How to Decorate a Winter White Farmhouse Kitchen

| |

Our kitchen looked so bare when I took down the holiday decor. So I grabbed some wreaths and decorated my winter white farmhouse kitchen.

I also decided to tackle a project that I have been thinking about for about … ten years! Can you guess what it is? Look closely at this photo and you just might guess.

A Cozy Winter White Farmhouse Kitchen

The perfect antidote to wintery cold is to create a cozy feeling inside your home. While the definition of cozy may be different for each of us, it is a feeling that we all know, in our bones.

Cozy can mean so many different things, curled up in front of a fire, a big bowl of chowder with freshly baked bread, or reading a book under a pile of quilts. For me, cozy means comfort and there is no better place to create a cozy feel than in the kitchen.

During the holidays, our kitchen is festooned with holiday wreaths and ribbons and is bustling for the entire month of December. When the calendar rolls over to the New Year, the kitchen seems a little bare and lonely, and definitely needs a big fat dose of cozy.

Having a white farmhouse kitchen affords me the opportunity to add and subtract color with each new season to create a whole new feel in the kitchen. This year, it has been unbelievably cold and rainy here in Southern California. The winter color palette that I choose, taupe and sage green, has warmed up the kitchen perfectly!

Variations of Green

Using variations of the color green helps to create dimension and warmth. I counted eleven different colors of green in the photo above and I may have missed a few.

While the boxwood wreaths are a darker green, they echo the greenery seen through the windows and are tempered with the warmer tones that the scale, bowls, and a few Christmas balls add.

The All White Wall Spick Rack

Have you noticed my all-white wall spice rack?

It’s similar to the green one I used to own but I made this one! The DIY is in my book, A Home to Share, and you can also find the links to where you can find these awesome tins.

This is an easy project and just the best wall spice rack!

Cozy Winter Decor

I bought new rugs for the kitchen a few years ago. I absolutely love them and I love the subtle addition of color that they add and they definitely have cozied up the kitchen.

The kitchen now feels cozy and serene. I love to sit at the kitchen island in the morning with a cup of coffee, planning my day.

Adding decor doesn’t mean buying all new things, I always say to shop your home first. I also love to use items for their unintended purpose, like a cake stand with a bowl on top of it, instead of a cake!

Are you wondering about the kitchen project I finally tackled? Be sure to check tomorrow’s post where I will share all of the details! Here’s a hint, it’s in the kitchen.

I hope that you have been inspired to bring something new into your winter kitchen by adding some color. Adding a few items, either ones you already have or new ones can help you create a cozy winter kitchen too!
