My totally teal kitchen.
From teal kitchen accessories to a teal coffee marker my kitchen is totally teal...
Whenever anyone compliments my interior design abilities, I tell them my secret:
if you just buy everything in the same color it will all match.
OK, so there’s probably a line that you can cross from going from just enough of a single color to look put together to swimming in an over the top monochrome jungle.
My teal kitchen might just be tiptoeing that line.
I didn’t really mean for my kitchen to become an explosion of all things teal although OK maybe I did. I just can’t help myself. If I go to a store and see a teal spatula or colander or trash can or coffee maker, it has to be mine.
Hello, my name is Valerie, and I’m a teal-holic.
It’s not my fault, though, that teal is actually a pretty common color for kitchenware. You can find it everywhere. And why should I choose boring black or weary white when I can have everything in teal, turquoise, powder blue, and aqua? When I can have an explosion of bright colors?
Or, should I say, bright color…
The teal kitchen obsession started innocently enough with a handful of teal kitchen accessories: a teal spatula, a teal silicone spoon, a teal egg slicer. (I thoroughly admit I don’t need nor have ever used the egg slicer…)
It moved into larger teal accessories: a teal colander, a teal mixing bowl, a teal utensil crock shaped like an owl.
And then it moved into teal appliances: a teal coffee maker, a teal blender, a teal KitchenAid mixer.
And then it moved into bigger pieces: a teal bookshelf, a teal utility cart.
I can’t be stopped.
Lets all just be thankful I live in a rental or else I’d probably have a teal oven and refrigerator too…
