Moodboard Monday: Coffee Bar Vignette

Dream Coffee Bar Vignette 
Ok this is slightly embarrassing, but while I was cleaning out my closet I found not one, not two, but THREE Crate and Barrel gift cards in a bag with a bunch of wedding stuff.  I mean helloo?? What is wrong with me! So in celebration of my newfound fortune I decided to go out and buy myself a new coffee maker.  I've been using a Braun Tassimo Hot Beverage System, which I really like for the variety of beverages I can make.  However, I can only get the T-discs at Target and I can't get out of Target without spending $600. Sooo if I can get coffee elsewhere I will likely spend less, and thus the new coffee maker is actually a prudent purchase (this kind of reasoning is why I went to law school people).  Plus I get to drink the delicious coffee I brought back from Costa Rica!

Here's a little dream coffee bar vignette in honor of the new coffee maker that's supposed to arrive today.  I love my coffee and I believe my coffee and the accompanying accoutrements deserve a pretty little place to call home.  This coffee bar will live in my dream house for now.  It also gives you a glimpse at the kitchen I am designing in my head.    I'm in love with that marble backsplash from New Ravenna and I'm sort of into gray cabinets. (BTW is it grey or gray? Is gray the Whiskey Tango way of spelling the posher grey? Which will make me look fancier and more sophisticated?)

In other news, I can now cross two projects off of The Big Clean list! I still have so much more to go, but it's better than nothing.  I'm going to try to tackle something small today.  Hopefully, by Friday I'll have a couple more projects crossed off.

  1. Wellll, Congrats on your new coffee maker! lol I love my Bunn. I bought a small commercial one because of the amount of coffee that is slung around this house!;>) What a great looking coffee bar you have. xo Diana

  2. Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!


  3. Love it! I'm a fan of that great tray.

  4. Jennifer,
    It's so fun finding money (or a gift card!) when you're not expecting it! It must feel good to tackle that big list of yours.
    Happy cleaning and organizing!

  5. That is so funny! glad they didn't expire!

  6. Hi Jennifer, just stopping in to a few favorite blogs to say hi, after 3 days of no visits to blogland I was having withdrawals. Thats my bathroom floor up there!! Its called Djinn (the pattern) and its even prettier in person, am in love with it. Love your coffee bar vignette, so chic! Blue and white does the trick every time. So funny about the gift cards, I can soooo relate, you don't even want to know the things I found since moving and its not over yet.....I think it should be telling me something:)
    Have a great day!

  7. I found uncashed checks when I cleaned things out. Now I have to call to see if they are still good or need to be reissued. Ooo, I should have cleaned things out way before now.

  8. Great looking rooms and I LOVE that phone cover. You can always put it on a shelf and just look at it when you get tired of carrying it around! xo Diana
