I added a few fall accents around the kitchen with yellows and golds this year.
I have really enjoyed the yellow I added over the summer, and wanted to keep that for fall.
Since my mom decorated our childhood dining room with branches of fall leaves for my grandparents' 50th anniversary back in 1976, I have loved doing the same. They don't last long, though, even in water.
Late this summer, I found a fabric remnant on a trip to my local store that I just loved. There was enough to make pillow covers, a couple runners and window panels for the kitchen.
I took down the cafe curtains and valance and added the panels and a bamboo shade.
I was seriously thinking about painting the upper cabinets a lighter grey, but when I found this fabric, I was glad I hadn't done that.
I really like how the floral fabric works with the dark wood.
I kept the shelves pretty much the same from summer. I'm not sure what got into me, but I really like them this way, and again, the fabric really tied everything in so nicely.
I just love the blue with the rich gold, and it's such a nice alternative to the usual fall colors. Really, we have amazing Carolina blue skies in the fall and more yellow leaves than anything else, so this combo is a natural choice.
I love my kitchen, and I sure wish it was always this clean:-)
But, we are a family of five so it is a working kitchen, and I wouldn't have it any other way:-)
