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...


Linked with the lovely marketplace at COMMON GROUND- do not miss it every Monday.
