Yellow Yellow Yellow!
I love yellow!
This bright and sunny color is the first color of spring as the daffodils have already started pushing up through the ground and forsythias are almost ready to bloom. As you know we are making a few changes in the look of our kitchen. Last year right before Christmas, Mr. Rosemary Lane added bead board to the lower portion of our walls which were then painted white. To compliment our honey toned cabinetry the upper portion of the walls are painted in a pretty gray color from Benjamin Moore called Chelsea Gray. In an effort to lighten up the kitchen for the warmer months I decided to add pops of yellow in the way of window treatments, flowers and table runner.
The sweet white and gold check valances are from Country Curtains. The print is called Woodbury Check and I decided on a simple tailored style for the kitchen.
A relatively new collection of white glass and ceramic pieces were added to the shelf above the black sliders. (Of which in my perfect dream world instead of sliders there would be two gorgeous window pane French doors swinging out to the back porch area.) I found most of the pieces at thrift shops, Michael's and Home Goods. I really love the bold contrast between the gray walls and white vases, pitchers, teapots and gravy boats.
Even the chair seats received new fabric to replace the rather dingy looking material I put on them 3 years ago.
The table runner is from Home Goods. I love the way it pulls together the yellow/gold of the curtains along with the gray wall color and seat fabric.
Finally a rustic metal pot I picked up for $1 from Restore serves as the perfect vessel to hold some pretty yellow and white faux tulips to adorn the kitchen table.
Currently Mr. Rosemary Lane is working on adding board and batten to our kitchen island. Will update you on that later. And I did make a final decision as far as which light fixture to go with over that kitchen island, so stay tuned for that post as well. In the meantime enjoy this final week of winter as we get ready to say..
