Chantal's Bright & Blue Rental Kitchen




Santa Monica, California



Square Feet:


How many people live in home:

Me and my two pups, Bijou and Brussy.

What makes your small kitchen so cool?

It is bright, everything on the walls has meaning, and every space has a purpose. It's a rental, but it still feels like home. We make tasty food in it!

One challenge you overcame in your small kitchen, or a good resource you've found.

I needed more storage. The pot rack, knife rack, and butcher block added great storage. I got the idea for the mason jars from the Kitchn's Kitchen Cure! We built a small bar that sits on the butcher block to house the booze. Also, the kitchen just felt so cold and impersonal being a rental. Painting it bright blue made it feel homey and warm.

Favorite Meal to Cook in Kitchen

Anything! But especially homemade pizza with sausage, tomatoes, basil, and goat cheese!
