Brown and white might seem like boring hues, but they are anything but lackluster, especially in a traditional kitchen. Cabinetry and furnishings in a deep rich shade of brown can be lovely. White contrasts beautifully with the dark hue, and it coordinates with the shine that naturally emanates from the surface when it is hit by natural or artificial light. It can look rich, exquisite, and very inviting.
The last kitchen that I designed was chocolate brown and lily-white. The results were stylish and very impressive. My client selected dark oak cabinets boasting heavy duty slide rails, deep brown Corian countertops, a white island, and beautiful Pergo flooring. It was my job to come up with the finishing touches that would make the traditional kitchen warm and inviting. I wanted to find ways to add life with color.
Display Green Plant Life in White Milk Glass
White milk glass is a traditional collectible glassware, and when decorating a brown and white kitchen, it is a lovely addition. Display green plant life in white milk glass when decorating a brown kitchen. The white glass will contrast beautifully with the cabinets and countertops, and the greenery will add natural color and appeal.
When decorating my client’s traditional kitchen in brown and white, I purchased a milk glass vessel that would be used to hold a beautiful peperomia plant. I provided adequate drainage by adding a layer of pebbles, and I filled the vessel with rich organic soil. Consider a single plant when decorating a kitchen in brown and white, and use a traditional milk glass container instead of a planter. A single green plant in a beautiful container is far more impressive than dozens of plants in ordinary plastic pots.
Decorating with Beautiful Faux Blooms on a Tiered Platter
I prefer to use unexpected items when decorating homes. After all, why use the same decorating accessories as everyone else? Unique items are much more impressive, and some of the most unique items of all have alternate uses. Consider decorating a brown traditional kitchen with a beautiful white tiered platter. Add color and appeal by adding flower heads in colors and varieties of your choice. When decorating my client’s brown and white traditional kitchen, I filled the tiered platter with high-quality flower heads in lavender and blue. It looked amazing.
Create a Focal Point on a Single Wall
When decorating a kitchen or any room in the home, choose wall art that will become the focal point of the space. With the approval of my client, I chose an oversized work of sculpted metal for a bare kitchen wall. It was comprised of a brown planter filled with blue and violet hydrangeas. It was one of the most beautiful wall hangings that I had ever found, and it looked great on the bare tan wall. The colors brought more attention to the blooms on the tiered platter. With the deep brown cabinets, flooring, and other decors, my client’s traditional kitchen looked absolutely amazing.
