Board

The Container Store

We’ve seen plenty of white marble and wood serving boards, but this option in black feels like an updated alternative. We can definitely envision a cheese board display incorporating brightly colored fruit and edible flowers that will pop against the darker tones.

Haden Heritage Cordless Electric Kettle

World Market

If you haven’t yet made the switch to an electric kettle, now is the time. You just have to switch it on and wait until the magic happens. This cordless option is beautiful in black, but we also love the rose option for a more retro aesthetic or the white if you're rocking a farmhouse style

World Market Embroidered Wildflower and Mushroom Kitchen Towel

In case you missed the memo, mushrooms are trending this season. But while mushroom-shaped accessories aren't for every home, we’re pretty sure this adorable kitchen towel absolutely is with its dainty embroidery.

Voluspa Japonica Jar Candle

Voluspa Japonica Jar Candle


If you’re looking for a classic candle to offset the various smells that can accumulate in your kitchen, then we adore Voluspa. French Cade & Lavender is a personal favorite, and the green-tinted glass is forever on-trend. After you've finished the candle, go ahead and reuse the jar for extra storage or even a mini vase for flowers.

Anthropologie Amanita Mushroom Candle

Amanita Mushroom Candle


If you’re all in on the mushroom trend, then this candle could not be cuter or more spring-appropriate. Along with being downright adorable, both scent options work as the perfect fragrance to whisk you into the new season.

Fable The Vase

The Vase by Fable


This Fable vase is stylish enough to be cute without stealing focus from your flower arrangement. It comes in a variety of colors that will work in any kitchen. It’s also opaque, which hides the inevitable cloudy water that your flowers have in their final days.

Our Place Midi Bowls

Our Place Midi Bowls

Our Place

We’re big fans of anything from Our Place, but these bowls might rank at the top of the list. If you have open shelving or keep your plates on display in some way, these bowls naturally stack creating an effortless look.

W&P The Mason Shaker

The Mason Shaker

W & P

Mason jars are one of the most surefire signs that warmer weather is on its way. This cocktail shaker spin on the more traditional mason jar drinking glass and will leave any bar cart looking cuter than ever when it's not in use.

Anthropologie Rattan-Wrapped Pitcher

Rattan-Wrapped Pitcher


Rattan is one of many organic materials we’re seeing everywhere this season, but this pitcher still feels one-of-a-kind. Plus, it's pretty enough to always have on display. It’s also super versatile—use it indoors or out, for serving drinks, or for holding a fresh bouquet of flowers. 

Ruggable Suzani Coral Rug in 2’ x 3’

Suzani Coral Rug in 2’ x 3’


A kitchen rug has its ups and downs, but you can’t go wrong with a small, cushioned rug set in front of your sink—and especially the ones from Ruggable, which are washable. The floral print on this Suzani version is springy and sweet, but neutral enough not to distract the eye.

Terrain Colorful Glass Bud Vase

Colorful Glass Bud Vase


A beautiful bunch of flowers works well in any kitchen, but they can quickly become unwieldy as a table centerpiece—especially if you're hosting a small group. These glass bud vases let you add flowers and greenery without creating an obstruction, and they come in the perfect shades to mix and match.
