Stylish coffee essentials

You regular readers know I love to find style in anything (and new readers – hi there! Let’s make things lovely). I especially love stylish kitchen items, as our family spends a whole lot of time in or around the kitchen. My desire is that the entire space reflect our style and be a natural extension (and expression) of us. I think it brings my children comfort and joy when certain things around the house remind them of family, or of their mom and dad. I want to be surrounded by things I love, not just to have “stuff”, but so that the items I do choose will bring me joy, make my family happy and have a purpose.

Style with a purpose

Choosing companies with a similar mindset is important, and I’m completely smitten with the company we’re featuring today called Mighty Nest (and so excited that one of you will be taking home a lovely set of modern, stylish items from their shop). I want you to have fun with style, too, and here’s an example of how you can.

Chances are good that you are a coffee lover. But do you just rush and make the coffee and slam it down and move on quickly? Is it a means to an end, or do you take a minute with it? Of course, some days the rush is a necessary evil. What if now and then you decided to make it a little event?

Everyday celebrations

Sometimes what’s needed is slowing down for that cuppa. Maybe even taking your coffee, hot water and mugs and making a coffee picnic of sorts. You can create a moment. Celebrating the everyday like this is something we’ve started doing at home, because why not? Why not make a special moment out of just having a cup of coffee?

We took this gorgeous Chemex glass coffeemaker outside and made our coffee there. I grabbed some of my beloved vintage coffee mugs and vintage linens to make it feel special, and we just went for it. We didn’t need to plug anything in, and we took some time together.

If you love beautiful things, oh my friends, I can’t even tell you how gorgeous the Chemex is in person. It’s a work of art.

The wood and leather make for a stunning look on your table, and would be beautiful for entertaining. Not to mention that coffee prepared this way is absolutely divine. You can make strong, bold flavors without using too much coffee and without bitterness. It can brew tea as well. A.mazing!

Create a healthy home

Mighty Nest is dedicated to healthy, non-toxic products and they just happen to have such a beautiful aesthetic that you’ll see the products are not only healthy but stylish as well. The also completely rock at educating people on why this whole thing is important, so be sure to click over to their learning resources if you’re interested.

They wanted to share their shop with you, invite you to look around, and give away a beautiful modern and stylish coffee set today. I worked with them to choose items I thought you all would enjoy (because they’re things I would love too!).

What’s included in the prize:
Chemex Glass Coffeemaker
Chemex Filter Squares
Porcelain Travel Mug
Stainless Steel Coffee Measure
Round Stoneware Storage Jars

The materials used to make each of these products (glass, ceramic, stainless steel, wood, etc.) are of the finest quality and completely non-toxic. Those stoneware jars are especially swoon-worthy, too, don’t you think?

Mighty Nest has beautiful items in all categories of the home, and is a great source to replace toxic materials (BPA plastic, for a start!) with natural, healthy items instead.

Win it!

  10. Paul Dudley says:

    I kitchen stuff were cool but so were the baby stuff.

  11. I love the glass storage containers.

  12. I eyed this glass coffee maker a few weeks ago. It is so beautiful!

  13. What a gorgeous coffee pot! I love my French press, and would like to know how they compare (besides the Chemex being so much prettier :)?

  14. I love my coffee & these tools are SO cool!

  15. I pretty much love everything but particularly love all the lunchbox items. I really need those insulated stainless steel food containers for my kids.

  16. Megan Mattinson says:

    I have really been wanting to switch to glass dishes for my kids, so I loved the kids’ dishes set.

  17. That coffee set is divine.

    But when I clicked over to Mighty Nest’s site, I was immediately drawn to the reusable lunch supplies. It’s something on my list! And I love what they offer.

  19. I’d love to win!

  20. The travel mug is amazing!

  21. Ooooh, I’d love one of the organic honeycomb blankets!

  22. I love a good coffee ritual, and I’d love that the Chemex would involve more planning and meditation than my current method, which is “Strap kid in carseat, pour coffee into travel mug, turn off coffee maker, grab baby and leave house in a rush!”

  23. I love pretty much everything under their “baby toys” section!

  24. I’m not a fan of coffee {love the smell, not the taste}, but this set is so gorgeous, it just might change my mind! If nothing else, I can impress my guests with it’s beauty.

    • The first thing that caught my eye when I headed over to the Mighty Nest website was the Glass Kids Dish Set. I want to start having my son use “real” dishes and he’d be thrilled to have his own set. At $11.95 for a cup, bowl, AND plate, I can easily do this!

  25. Wow, they have such a vast array of items, it’s hard to choose a favorite. I do love the canisters that are part of the coffee set. I also like the glass water bottles – for some reason I don’t like drinking out of the stainless steel ones.

  27. The coffee set looks awesome, of course. I also like the Lys Glass Food Storage Bowls. I definitely need some more of those.

  38. I love Chemex coffee! I love slow mornings and the ritual of making a truely magnificent cup of coffee.

I look forward to the days when we can slow down and enjoy our morning coffee ritual again.

  40. christina says:

  76. I’ve always wanted to try the Chemex… This is lovely (and I desperately want one of the jersey duvet covers too–cozy!).

  79. Kient Girl says:

    I love the Chemex Glass Coffeemaker and the Weck canning jars!

  80. Coffee for me is like tea for the British. It’s such a comforting ritual, having a beautiful set like this would make it that much better! I love the porcelain take away mug with the silicone lid – silicone is so much better than the usual travel coffee mug lids because it doesn’t hold icky stuff and it’s so nice to peel off and have a regular coffee mug when I get to my destination. The sunflowers are really cute and whimsical.

  81. To be completely honest, I’ve been eyeing that coffee maker there for quite some time. It’s just gorgeous!

  82. This is a wonderful giveaway, such beautiful pieces!

  83. While I’d probably actually use most of what’s in the kitchenware…I am slowly ridding my kitchen of plastic…the toys are what I love. So many beautiful things there! I want to play that color connect game and mess around with the wooden shapemaker and the modeling beeswax.

  84. The Chemex coffe maker FOR SURE. A beautiful company to feature.

  85. *coffee :-O

  86. I don’t know where to begin. I am in love with this website. Since we are expecting our first child I would have to say the sippy cups are one of my favs. So cute!
