Tan & Black warms my country kitchen


The colors of tan and black are always present in my homestead kitchen but never more than during the wintertime. The golden browns add a  warmth to a New England weather, especially in this 216 year old house!


A favorite egg basket sums up the tan/ black love affair I have... 


Kitchen drawers that have been replaced with baskets add extra texture and contrast against my fridge I painted with chalkboard paint...


A chicken egg plate and little white faux eggs fill the bottom shelf basket.


I took off the wallpaper on my kitchen walls to expose the original plaster walls, a bit rough but I love it...


A barn board ceiling hides a far too gone ceiling and makes the kitchen very cozy. The old game board, in my winter combination of tan and black pull it all together . I hope you enjoyed and thanks for visiting...
