As we prepare to move, I was packing up some of the kitchen decor. It dawned on me that I was really over the color scheme in my kitchen. There are a lot of things different in the new kitchen and I think I want to change my decor. I started thinking about different color schemes and what would go good together and what I am in the mood for. But I wasn't sure if I was on the right track. So, I did what any woman would do....I called my big sister.
I ran my ideas by her. You see, I am falling in love with blue and green together. It is so light and airy and so different from my current kitchen. And since we are going to grow herbs in the kitchen window seal, I thought the blue and green would be a good way to go. But my dilemma is that I have some roosters and sunflower items that I love as well. My sister, who's house looks like something out of Country Living magazine, told me I can incorporate a few roosters and sunflowers into the blue/green theme so it adds some "pop". I loved the idea so I checked out the Internet (as usual) and found that French Country decor (which I love) incorporates a lot of blue, green, red and yellow. Here are a few decor ideas that hit my fancy.
This touch of yellow in this one does add that extra zing.
I love this rooster and sunflower together. The rooster has the colors I want to use in it and they do look pretty good together.
After I saw a bunch of blue/green kitchens and realized that I definitely am going to go that route, I decided to check out Etsy for some blue/green kitchen items. Here are some of the things I saw that I would like to incorporate into my new theme.
I'm loving this cookie jar. I always have cookies or candy and could use a new cookie jar. I may have to add that to my antique shopping list.
I have a recipe box that I have been using for close to 30 years now. I think it is time to change to a new one. This incorporates my new color scheme along with my herbs.
I have one cabinet in the new place that has a frosted, etched glass front so I thought about displaying any vintage bowls in that cabinet. This one would be perfect.
I thought this was a cute canister set, but it wouldn't be good for me. As much as I bake, I have canisters that hold 5 pounds of sugar and 5 pounds of flour.
I love this little juice pitcher.
I need to get a cream and sugar set so I'm going to look for a vintage one when I go antique shopping later this month. This one was cute. It kinda goes with one of the bowls I liked.
Well, now I've gotten myself in the mood to go shopping. Since I'm heading out tomorrow to birthday shop for my grandson Colby, I think I'll make a stop at Kohl's to check out tablecloths. They are one of my major weaknesses. You can change the whole look of a room, simply by putting out a new tablecloth. Hope everybody has a great weekend.
