Autumn in the Kitchen

Cottage Home

the blog:
Turquoise and Red
I was cleaning out the laundry room and set out
the apple swag I love to use for my autumn 
kitchen decor. I noticed the beautiful combination
made by pairing the apples with the turquoise blue
platters that had been part of the summer decor.
I introduced the turquoise and red color combination a while
back when I painted my desk. I shared this and a few other projects
The Spring/Summer look to the kitchen hutch.
Thus began the inspiration for the color combination
for the autumn decor transformation of our kitchen hutch.
I searched for what I could find that would compliment these
colors. I remembered I had painted a few canning jars
turquoise and thought they’d make a lovely addition.
I chose pewter and aged silver as an accent color.

 I left the dried lavender in the white pitchers on top
of the hutch and added a few more autumn colors
for added interest. 
On my desk I changed a few things by adding the
Wardian case I had as well as adding a rooster
candle lamp. I love the addition of roosters 
and chickens in my fall kitchen decor.
A few more changes to the corner were done. I hung
a whimsical decor showing a chicken and a few eggs, 
I hung a couple copper decor, the decoupage Lazy Susan, 
and added one of the chinese boxes I purchased years back
at an antique store. I placed the two red boxes on the
I placed the yellow chinese box atop the plate rack over the
kitchen’s peninsula. I chose to use items that reflect the fall 
harvest season on the plate rack. I had recently canned
some pears and love their amber color.
My son gave this rooster artwork to me. It was an art
project  done by one of his college friends.
Throughout the year I keep this French Market Basket, large
Ironstone pitcher and apple swag atop the kitchen cabinets.
The last thing I changed was this pitcher for the blue and white pitcher 
that sits on the stool by the hutch.
I am quite pleased with the warmth created by the 
autumn decor changes – most especially pleased
with the turquoise and red combination this year.
I appreciate your visit! I hope you have a Delightsome week!
