My kitchen has apple green walls and lots of blue accents - the curtains, the placemats, the dishes we use and the dishes that hang on the wall.
But it needed something.....
So I emptied my display shelves (which still held Easter decor) and gave myself a blank slate:
I then dug through my bins of favourite objects and pulled everything I had that was:
Yep. That's what my kitchen needs.
I tried to mix the three colours all over the shelves. You'll see that the 3 shots of red are balanced throughout.
Here are the top 2 shelves:
I bought these red candlesticks at Christmas last year. I love their shape and shine.
My mom bought me these gorgeous pitcher. She saw it and knew I had to have it!! Look at those delicate flowers!!
I bought this jug at the thrift shop a few years back. So pretty and it reminds me of the forget-me-nots that grew around the house that I was a toddler in.
This red bucket was a thrifty find too. It held glittery balls back at Christmastime. Now it holds some silk daisies. (Not much longer until my REAL daisies bloom.... C'mon summer!)
Isn't this lovely? I found this during my most recent Goodwill visit. I am sure it is pot used to deliver flowers to hospitals or something, but I love the raised flowers on it.
Filled with fake geraniums, it is the perfect balance to the red candlesticks and bucket.
There! The perfect bit of zing for the breakfast area of the kitchen. Now what needs sprucing up next?? Yes....over there.....
See you soon!
