Today I would love to share a few images from my new kitchen.Kitchen leather handles DIY via Stilzitat blog We have a pretty small kitchen and I don’t like it, when small rooms look too crowded. This is the reason why I decided to go for a clean, fresh look and kept most of the kitchen white. Wood, white & silver metals and cognac colored accessoires are the only color drops so far. And of course fresh herbs.Open kitchen self via Stilzitat blog with vintage tinsI like open shelving and use my shelves to display these beautiful vintage pharmacy tins and cans. I love that they are different size, so I can use them as storage for pasta, herbs, tee or coffee or various kitchen utensils.Leather handles DIY via Stilzitat blogIf you are interested in the kitchen leather handles, these are the materials I used:
-1 leather belt
-a ruler
-a cutter
-screw nuts
-utensils to fix the screws
I cut the belt into identical pieces and drilled holes into the kitchen doors and also into the handles. I adjusted the leather to the kitchen fronts, making sure its straight using a water-level {this picture above pictures me working on the DIY handles}.
I really, really love the look of old, used cognac leather and this is also the reason, why I don’t worry about stains and the weathered look the handles will get after a while. I think, it will match the vintage accessoires.
What accessoires do you use to spice up your kitchen?


  1. Your kitchen makes me go all WOOHOO! I love every detail and your styling is just impeccable! So fabulous. The leather handles are the perfect accomplishment for your kitchen, Anastasia. Well done!

    Thank you!!
