My Kitchen...New Orleans Style


Partysugar's kitchen organization guide inspired me to post some shots of my own setup. Here's a tour of my New Orleans shotgun house kitchen. Hope you enjoy!
 

My Kitchen...New Orleans StyleHere's my kitchen facing the wash area.
 
Top left of the sink is where I keep my everyday glassware...juice, water and togo cups for coffee.
 
 
Top right is for assorted collectable plastic cups (Mardi Gras throws, favorite local restaurants and festivals), and mugs for coffee/tea. On the bottom shelf are hand blown margarita glasses.
 
A closeup of the voudoo dolls over the sink. Keeps the bad kitchen spirits away. ;) The backsplash is reclaimed beadboard salvaged from old NOLA houses.
Below the sink is storage for trash bags, dishwasher pills, and cleaning supplies.
 
To the left of the range, I keep skillets, saucepans, colander, mixing bowls, plastic storage containers and my Oxo salad spinner.
Pull out drawers with storage staples: parchment, sandwich bags and foil.
Takeout menu drawer: for those nights you just don't feel like cooking.
On the counter to the left of the range are canisters for pancake mix, brown rice and coffee (an essential).
 
The cabinets near the stove are where I keep savory stuff like marinades, sauces and spices.
 
Top left of the stove is storage for olive oil, vinegars, marinades, spice rubs, honey, maple syrup, and Texas bbq sauce.
 
Top right is rice, pastas, dried herbs, spices, hot sauces (you can never have too many brands in Louisiana), and Sriracha (my favorite!)
 
Inside the pull out drawer to the right of the stove is storage for silverware, knives, tongs, citrus juicers, potato chip clips, kitchen towels and whisks. This is my most used space.
 
I'm lucky enough to have this beautiful cypress wood pantry. Up top I keep all serving ware, dishes and wine glasses.
 
I tend to lean towards modern white dishware -- like you would find in a restaurant or cafe. The hot chocolate mugs with orange spoons are from CB2.
 
Colorful chili bowls contrast with the rest of my white dishware...and some ridiculously tall wine glasses from CB2. I love them!
 
Down below, pantry staples like canned beans, tuna, stocks, vegetables and soups. Also some random asian food products (like rice noodles) that I haven't attempted to cook yet.
 
I was able to fit in a small bar height table in the center of the kitchen.
A view of the dining area and fridge.
This cabinet next to my fridge features a hidden compartment for mixers and bar accessories up top (wine tags, koozies and flasks!), wine racks in the middle and glass doors below for bottle storage.
 
Everyone needs a well stocked bar...right?
 
I try to save every beer cap. Thinking of doing something fun with them one day...maybe a mosaic tabletop.
 
A tin pail in the corner offers a place to stash extra Mardi Gras beads. I just can't force myself to get rid of them.

I love it! It's very New Orleans (in a good way). There's so much green, but someone it manages to not be too much green. I think the backsplash and the voodoo dolls are my favorite touches, but everything is great!

Love the seafood them of your kitchen and the reclaimed beadboard as a backsplash is a great idea.

Indeed--I am a Target fiend. My breadbox is also from Target...haha.

I love the kitchen. Thanks for sharing! Someone is obviously a Target shopper. I have the same canister set in red and like them so much better than my last set.
