Addendum: Decorating and Styling to Distract
I came across this photo on Pinterest the other day and think it is absolutely the perfect addendum to my post "Decorating and Styling to Distract."
This kitchen looks pretty vintage to me. By that I mean a tad old. But with that fantastic navy paint on the back wall (notice how it disguises the wrinkled walls and pipes in the upper right hand corner) and those beautifully styled open shelves, you don't notice the other everyday cabinetry, counter top, stove, etc.
Look how the door on the left has been painted the same color. And what about that pretty blue and white chair? Does it always sit in front of the door? Not likely, but a what a great way to bring a little extra pattern and color closer to the floor for the photo. The gigantic vase of branches on the right provides the connection between the top and bottom of the photo (and might just disguise some kind of appliance behind it too).
Whoever designed this kitchen turned plain into fancy with a bit of paint and some amazing styling. He/she deserves big kudos!
Missing a source on this one. Can anyone provide the link?
