Kitchen Sink Styling

Not long ago on Instagram, I posted a broad view picture of our kitchen, soon after a follower kindly requested I post a “close-up” of the tray sitting next to our sink. Of course! I did so and thought I’d follow up with a blog post too. It’s nothing fancy, it’s just handy and vintage-style.

What’s Handy

There’s a few items key items I love to have readily available at the kitchen sink. Lets face it, if you spend a lot of time there like I do, why not look at something that makes you happy, while keeping your sink favorites handy as well as organized. Dishwashing soap, hand soap, paper towels and my pot scrubber seem to “make the cut” lately. I bought both types of soap dispensers at Target with scented basil & verbena scent, if you like the smell of basil, I suggest you try it!

The stainless scrubber and fern moss sit in antique English ironstone meat and marmalade pots, all resting on an old weathered chopping block (flea market find). Can you believe meat used to be sold in ironstone pots? I can’t even imagine how charming a shelf of full of little meat pots looked in the market!

At any given time, you will find a kitchen towel draped over the front of our sink, in soft, worn french hand-spun linen. I have used, loved and collected these beauties for decades. They are a DHLifestyle favorite, if you would like to have one of your own, you can find them here.  Just below the sink and that lovely towel, is a drawer (yes , I said drawer) with all kinds of not-so-attractive necessities, nothing I want to look at but need such as Bar Keepers Friend (a staple), a sink sponge, dish drainer and more. When I designed the kitchen and it’s cabinets, knowing I wanted drawers under the farm sink instead of cupboard doors.  Smart decision, much easier to keep organized and clean, they’re great.

I love the interesting mix of old with new, it’s never boring. What’s next to your kitchen sink?
