I am at the home of one of my design assistants. (We have been doing a full kitchen makeover! I will add links below to the other videos.)

While some people like nothing above the kitchen cabinets, others like to have decor. What is the balance? How do you make sure you don’t overdo things? Come watch, and I will share some ideas you can implement in your own home.

    Wow thanks for the tip on what to use on dusty greenery. Definitely trying that! Hope you and your family steer clear of this virus and stay healthy 🙏🏻 Always good to see Molly and Emma! ❤️

    Consider something different as a window treatment.

    In my older 1950’s ranch home with maple cabinets, I used my antique crock collection. I enjoyed it at the time but it made for a lot of additional cleaning. In this condo my cabinets go to the ceiling and it is just less work and maintenance overall. These days I am more into minimal. I do like your idea of spare "vignettes>"

    Great job, just beautiful! Doggies are so cute as well. I love them.

    Wonderful video! Yes, the “ivy” days. Hilarious.

  8. Traditions By The Seasons on July 25, 2020 at 7:38 pm

    Gorgeous job, I love how you grouped your items. The greenery adds some nice texture.
    I loved your tip on how to get the dust off our greenery pieces. I am going to try that today!
    Thx for sharing! ~xoxo ❤️

    I unfortunately have a soffit above my cabinets. I debate with myself all the time about putting something up there. I went so far as to buy a couple of tobacco baskets. You have convinced me to hang them and even put some greenery in them. Thank you. You are better then a therapist. HAHA!!! LOL

  12. Talha Gujjar on July 25, 2020 at 7:39 pm

    Any suggestions about black kitchen cabinets

  13. Jean Kendall on July 25, 2020 at 7:41 pm

    Very nice. I’ve found you almost always need boxes or something to raise things up out of the well of the cabinet. My sister has a lot of the same pottery up on hers. We actually take photos of her pottery and then her Christmas decor up there so she remembers how she put it up from year to year.

  14. Grannie Frannie on July 25, 2020 at 7:43 pm

    Such lovely ideas! As always, Molly puts a smile on my face. I was rooting along for her as she tried to retrieve her baby!

  15. Sandy M on July 25, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    Would love to see how you decorate above dark wood cabinets. Thanks!

  16. Su K on July 25, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    Great tips. Will give them a try. Also, may I know where did you get the cake stand with cover (the one where you filled with lemons)?. Thank you

  17. Jeanith Burdine on July 25, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    I loved what you did with the top of the cabinets. I have an all white kitchen. I collect the vintage fiestaware so I put the pitchers and teapots above the cabinets for color. Would you take it all down and then put back just a few pieces with greenry and other items. I treasure your opinion. Loved the video.

  18. Cristina Calderon on July 25, 2020 at 7:49 pm

    Looks great! Love the doxies

  19. Shamrock Girl on July 25, 2020 at 7:49 pm

    If the owner loves real plants, I think it would look nice to display that on the cabinet side(s) by the window.

  20. Cheryl Ann Johnson on July 25, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    I’ve been wondering about this, Jennifer. Thanks for addressing! I too remember the ivy & lots of knick knacks above my cabinets. This is beautiful, lots better! I’ve noticed several homes with nothing above the cabinets and that doesn’t look finished to me. Great ideas! Thanks!

  21. Shamrock Girl on July 25, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    Very nice

  22. GG GB on July 25, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    This is wonderful! I’ve been looking for a video on how to decorate above my cabinets. Your video is so helpful!

  23. anthony fam on July 25, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    Moving soon, this video will definitely help me!! Thanks for the tips!💕

  24. Vivien Mcnaul on July 25, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    Poor molly. Shes a cleaver girl

  25. Rosemary Wascher on July 25, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    I know that one day I will have to change out what I have on top of my cabinet’s so I am glad you did this video, but for right now I still love my collection of vintage glass cake stands. I also have them lit with LED soft string light’s. They just sparkle at night.

  26. MiamiPush2theLimit on July 25, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Thank God!! I hate looking at all that empty white space!

  27. Leslie Worthy on July 25, 2020 at 8:07 pm

    Just beautiful! A completely different way to look at decorating above the cabinets! Thanks Jennifer

  28. Susan Sylvester on July 25, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Can you make a video about decorating a fireplace mantel with a picture above it?

  29. Mary Kroeker on July 25, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    Love your videos and your style.i have a question for you, I have dark espresso coloured cabinets, mid tone floors and my granite warm tone, I want to paint my cupboards to lighten up my kitchen, what colour would you recommend?

  30. Aimee Lenz on July 25, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    Thanks for the cleaning tip!

  31. Pily Fierro on July 25, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    🌹like#84🌹 Thank y💗u 🌹

  32. Shannan Schisler on July 25, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    I was using woodprix to make it and I did it already 🙂

  33. So Blessed on July 25, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    Hi Jennifer. Great tips! I love your fur babies. I’m so happy you included them in the video. Be safe sweet friend. 🤗Marion

  34. Patricia Reitz on July 25, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    And another tip for above the cabinets – line them with wax paper. To clean, just throw the dirty wax paper away and reline with new.

  35. Anna Cooremans on July 25, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    Thank you for the tips because I love decorating above my cabinets!

  36. Aloha Leslie on July 25, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    Aloha Jennifer, so many of the decorating videos I’ve watched now poo poo decorating above cabinets. I’m so glad to see this, as I think it can really add to the overall decor of kitchen and home. Thanks!

  37. Shanta Hsieh on July 25, 2020 at 8:18 pm

    I made it by myself thanks to woodprix plans. I think it’s the best way to learn how to build that.

  38. Susan Holland on July 25, 2020 at 8:20 pm
