Kitchen Decorating Italian Style

Kitchen decorating Italian style evokes images of a cozy café filled with greenery and bountiful fruits and vegetables. This style incorporates strong architectural elements with natural elements and warm colors. Here’s some ideas on how you can transform your kitchen into an Italian eatery.

Color
Kitchen decorating Italian style favors warm and natural colors. A muted mustard yellow or slate tone on the walls. If you can texture the walls or faux paint them so that they have the look of rough plaster that is all the better. The floors should be a bit darker - slate, brick, wood or italian tile will do nicely.

Lighting
Your lighting should have an architectural flair. Wrought iron fixtures or metal scrolly style chandeliers and sconces can add elegance. Chippy painted wood or metal lighting can add interest. For your pendant lighting, stick to either a subtle color glass shade or brushed metal - stay away from shiny metals.

Window Treatments
Your window treatments can be either subtle roll down shades or add a dramatic flair. How about using a rounded awning on the inside above your window to emphasize your dramatic kitchen decorating with Italian style. Stay away from anything too frilly and stick to earth tones and muted colors.

Furniture
Think bistro! Rounded tables in glass with wrought iron, or mosaic top tables. I have even seen slate top tables that would be great for this type of decor. Add wrought iron chairs to complete the look. Try using a tall pub style table and chairs instead of the usual height. If you pick on that is the same height as your eat on counters, you can mix and match the taller stools between the table and counter.

Accessories
Kitchen decorating Italian style has a bountiful look so load your counter tops with decorative bottles of olive oil with colorful peppers and olive inside. Add some old world architecture by placing sculpted metal or concrete bowls of fruits and leaves around. Add lots of greenery to make the area cozy. A wine rack is a must - either the floor type if you have room or one to display on the counter. If you have a lot of wall space, you might consider an Italian wall mural. Adding italian tile is a nice touch - you could try to just add some along the back splash for a nice accent.
