I can’t believe it but the holiday decor is down, kids are back in school, and here we are trying to get back into the normal swing of things again! I love the holiday season and it’s always a time of year that has so many good memories for me. But even though the mistletoe may be packed away in storage, I wanted to carry forward that spirit of togetherness. Mainly so that we continue to create memorable moments in our everyday. Especially with our Mackenzie Childs kitchen items!
I had the incredible opportunity to spend a few hours with the MacKenzie Childs team as they visited Dallas last Fall, and what I will remember the most is the vivacious energy and contagious passion that I felt when meeting Rebecca Proctor, the MacKenzie Childs’ chief brand officer. It’s readily apparent that her creative spirit is infused in all of the beautiful hand-crafted MacKenzie Childs pieces, and it just brings me so much joy every time I use them! Read on to see how I’ve updated my kitchen with MacKenzie Childs and no doubt you’ll understand how their pieces have been inspiring me to elevate the everyday in my life!

My Favorite Mackenzie Childs Kitchen Items
Coffee is a must for me in the mornings; and I had been wanting to change up this little open-shelving / coffee area in my kitchen for the longest time! MacKenzie Childs is known for their iconic tea kettle so I knew that I wanted one in a space that I would see first thing every day. I just love how the kettle combines a bit of whimsy with elegance in it’s fanciful gooseneck arch and jeweled glass knob on top. I have the 2-quart size here but am wishing that I would’ve done the 3-quart size as it’s just such a beautiful statement piece! Finally, on the top shelf I placed two mini canisters just for decoration and love how it ties together the beautiful blue and white Royal Check print!
One of the things I love the most about MacKenzie Childs is how easily the pieces incorporate into what I already have in my home. Add in a few pieces here and there and you can have a statement piece that will carry you over as your grow your collection!
For our dinette area, I continued with pieces from the blue and white Royal Check Collection as I just love that it’s a print that can be used year-round and has a colorful playful pop that was a great complement to our mid-century modern decor. I also added in the beautifully decorative Sweetbriar Collection to balance out the print. One of the things I quickly realized after seeing many of the MacKenzie Childs pieces in person is that they all mix and match so easily! No matter if it’s a checkered print, stripes, or florals, the colors are made to coordinate.
At 4 and 7 years old, my kids are finally old enough that they don’t need special shatter-resistant flatware. And while all MacKenzie Childs pieces are skillfully hand-painted by talented artisans, it’s still functional for everyday family life as they are each incredibly sturdy and dishwasher safe! From the instant you pick up any of the MacKenzie Childs pieces, you can see both the tremendous amount of craftsmanship; as well as thoughtfulness that went into each one.
MacKenzie Childs is a brand that I am truly so happy to introduce into my home. The joy, thoughtfulness, and charm that is at the center of MacKenzie Childs is something that is felt in every one of its pieces; and I just love that it’s the backdrop to the memories I’m creating with my family everyday.
