Country Kitchen Details


For me, it's all the little, detail touches that make a room special and noteworthy!
Not valuable things, but interesting pieces of one's life and loves, added with no real purpose, but just because it makes you happy. That is what I consider when I style a vignette in my home.

I much prefer vintage accessories, rather than new ones. I like to think they have a storied past, a history, and nothing can beat the patina you find in vintage treasures. Chips and scrapes just add character.

The Italian Capodimonte chandelier adds beautiful character and interest to my kitchen eating area in our small conservatory. Although it is a fine, delicate piece, it brings interest and a touch of elegance to my country kitchen.
