Nice. And apparently, they didn't.

Finally, no "theme" in my kitchen. We just gutted and redid the one here in NC and everything is high tech. Never had that before and we're loving it. Back in FL, our house is Victorian and the kitchen has an art deco theme but it *works* for that particular house.

No theme. I have two pictures hanging in the breakfast area that are beach scenes. Yes, beach in the mountains...how wonderful. lol I have beach touches and Mickey touches all through the house. But uncluttered is freeing!!

Same as the theme for my entire house - "things I like!" I tend to decorate in neutrals with a couple of obvious accent colors, but my kitchen doesn't even have a strong color identity!

More of a color scheme than a theme. My walls are barn red and a buttery yellow. I have large paintings my daughter made and large family photographs above the cabinets, with some (yes, fake) greenery in between.

I also use the area above the cabinets to display some seasonal decorations, so my kitchen theme changes with the seasons.

Same here... More of a color scheme rather than theme.

Mine is autumn colors. The walls are mainly a burnt orange color with a lot of slightly off white accents(window frames and such). There is some green, yellow, and brown that don't really stand out but just kind of "work".

I took my inspiration from fall leaves on the trees.

I call my theme "calm chaos" sometimes it's clean and sometimes it's not.

I have some pictures up that I enjoy and a big board to leave messages for each other or guests. My towels are just matching in color nothing decorative on them.

I always wanted a theme kitchen but I'm too lazy to collect anything.

I don't have much of a "theme", but I do that on purpose.


This is my kitchen when we first finished building our house. Not much has changed except it is less cluttered (we were in the middle of a move LOL), the fridge is much newer and bigger (we replaced that crappy little "builder's model" one right away), and there is an old-fashioned large clock in the space above the sink.

I change my "theme" with the seasons. Right now I have green-and shamrock kitchen towels for St. Patrick's Day, and a vase of daisies on the counter. Also a green candle. After St. Patrick's Day, I will change to an Easter theme.

When I have no holiday theme to decorate for, my fall-back theme is palm trees - I have a cool set of towels and linens with palm trees against a cream and tan tropical looking (but understated) background. I also have dishes with a palm tree design.

I don't use themes. Even my kids' rooms are themeless, unless you count Every Toy They Own On The Floor as one!

My kitchen walls have some old china and ironstone platters hanging, some old silverplate on a serving counter, and a 70s poster of the Plaza from KCMO- where we used to live (and I still miss). I try to keep the counters reasonably clear but that is a constant battle. I prefer only having stuff I use everyday on them. My serving counter ends up being a dumping ground, though. You've inspired me to get that cleaned up today, thanks!

Since you're starting over, I would suggest bringing just a few decorative items back in and only those that you find beautiful or have a sentimental attachment to. Keep only necessary, functional things on the countertops. Besides, clutter finds it's way there eventually!
