I have to admit that when I walked onto the set of the Martha Stewart Show a couple of weeks ago, I was a bit star struck—not just by Martha, but also by her set kitchen, which is modeled after the one in her Bedford, New York, house. Here are a few ideas for accessorizing the Martha Stewart kitchen look (for appliance, cookware, and countertop resources listings, go to Martha Stewart).
Above: We like the open shelving, the vintage pitchers used for utensil storage, the vintage rolling pins as decor, and the understated simple cabinet knobs. The cabinet paint is Mourning Dove Gray (MS 151) and the wall paint is Evening Moth (MS 173), both from the Martha Stewart Colors line, which will be sold through Home Depot beginning in March of 2010.
Above: Simple Baldwin Spherical Cabinet Knob in satin nickel finish; $6.80 for 1-inch diameter knob at Home Decor Hardware.
Above: This Dipped Wood Rolling Pin with red handles is styled like the vintage ones in the Martha Stewart set kitchen; $15 at West Elm.
Above: White marble mortar and pestle by Magnus Lundstrum; $60 at the Cooper-Hewitt Shop.
Above: Martha's sink is a custom double-width marble sink outfitted with a pair of Czech & Speake Edwardian Cross Top Two-Hole Sink Bridge Mixers. The curved spout is pivotable for ease of use; available in chrome, platinum, platinum matte, or Durabrass finishes; £550 for the 8-inch-spread chrome faucet at Czech & Speake.
Above: Porcelain Soap Dish with slotted wooden insert; $10.34 from Amazon.
Above: We're converts to the Martha Stewart Clean Home line, which features products that are 99 percent plant- and mineral-based, with no added fragrances or coloring. We especially like the Martha Stewart Clean Dish/Hand Soap, with a peel-off label, and the unscented Martha Stewart Clean Dishwasher Detergent. Available through Amazon and Home Depot.
