If you enjoy having items that remind you of cute sea animals in your home, then this porcelain cup will not leave you indifferent. Found on Etsy, this unusual product is inspired by the sea urchin, a small, spiny, globular animal which inhabits the ocean. The cup was made using high fire (2200F) porcelain clay. According to the designer’s description, the exterior of the cup is covered with smooth white glaze and the inside is covered with aqua blue. The Sea Urchin Cup could be a nice addition to any kitchen. Just imagine serving coffee and observing your friends’ reactions for the first time when seeing this cup’s funny design. Because unlike the real sea urchin that feeds on algae, this lovely household addition feeds on tea, hot chocolate and plenty of people over. How do you like it?
Thinking of giving your kitchen a refined and refreshing makeover as you head into summer and fall? Few colors out there bring that perfect balance between sophistication and eye-catching elegance like gray and yellow. A combination that is quickly catching on across the globe largely because of the new-found love for gray in the last few years, it is still a novelty when it comes to the contemporary kitchen. While gorgeous gray and yellow bedrooms and stylish living rooms with this classy color duo are far easier to find, kitchens still seem to be largely stuck in the ‘white along with bright color’ mode.
Another great use of tiles to give the kitchen its dose of yellow and gray, this is an idea for those who are not too keen on too much yellow disturbing the existing color scheme of their home. The dozen or so lemon yellow tiles combined with gray and white pieces still make plenty of visual impact and yet also seem to gently melt away into the backdrop. Notice here how the LED strip lighting literally puts the smart backsplash under the spotlight.
