Good morning! Happy Wednesday!
Today I would like to talk about one of my favorite rooms in any house…the kitchen. Have you noticed over the past 10 years, maybe longer, that kitchens have evolved to a higher level of beauty? No longer is it just the functional room where we prepare food and bake the occasional batch of cookies or birthday cake.
Don’t get me wrong, we’re still performing those tasks, and the kitchen remains the hub of the family for most of us…but boy, has it been elevated to so much more. It now warrants a specific decor.
I love this design transformation. I like the idea of one more room in the house that can reflect personality and livability with style, all the while retaining it’s official duty as sustenance central, counselors office, coffee shop and all round work room.
So, its no surprise that I love the unexpected addition of mirrors and paintings that you find in so many kitchens that grace the internet as well as magazine pages. Why not?! Although there are a few mirrors in locations that make me wonder how often the window cleaner comes out from beneath the sink to shine the glass!
This is one of my favorites, this kitchen appears to be smallish, but the mirror and light fixture gives it style and elegance.
The juxtaposition of a nod to industrial style while hanging a vintage/antique portrait painting, lovely.
I really like the looks of open shelving with a little painting, or two….so pretty and adds so much interest to the kitchen.
This kitchen is a little busy for me, but I love the Hermes lamp and the art on the easel at the end of the room.
Isn’t this the greatest mirror for a kitchen? Notice the clock in the top of the mirror? I also like the refurbished vintage stove.
And last but not least, have you seen these mirrored subway tiles? How great would these be in a kitchen, if you could keep them free of water spots. :-)
Do you have a mirror or painting in your kitchen? What do you think of the idea?
Thanks for stopping by, it’s always nice to chat. ♥ Karen
