I don't do themed decorating unless there is a holiday involved and then the theme is the holiday.

Steel gray, dark vibrate blue, no clutter, made for cooking. Spices at the ready. Only a vase and cooper mold as a decoration.

I have no true theme to my kitchen. I have an Amy Brown kitchen fairy picture on the wall and two Elves Themselves kitchen elves on one counter. That's it.

I have a wine theme, I have an Eiffel tower wine rack with some wine in it. I also have a some big bottles to decorate. Someone gave me a gate with grapes. It's not an over clutter. I like it simple.

Our kitchen is part of a great room, so there is no theme- it is simply decorated to meld with the rest of the room- backsplash tiles are the same as the fireplace tiles. Cupboards are the same style as the built in bookshelves and fireplace surround. Pendant lights over the sink and island coordinate with the dining chandelier. I've got nothing in the space above the upper cabinets. The only thing on the counters are the necessary items: cannisters, espresso machine, a crock with cooking utensils beside the stovetop. Oh, and a vase with fresh flowers on the island. No fussy or non-essential chatchkes that require dusting or cleaning. I don't even have curtains- just white wooden blinds on the window over the sink.

We've always lived in the country so our kitchens(2) have reflected that.
There has been the duck years, the chicken & hens, & the cows!
Dh & I grew up in a large city centre concrete jungle so everything country
was special to us.

Since downsizing the animals had to go b/c our kitchen & living rm are now in the open concept design (same rm) so. . . The nautical decor clashed with the barnyard!

We still have one animal our golden retriever "Charlie". We have a pond with visiting ducks. We wake most mornings to our neighbour's rooster. We are smack in the middle of horse country so I'm not missing the farm look.

Except now theres sea glass everywhere! my friends live in atlantic city and theres a beach there where tons of it wash up. i have a huge glass jar filled to the top, and i have some big green glass jars on the countertop, which is white granite with silver sparkle flakes in it. looks great when the sun shines in off the of the bay!
Good to read about how you weathered Sandy. The decor sounds wonderful.

The walls are yellow with a Mickey border, the curtains are red and the floor is slate grey. I have various MM things towels, canister set, napkin holder, salt and pepper, timer. And MM dishes.

We don't have a theme, we have a style. Our entire apartment is mid-century modern. So, think clean lines, no clutter, space with a purpose, form within function.

We also have an open floor plan so the kitchen, dining room, and super huge living room all meld together. The last bit we need is something MCM for the fish tank but we have yet to find THE find.
