It’s that time of the month.
That time I want to change something. Oh did you think I was talking about something else?:) Nope not that kind of blog.
I am pretty sure you have all seen what I have above our kitchen banquette. The chalkboard. When I first started sharing my home over on Instagram I was asked several times a day where someone could find my chalkboard. My fingers started to automatically type “it was a broken mirror that I painted with chalkboard paint” like a broken record. While I do still love that chalkboard and plan on keeping it. I am itching for a change in that space.
Incase you forgot- this is what it looks like now with the chalkboard-
I love artwork in a kitchen.
Artwork in a kitchen adds a personal touch, some charm and really brings the kitchen to life.
I have been having a hard time deciding what I want to do in here. So I have not made a decision. I started to think “what would I tell someone to do if they were having a hard time deciding on art?”
This is what I came up with-
Go through pictures you have saved on Pinterest or Screen shot on your phone. Or pull out a design book or magazine. What images do you notice you keep gravitating towards?
So I did just that. But my pictures of art in the kitchen are ALLLL over the place! Well kind of. I do notice a running theme. See if you can pick it out.
10 Kitchen Art Ideas-
#3- Colorful Eclectic Grouping of Art (source)
#4- Kids Art (source) I don’t think I will do this above our banquette but I sure love it. Isn’t it just so charming?
#5- Grouping of colorful art. This looks like children’s art too. Reminds me of THIS idea of turning kids art into framed works of art.
#5- Oil Paintings or Original Art (source)
#6- Antlers (source) I love me some antlers, but this wont really work in our tight kitchen. I used to have antlers above our chalkboard, but it got too busy.
#7- Graphic Art Print (source) I have loved this simple saying “Work hard and be nice to people” and in the kitchen is a great place to see it daily.
#8- Modern Poster Art- (source) This would be fun to have made to say New York City!
It is not my favorite here. It feels really farm house and not exactly the look I am wanting. But it was fun to try!
#10- Or here is an idea…No Art! This works because they have ship lap. But wouldn’t really work for me source
What do you think? What is your favorite look? I did consider a mirror, but then I remembered what I have told clients- I don’t want to watch myself eat….do you? (actually might help if you are trying to loose weight:)).
Did this help YOU determine what design style you love the most- what makes you happiest?
