Life At The Kitchen Counter Made Easy With Serena and Lily

Updated: Sep 24, 2019

Life At The Counter

Where do you spend most of your time with your family? For us, it is most definitely the kitchen counter. We spend countless hours doing homework, baking, cooking, or on our tech devices (sad to admit). The kitchen counter is Grand Central Station for us. And, it is where most of our memories are made.

Serena and Lily's fresh take on casual dining in our home has helped our family have a casual lifestyle in the kitchen. When we moved into this home, only a week and a half ago, I wanted the kitchen to feel casual. I did not want to worry about my kids spilling milk on upholstered stools or worry about ripping the fabric. I wanted my kids and guests to feel comfortable. In came the Serena and Lily Riviera backless stool in natural. Whether we are doing homework or working on a batch of Rice Krispie treats, these Serena and Lily stools are so versatile. They give my kitchen an elevated look without any of the fuss. They are my no-worry, kid-friendly, wipeable stools. The Riviera backless stool in Natural is the perfect fit for my family. I love the gorgeous hand woven rattan that takes me right back to a Paris cafe, where we were just last year.

Last Sunday, we set out to make a batch of Rice Krispies...the perfect fall treat. What started out as an easy recipe, turned into my kids throwing marshmallows at each other and getting ooey gooey marshmallow creme all over the counters. I love having casual days like this with my kids, and these stools have been the perfect fit for our casual lifestyle. Not only are they beautiful, but they are super functional.

My son started out by measuring the Rice Krispies into a bowl and the Riviera backless stool sits at the perfect counter height for his tiny body. And as you can see, there is ample room on the seat for when he becomes a teen.

Once his sister's joined him, things started to get a bit crazy. That is why we need casual, yet beautifully elevated, furniture to help us create these memories and messes, like these stools from Serena and Lily. Even our cat, Maui, got involved in the fun and he really seems to love the natural feel of these hand made stools under his paws.

I wanted my kitchen to have a Cali home vibe and feel, and I was able to accomplish just this with these gorgeous rattan stools. I could not help myself and also get these gorgeous napkins which are perfect for a casual day with the kids or even a fancy dinner party.
