Designer Robin Baron gave this elegant country kitchen the perfect finishing touch with an ornate scalloped valance above the sink. “I always say “great design is in the details“ and this beautiful valance is a perfect example” says Baron. “I used the detail of iron hooks to create the dramatic pleating in lieu of a traditional pole and embellished the classic linen floral fabric with tassel trim and matching tape giving weight and importance to this country-inspired valance.”
Prefabricated outdoor kitchen kits are an easy budget-friendly way to add a kitchen to your backyard or patio. Modular outdoor kitchens are available in a variety of styles with popular accessories like compact refrigerators stainless steel cabinets and custom countertops.
Fruit in a beautiful dish always looks great on a kitchen counter or on an island. The marble backsplash in this kitchen by Kapito Muller Interiors is the perfect backdrop to show off the bright yellow of the lemons. You could create a similar look with oranges or limes.
“I like the whimsical pulls used as a detail put here and there to personalize the kitchen. They say I like grapes or I love antique cars and they ll always have a place“ says Morea. “That kind of whimsy works really well at a second home or a vacation home. I have one client in Florida for example who used 125 hardware pieces in one beach house kitchen all starfish and it looked great. Pulls shaped like twigs and leaves work in a mountain retreat kitchen.“ In an ordinary kitchen pulls in fun shapes and colors strike a nice note when used sparingly. “For a personal touch I might use a few on a wine drawer or the doors of a wet bar or maybe one or two on overhead cabinets that aren t real close to the main cabinets.“
Plants are a great accent to use when styling your kitchen counters. You can either use one plant like in this kitchen by House of Jade Interiors or use several plants throughout your space. You could even grow fresh herbs and keep those out on the counter.
This kitchen by designer Jessica McClendon is a great example of how you can use cutting boards as decor. You can use a variety of different types and shapes of boards including wood and marble then lean them against your backsplash.
