On Trend: Vintage Chic Kitchens
Enhance Your Kitchen with Alley Cat Products
One of the top trends this this year is adding character to your kitchen with vintage touches, or even a complete vintage transformation. We are teaming up with Alley Cat Chic to pair fresh new appliances with gorgeous vintage furniture and home décor. Here are some of our favorite combinations for a vintage chic kitchen that makes your house feel like a home.
This year, we are loving the ease of monochromatic color schemes. Monochromatic color schemes are great for staying on trend because it is easy to give your staple pieces an Annie Sloane makeover whenever you want. We are entranced by white appliances, and we love how they pair with Alley Cat Chic furniture painted in “Paris Grey” by Annie Sloane. Just the name “Paris Grey” makes us feel vintage chic. We love how Alley Cat Chic turns vintage pieces into masterpieces with beautiful shades of Annie Sloane chalk paint.
Texture Texture Texture!
There are many ways to use texture to give your kitchen a vintage fix. One of our favorite trends is currently a faux shiplap, painted with Annie Sloane chalk paint, of course. Shiplap on empty wall space can transform an ordinary looking room into a vintage chic kitchen straight from the movies.
Another way to incorporate texture into your kitchen is by adding wooden accessories. Alley Cat Chic offers an assortment of vintage home décor accessories that are perfect for adding texture to empty spaces. One of our favorite ways to add detail is quotations written on wooden panels – these also look beautiful with chalk paint.
Grow Your Own Mini Garden
This might seem like a minor detail – but mini-gardens are a great way to use your green thumb towards your vintage kitchen goals. Head on over to Alley Cat Chic and pick up a few small ceramic plant pots, then paint with Annie Sloane paint for a pop of color. Place these in the windowsill for a quick vintage touch. This is a decorating touch that you will use, every time you pluck a fresh herb to put straight into a favorite recipe!
You don’t have to be brave to go bold with Annie Sloane’s Chalk Paint, because you can always paint over it. Go as bold as you would like this season and paint your kitchen chairs a vibrant new shade. Our favorite colors to brighten up the room are “Arles” and “Provence.” These lively tones are a great way to give your kitchen the spice-up you have been craving.
