All About Art: In The Kitchen

A kitchen is no longer a place where only food is cooked, prepared, and served. Lots more things go into the kitchen in our days, it is a gathering place, a place to entertain, and a craft place for kids. Most times when the decoration is at stake, it is important to keep in mind the function and traffic of the space being decorated. The time has come to rethink our kitchen to reflect its new functions. Spice up your kitchen with a beautiful piece of art. It is elegant. An inspiring piece of art will elevate your kitchen. If you have a space for it, why not? If there is no space, it will not hurt to create one. Embrace changes. Check out these terrific inspirations.

Be different. Be unique. Add an unexpected piece in your kitchen. Check out the washout brick walls, so beautiful in this space. Back to the subject, the artwork is placed in the top of the counter. This is a great way to incorporate art into the kitchen. There are other alternatives then inserting a hole in the wall. Unable to trace the source of this picture.

Introduce gallery pieces in the kitchen. I love the look but I dislike that the artwork is placed above the sink. Always keep in mind the functionality of the space, expect lots of water splashes. Another way will seal the art. From Hello Colleenn

Look We Love: Layered Area Rugs

I’m overly obsessed with layered rugs. What a great way to define or enhance your Decor. Area rugs creates zones in the space, the bigger the rug the better. However, rugs are very expensive. If the right size is selected in the room, it creates luxury and it can make a room feel larger. Big rugs aren’t always affordable so buy a big inexpensive piece like jute, rattan, or seagrass and layered it with a small expensive but affordable piece. Finish touches in a room with great dimensions by matching or mixing rugs. Keep the color scheme in mind. Area rugs are great way to introduces new colors, textures, patterns and add comfort. I religiously searched for inspirations. Get inpired with these terrific rooms.
