Easy Ways to add Cottage Charm to your Kitchen

Easy ways to add cottage charm to your kitchen

Mix New & Old-
Painted shabby white cabinets or wood kitchen table. Add different style chairs found at flea markets and resale shops. Old Transferware dishes compliments everyday dishes. Add color with a bouquet of fresh flowers from the garden in a vintage pitcher.
Use Pattern-
Beautiful floral seat cushions with pretty vintage material pillows. Mix & Match with florals, ginghams, & stripes.
Use Beaded Board-
Very inexpensive panels can be installed on your walls or even ceiling to add a historical charm to your home. Easy to wipe off.
Add Color to Cabinets-
Paint or wallpaper the inside of glass-door cabinets and behind the shelves to show off your china collectibles and glassware.
And of course, Let the Sun Shine in
Natural light adds charm and comfort to any room. Use light and airy window treatments.
Have fun with your kitchen, find vintage accessories to add character. Don't be afraid of colors, I love to mix pastels and crisp colors. Fresh flowers always fills the house with pretty hues and scents.
