With spring cleaning season fully underway, a winter of holiday cooking and baking marathons may have you re-evaluating your kitchen gadgets. Maybe you’ve just spring cleaned every single cabinet and suddenly you’ve realized you need a few more culinary basics. Or maybe you just want to give your kitchen a brand new makeover without, you know, painting cabinets and tiling a backsplash. If your kitchen is begging for some new swag, this week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to give your kitchen a stylish refresh with quirky accessories, on-trend textures and perfectly curated coffee accessories for the ultimate hot drink station, because #priorities. Scroll on to see how we’d style a kitchen for a boho-chic space, minimalist abode and preppy home.
Give your kitchen that enviable, messy-chic boho vibe with accents like interesting textures, vintage appliances and an earthy color palette. Contrast rustic wood accessories with bright copper seating and storage canisters. Mint green, botanical prints and a tribal pattern rug can all help to give your kitchen a nonchalant, bohemian vibe.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMALIST KITCHEN
The minimalist look is always a win in small kitchens, but looks amazing in larger spaces as well. Stick to a fairly neutral color palette and add some personality to the mix with raw wood cutting boards, bold typography canisters and anything color-dipped. Metallic accessories like a coffee maker and toaster will add that necessary glam to your kitchen and mix well with the natural textures and light hues. Throw in some graphic prints like a striped rug to add a little more dimension to the space.

HOW TO DECORATE A PREPPY KITCHEN
If you want to bring pretty, preppy personality to your kitchen, all you need are some bright colors (hello hot pink) and plenty of bold patterns (read: polka dots +stripes). Mix it up by adding colorful accents with a pink striped rug, bright orange seating and then glam it up with mixed metal canisters and a set of gold knives. The preppy look isn’t complete without a few quirky pieces, so bring on the bling with a gem rolling pin and a silly banana print dish towel.
