Last Sunday, I was watching the latest season for HGTV's Design Star. Their assignment was "Dream Kitchen" and, as I am looking for ideas to re-do my own kitchen, I was hyped. They had to design four of the most popular kitchen layouts, one of which was the two-wall Galley (which is what I have). Lots of good ideas. I think the best key learning was to not be afraid to use bold color on the walls!
My eye, however, went directly to the gorgeous flower arrangements used in the staging of the completed kitchens. There were two arrangements that I loved:
The first was for a "country" style kitchen and laid out multi-colored tulips in an old-looking, wooden packing crate. They look as though you just picked them from the garden. Lovely!
The second one I loved even move (probably because it's more my style). This was from the "global" themed kitchen and used a shiny bulb-shaped, hammered metal vase with bold pink tulips. Using a singular color of flower took this arrangement from "pretty" to "gorgeous".
Flowers can add so much style to any room! So next time you are throwing a house party, make sure to stock up on flowers (even simple carnations) and display them all over for warmth and interest.
