One of the best things about tea towels is the fact that you can switch them up often and show off your personality with their fun designs. Now that Spring is here, it's the perfect time to shop some of the best and brightest ones out there and give your space that warm-weather feel. Use them as decor, for drying dishes, to bundle up muffins — whatever the way, bring the season's florals and colors to your counters with these pretty (and practical) picks.
Just because you have a small kitchen doesn't mean you can't make use of the space . . . vertically, that is. Your wall offers more real estate than you give it credit for. Hammer in a few towel racks and shelves, and prepare to store more than you could have possibly imagined.
For the friend who loves all things vintage, gift her kitchen items with a bold retro look that will make her feel like she stepped into a cooking space from yesteryear. Nothing screams retro like mint green, vinyl disks, and polka dots — and they make up the perfect touches of any classic kitchen gift.
Hearts, flowers, and Paris all have a place in your girlie friend's heart, and now they have a place in her kitchen, too. Gift her these dainty presents this holiday season — not only will they make her life easier, but they'll add an extra dose of femininity to her cooking space. It's a match made in culinary girlie heaven.
Tea towels are an adorable (and useful) addition to any kitchen because they are an inexpensive way to decorate towel racks, dry delicate dishes, and bundle up hot scones or muffins. Take a look at these 10 printed tea towels featuring tasty foods and beverages we love.

Did you make a resolution to cook more this year? If so, you deserve a pretty new apron. We're dying over the amazing apron options from Anthropologie and we can't help but want each and every one of them. (This can be justified because we cook all the time, right?) We've also included what recipes we think pair best with each apron. Check out our picks and the perfect occasion to pair them with.
Everyone loves a great apron, but have you ever thought about your oven mitt? An oven mitt is a fantastic way to spruce up your kitchen with a little bit of whimsy and a lot of flair.
I came across these three beautiful oven mitts at the Curiosity Shoppe. They're $25 a piece, and were created by the folks at Deadly Squire (although how anything so cute could come from something called "deadly" is beyond me). They've also got matching pot holders for $20.
If branches and birds aren't your style, check out these hot dot oven mitts and pot holders at Chiasso. They range from $12-$18.

Here are a few aprons that make cooking chic. (Tune in later today for Hot Kitchen Style, Part II.)
