My Dream Kitchen is Star Wars Themed

I love cooking. I love baking. I love throwing dinner parties (though the general consensus is that they will, in fact, be the death of me one day). I am a big 'ole fan of Dance Cooking in particular.

Yep, that's me and my favorite spatula.
Basically, the kitchen is where I largely find what little zen I can. It should come as no surprise then, that my kitchen is the room I most often dream about giving a badass makeover. I have a lovely vision of a posh, clean-lined oasis with a country sink, subway tile accent wall, simple but spacious cabinetry, and hammered copper fixtures. Truly, it's going to be glorious when I win the lottery and can finally afford to remodel the room where the cookies come from.* 

Just because my vision would put the studio kitchens on The Food Network to shame, however, doesn't mean it wouldn't also be a geek haven. Oh, no! One of the best things about being an adult (aside from eating dessert for breakfast or breakfast for dinner), is being able to express your geek love however much or little you may want. So, in addition to being classy as hell, my dream kitchen is also Star Wars themed, because I can. Here are my top 10 items to keep your geek kitchen chic whether you're on the Death Star or a Rebel Base:

1. X-Wing Knife Block

It's so shiny!!

2. Han Solo in Carbonite Silicone Mold

I own this and can confirm that these are delightful floating in a cocktail!

3. Darth Vader Cutting Board

I am totally in love with this design!

4. Yoda Cutting Board

Prefer to save your knives and use a wood board? Adorable, is this not?!

5. Cut Steel Boba Fett Trivet

I need this in my life. Seriously, I cannot over-emphasize how much I love this trivet.

6. Imperial Mixing Spoons

Perfect for whipping up some Dark Side Cookies

7. Rebel Alliance Cookie Cutter

Who says the Dark Side are the only ones with cookies? Bonus: This cutter is biodegradable!

8. Star Wars Pin-Up Apron

Keep it classy with this adorably understated apron

9. Vintage Style Embroidered Dishtowels

A little thin for dishtowels, I'd use these hand-embroidered linens as fancy napkins

10. Jedi Hand Towel

This, however, would make a great kitchen towel

*If you want to contribute to my dream kitchen, I will totally bake you insanely delicious Groot shaped cookies as a thank you. Just throwin' that out there...


  1. I need all of this! I don't even know what a trivet is, but I need it.

  2. That is an awesome way to stir up the traditional kitchen look. I'm sure that an R2-D2 trash bin will fit in perfectly in your kitchen. Hahaha! Anyway, I hope you materialize that dream kitchen soon, Eris. All the best to you! :)
