The kitchen is where a lot of creativity happens: sprucing up a classic dish, baking a new delicacy or mixing some potent potables. A modern country kitchen also has room for creativity in décor. Incorporating some vintage style pieces dresses up your cooking space.
That’s important, because you know visitors always end up gathered in the kitchen for some gab time (and a goblet of sangria).
These new, somewhat bold, selections have lots of potential to help you visualize how they could transform your home. Mixing in alternative styles to your farmhouse kitchen décor puts a fun twist on the traditional vibes without an overwhelming change in genre.
This guy reminded me of the general store on “Little House on the Prairie,” popped into a huge barrel of hard candy. We brainstormed ways to use the spoon as functional or simply as décor. For example, this spoon is an easy way to scoop some flour onto a surface for rolling out some dough.
I’m sure many of us agree that shelfscapes can be a little challenging to style. Incorporating wooden decor on your bookcase or shelving adds neutral ambiance and allows other aspects of the design to blend with ease. Consider filling the scoop with potpourri to give your room a lovely aroma.
After many requests for a breakfast serving tray, we stumbled across this beauty! The Grove Low Profile Rectangle Basket is shallow, yet long at 30” wide. The orangey-neutral hues of this basket would suit a traditional farm style home.
Displayed on your dining table as a gathering basket filled with natural bits and bobs, it makes for a great centerpiece. Hanging baskets on a kitchen wall is an alternative décor choice providing texture and dimension to a flat space.
We love that this basket will likely be used differently in each Rose Bud’s house. Lots of options! Tag our Instagram @purplerosehome to show us how you styled it.
Of course these are great for serving salad, and they look lovely displayed on a shelfscape, too, when they’re not in use. The light-toned wood wrapped in bamboo adds a subtle amount of rustic feeling into your space.
The placemat on your dining table helps communicate the overarching theme of your tablescape. The neutral, rustic look and feel of this one allows you some freedom to style the rest of your tablescape with some pops of color. Bohemian décor enthusiasts will love the jute and cotton material and the ragged edges.
Teak wood has many advantages that makes it perfect for long-lasting home furnishings, as it secretes an oil that protects it from mold and fungus. Because of this oil, teak wood is extremely durable and water resistant, therefore ideal as a shower stand or to place potted greenery or flowers atop.
Imagine the comments you’ll get from your friends once they catch a glimpse of your new stands!
We adore these wall shelves because they are simple but make a big impact. Incorporating metal into your home introduces a modern aesthetic, yet the wooden shelf ties into a natural and clean farmhouse vibe.
The shelves could be styled in a trio, pair or individually. The diagonal metal framing is striking against an earthy wall color. How about sage green?
What a gorgeous pair of sticks! The veins of the wood running throughout the pillars draw the eye. If you love the coastal farmhouse or natural look, consider adding wooden décor pieces like these. They add style and versatility to the mantel, bookshelf or end table.
This jute runner is my favorite of the new spring items! Imagine it laid across your dining room table. The jute texture and clever circular patterns will pop and give your tablescape that special something. Adding faux greenery and dinnerware accessorizes the table while still keeping the focal point on the runner. Or, what would you think about this on a dresser? Add some natural vibes to your get-ready space.
Acacia wood is known for its long-lasting quality. Yes, the spoon can be used as a utensil, but don’t hide it away in the drawer. Keep it on display and show it off - it’s gorgeous!
The black spoon pairs beautifully with the Callie Acacia Wood Black Cutting Board. Styling the spoon and cutting board together on your kitchen island is sure to be a conversation starter. Use the spoon as a serving utensil for dip, along with the cutting board for crackers and cheese; it’s a fun way to use these pieces together.
Incorporating subtle-meets-bold décor pieces in the kitchen may feel a little scary. I assure you, these won’t overtake your beloved light-and-airy farmhouse décor. Remember, bold décor is daring yet rewarding. Happy decorating!
