If your 2020 resolution is to fall back in love with your home’s decor or if you’re simply looking to dress up your space with a few new pieces, this is the list for you! All nine of these SB Shop items are tried-and-true goodies meant to add color, functionality and a touch of Southern charm to the most important room in the house: your kitchen.
We’re sure you’ve seen a few of these items in previous articles, like the Dwell & Good kitchen mats or Erika Roberts’ city skyline prints. With the start of a new year, SB Shop has added new styles for these brands as well as brand new Southern makers to round out your shopping experience without leaving out some of 2019’s best-selling brands. Here are nine beautiful (and affordable) items ideal for breathing new life into your kitchen!
8 Items That Will Breathe New Life Into Your Kitchen
100% Recycled Glassware & Cookbook Holder
NEWLY, a Southern brand dedicated to creating quality goods with 100% recycled material, is one of SB Shop’s most recent additions. Their beautiful selection of handmade glassware not only impresses guests but also looks beautiful perched atop a kitchen counter or bar. Each set is affordable ($52 to $58) compared to glassware of similar quality and aesthetic. It will be your go-to vessel for years to come.
This handmade, 100% recycled whiskey tumbler ($54 for a set of 6) combines a comfortable grip and sleek design that will wow even the most discerning spirits drinker with an approachable durability that makes them a great fit for everyday use as well. Shop this as well as the best-selling lucite cookbook holder, dinner glasses, pint glasses, collins glasses, wine glasses, postre glasses and blankets here.
Platters & Decorative Dishes
Handmade Studio TN is a Tennessee-based maker that handcrafts ceramics that add thoughtfulness and beauty to your everyday life. Minimalism and a timeless aesthetic drive the creativity behind each piece, resulting in heirloom-quality items worthy of adding to your dinnerware selection as well as displaying in your kitchen.
This 9-by-13-inch White Lace Cheeseboard ($168), handcrafted with intricate elegance, makes a beautiful centerpiece and features a natural glaze, lace detail and an organic form. The Moon Dish ($32) is the perfect addition to your sink. Place your rings in this handcrafted 4.5-inch dish before washing dishes or cleaning the kitchen. It features a night sky with a hand-brushed golden crescent moon for a touch of whimsy. Shop these as well as a gold rim ring bowl, Chamberlin platter and ornaments here.
Handmade Wooden Goods
Billet + Blade is a one-woman workshop dedicated to making simple things with simple tools from simple materials. All of the wood is sourced locally in Middle Tennessee from fallen or trimmed trees. The pieces are then hand-rubbed with a food-safe homemade blend of raw linseed oil and local beeswax. They’re made to endure daily use for years to come.
These Handmade Wooden Salad Servers ($56) measure 14-by-3.5-by-1-inch and are available in charred maple, cherry and walnut, although the exact shade of each piece varies, meaning your servers are totally one-of-a-kind. The Handmade Wooden Cocktail Set ($96) includes a garnish board, muddler and stir spoon, each handmade from a variety of Tennessee hardwoods. Again, as each is handmade, the color will differ slightly. Shop these as well as pan spoons, long-handled stir spoons and pot spoons here.
Dwell & Good’s Vinyl Kitchen Mats became a quick best-seller on SB Shop for their affordable price ($49) and variety of colors and patterns. These durable 30-by-18-inch mats, made from 1/16-inch PVC-coated polyester woven fabric, are phthalate-free and great for indoor or controlled outdoor use, such as a screened-in porch. They feature a coated top surface that helps it lay flat while the non-slip backing helps prevent falls. As these mats are an alternative to traditional rugs, they are beyond easy to wipe clean.
This Herringbone Tweed Vinyl Kitchen Mat ($49) is available in blue, grey or brown. SB Shop carries a selection of other vinyl kitchen mat patterns (Muted Persian and Distressed Arrows) as well as indoor/outdoor rugs, pet mats, runner rugs, placemats and wallpaper. See them all here.
City Prints & Tea Towels
Erika Roberts’ fine art prints and tea towels are another SB Shop favorite. And they’re ideal for bringing some brightness and fun into your kitchen. Each original watercolor painting is professionally printed on 11-by-14-inch heavy watercolor-type paper and arrives hand-embellished with gold ink and hand-signed by the artist herself. Each 27-by-27-inch flour sack tea towel, featuring rich color tones, is 100% cotton, absorbent, easy to wash and has a loop for convenient hanging.
This print ($34) and tea towel ($24) feature the Birmingham skyline, but a variety of other Southern cities are available for purchase as well, including Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Louisville and most recently added, Franklin, TN. See them all here.
