We promise—spending time in the kitchen is much more fun than it sounds. Summer is ideal for playing with new recipes and creating light and fresh meals. But it’s harder to be inspired to cook without a vibrant, colorful kitchen. Whether you’re entertaining on the patio or experimenting with peak-season summer produce, we’re here to help you do it in style.
Let’s start with a kitchen counter staple: a stylish item like the Dakota camel bone tray.
Trays allow you to be versatile with your space and tastes. Create a mini vignette to show off your seasonal favorites, or use a tray to mise-en-place ingredients for a new recipe using farmer’s market finds. Try arranging seriously snazzy glassware for an easily portable drink station. Which brings us to our next summer favorite for the kitchen…
A gorgeous glass pitcher with matching glasses. Hydration is important, but especially during the hot Colorado summers. A pitcher with accompanying glasses like the Pebbles set will not only look classy on the countertop or in the fridge, but will encourage you to drink more with its elegant combination of form and function.
Speaking of form and function, we can’t think of a better conversation starter for your summer gatherings than a piece from the Carrol Boyes collection. You may recognize her standout sculptures from our holiday gift guide. Art that functions as everyday objects, like this Cantilever two-tiered platter, make delicious summer recipes Instagram-worthy masterpieces that are almost too good to eat.
And last, but certainly not least, consider the Julia Knight collection, the pinnacle of summertime serving. Durable yet delicate, these florals will be your go-to next time you’re in the kitchen. From bowls for small side dishes to platters for satiating a crowd, larger-than-life flowers and leaves in a variety of sizes make serving easy. And we can’t get enough of the rich, luminous colors! Crushed Mother-of-Pearl lends depth and casts a glow wherever you look.
