Family gatherings are always a sweet source of inspiration for decorating a house. Especially places where we’ve had dessert together and lounged about after making a mess in the kitchen. All the tools and gadgets are out, cupcake trays, ice-cream maker, pies, all kinds of cakes and of course brunch with pancakes and waffle makers!

It inspired me to write about a house designed with the dessert-loving family in mind. Making a house that looks like it was designed by Martha Stewart involves paying attention to details and incorporating elements that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Having dessert appliances and gadgets in the kitchen is a great way to create a functional and fun space that reflects the interests and tastes of the homeowners. Families enjoy displaying their cool dessert-making gadgets by creating shelving and open cabinetry.

Here are some tips on how you can achieve this design in your home with your special sweet tooths in mind:

Start with a cohesive color palette

Martha Stewart is known for her signature use of color, so consider choosing a color palette that is both warm and inviting. Some popular color schemes include earthy tones, such as muted greens, blues, and browns.

Incorporate natural materials

Martha Stewart is also known for her love of natural materials, such as wood and stone. Consider incorporating these materials into the design, either through the use of hardwood flooring or stone countertops.

Pay attention to details

To achieve a Martha Stewart-inspired look, pay close attention to the details. This may include things like using high-quality hardware and fixtures, such as brushed nickel or brass, and selecting decorative elements that are both functional and visually appealing.

Create a comfortable and inviting living space

Martha Stewart is all about creating comfortable and inviting living spaces that are both functional and stylish. Consider incorporating cozy seating areas, such as a window seat or a comfortable couch.

Make use of natural light

Martha Stewart is known for her use of natural light, so consider incorporating large windows or skylights into the design of the house to let in as much natural light as possible.

Choose dessert-inspired colors

To create a cohesive look and feel, consider using dessert-inspired colors like earthy browns, sandy yellows, and warm oranges for the cabinetry, countertops, and walls.

Incorporate specialized cabinetry

To keep the kitchen organized and functional, consider incorporating specialized cabinetry for the dessert appliances and gadgets. This can include built-in cabinets for ice cream makers, blenders, and other appliances.

Install quartz countertops

Quartz countertops are a popular choice for kitchens, as they are durable, easy to clean, and come in a wide range of colors and styles. Consider choosing a quartz countertop with a dessert-inspired pattern or color to tie the design together.

Display dessert-themed decor

To enhance the dessert theme, display decor items like cute plants, framed dessert prints, and woven baskets with baked goodies.

Provide lounging areas

If the homeowners want to lounge in another room, consider providing seating areas near the kitchen where they can relax and enjoy their desserts. This can include comfortable chairs or stools and small tables to hold their snacks and desserts.

Incorporating a walk-in pantry

in the kitchen is a great way to create a functional and stylish storage space for cooking spices and ingredients. Look for a space in the kitchen that's easily accessible and convenient. This could be next to the kitchen or near the dining area.

Install high-quality shelving

Invest in high-quality shelving that can hold the weight of the spices and ingredients. Consider using adjustable shelves to make it easier to customize the space.

Use storage containers

Store spices and ingredients in clear, airtight containers to keep them fresh and easy to find. Label the containers with the name of the spice or ingredient to make it easier to find what you need.

Incorporate decorative elements

Add decorative elements to the pantry, such as baskets, jars, or decorative storage boxes. This can add a stylish touch to the space and make it more visually interesting.

Add lighting

Install lighting in the pantry to make it easier to find what you need, especially if the space is not well-lit. Consider using LED strip lights or recessed lighting to create a warm and inviting ambiance.

By incorporating these elements into the design and the walk-in pantry, you can create functional and stylish spaces that are perfect for a Martha Stewart-inspired design for dessert loving families! Using timeless colors and decorations can certainly contribute to making the house attractive to others, as well as ensuring that the house maintains its appeal over time.
