Heart of the Home- Kitchen Inspired Decor
More than just a space for cooking and eating, the kitchen is where all of the action in the home takes place. From entertaining guests to gathering together on Saturday mornings, it's the true heart of the home.
Some of the most appealing Kitchen-Inspired decors are actually a blend of styles. This can easily be accomplished with styles that share common elements, such as French and Italian. These European neighbors have influenced two of the most popular decorating styles in America: French Country, Modern Farmhouse, and Italian warmth.
Get inspired to transform this area with these practical and easy-to-implement decorative touches.
Stick to One Colorway
A space feels more cohesive when you stick to one colorway for your counter and tabletop displays. That helps visually to keep it from being "bogged down". Matching canisters, cookie jars, oil & vingar bottles to salt and pepper shakers unites a space easily. Another benefit of neutral palates, is the pops of color and seasonal items you can effortlessly trade out by season or style!
Creating "Lived-In" Elegance
French Country, Modern Farmhouse, and kitchens as comforting as your Grandmother's, consist of earthenware pitchers and urns and terra-cotta pottery. Displaying ceramic bunnies, chickens and roosters nestled among baskets of fresh produce or a vase filled with golden sunflowers creates a winsome atmosphere.
Using decorative accents such as topiaries, lemon trees or baskets filled with fruits and berries, and vases filled with fresh, faux-flowers creates a lasting impression. Look for vintage clocks, pottery, ceramics, or wall art that fit the unique environment. These treasures make perfect accessories for adding an old world element to a decorating style and help add distinctive charm to the home.
