Nothing adds charm and character quite like art in the kitchen! Take a peek at this growing trend and it’s easy to see why it’s becoming more and more popular!
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 wrote a blog post earlier this year with five of my top tips on adding art to your home. However, one of the things I most love – an absolute favorite – is art in the kitchen!
When I see real art used in a kitchen, it sets my heart aflutter. The contrast of the cool, crisp white with old paintings in chippy gilded frames 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 tons of warmth and really ups the charm factor!
This year in I removed this little antique oil painting from it’s ugly frame and rested it on the mantel over the range and I love it! It brings the perfect amount of color and vintage charm to the space.
I often add this oil with the richer colors for the fall season.
I’m lucky to have the 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, I often feature a painting of some kind leaning there.
Other things that add warmth to a white kitchen and create that French farmhouse are bread boards, baskets, wood floors or beams, copper pots, and stone or brick.
