An Italian chef kitchen décor isn't just for chefs or Italians! Everyone can enjoy this fun and elegant kitchen decorating theme. There's even accessories that depict chefs that you can use to bring a more "chef like" appearance to the decor and of course you will want to accessorize with gadgets and whatnot that are useful to chefs.
When I picture Italian chef kitchen décor, I think of a kitchen with lots of architectural interest. Maybe some rough plaster walls and columns. If you don't already have this in your kitchen you can do some wonderful faux painting that emulates rough plaster and you can pick up a free standing column at an antique or garden shop and incorporate it into a corner even saw it in half lengthwise and attach to the wall so it looks like the column is coming out of the wall.
If you are able to purchase new counters think about getting marble - Italy is known for it's beautiful decorative marble so this will look right at home. Another option is to go with concrete counters to add a bit of warmth and function to your Italian chef kitchen décor. The concrete will blend nicely with the rough plaster walls too.
No Italian chef kitchen décor would be complete without the accessories a chef might have in his restaurant or kitchen! How about some large decorative bottles of oil with giant red peppers and olives inside. Some wine bottles and cheese dish is essential. For the table, an old basket covered wine bottle with a candle in it and a setting of pasta bowls adds an authentic decorative touch.
For other decorative touches, try adding some urns with flowers and lots of greenery. You can decorate the walls with Italian scenes, red pepper prints or even use the Williams and Sonoma Chef's Series plates for wall décor. Another accent that might look nice is an Italian chef wine bottle holder (It's a little Italian chef that holds the bottle).
