Renting an apartment doesn't mean you have to forfeit style — especially in the kitchen. The kitchen is one of the only rooms in an apartment that you're pretty much stuck with what you're given and that doesn't always have to be a bad thing.
Kay's curated kitchen is a perfect example of that. She was given a pretty basic kitchen and through the use of accessories and items she's collected throughout the years was able to create an inspiring space.
Vintage side tables, old tapestries and brightly colored accessories on the counters were just a few ways Kay was able to inject some serious style into the kitchen. Style and personality doesn't have to be over the top to grab someones attention — just express yourself!
