There is something about a kitchen that makes me want to take out all of my aprons and bake and whistle and sing all day. I completely despise cooking, so whistling and singing it is! There are two main color schemes that I'm attracted to for a kitchen. The first is the classic 1940's red/yellow scheme which often times incorporates cherries and daisies. There is such a classic femininity that goes along with this. PLUS you get to use a lot of gingham if you so choose. I'm pretty sure Emma is in agreement with me when I say that you can NEVER use too much gingham. I was on the verge of taking this route a few weeks ago, but I've been steadily collecting kitchen items of a more pastel nature for the past few years. Which brings me to the second scheme I'm attracted to for kitchens, and that is the 1950's pastel look. Its a bit kitschy, yes, but it makes for such a pretty set up! Honestly, who can deny the classic turquoise/pink/yellow scheme that was once so popular?
I really hope you all enjoyed looking at these pieces as much as I did! Maybe I even helped you out with some new ideas for your own kitchen! How do you decorate your kitchen? Do you have a color scheme? Do you prefer to display your items or keep everything tucked away? Until next time!
