If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, you know how much I love real art of some kind in a house! In fact, I think it’s so important in interiors that I made it one of the tenets of my series, Collected Look Essentials. However, one of the things I most love – an absolute favorite – is art in the kitchen!
When real art is used in a kitchen, it sets my heart aflutter. I’m not sure why… maybe it’s the contrast of all the cool, crisp white with old crumbly paintings in chippy gilded frames, but it is something I immediately gravitate to. The art creates character in a way that not much else does. And yes, I think it is that contrast that really appeals to me. Adding something antique, especially in a sleek, smooth room like a kitchen, adds warmth and really ups the charm factor!
I’m lucky to have the little mantel in my kitchen over my range where I love to do my seasonal decorating. But when it’s not decked out for Christmas or Easter, it often has a painting of some kind leaning there.
I often add this oil with the richer colors for the fall season.
In this kitchen, I love how one quiet piece of art in a gold frame is just casually leaning on the counter. Via Taste Design Chic.
