In last month’s tablescape blog hop, I shared a Fall on the Farm Rooster Table. Today’s post is in response to requests to see more of my everyday rooster kitchen decor and tableware.
As I explained previously, I fell in love with the black Tuscany rooster while on an Italian vacation. It was after that trip, that I decided to accent the kitchen with black in the rugs, window valances and decor elements. It was perfect timing, because we had recently gutted our builder-grade kitchen and three bathrooms.
I can hardly believe my ‘new’ kitchen is now nearly 15 years old! Now, it has neutral tan birch cabinets, tile floor, stainless steel appliances, and grey in the wrap around counters and chandelier. The tile backsplash is a matte cream, with fruit and vegetable relief accents. Check out the three-part Remodeled Kitchen Design & Layout Tour for pictures and details.
Today, I’m sharing more of my kitchen decor and tableware, during the times when it’s not set with seasonal or holiday decorations.
The inspiration for today’s farm rooster table comes from a September vacation spent in Italy. While there, we visited the mountain-top town of San Gimignano, and were introduced to it’s legendary Tuscan black rooster.
Today, I’m joining a group of talented and creative stylists for a tablescape blog hop, hosted by Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate. Bee sure to visit the links to all the other fabulous fall tablescapes, at the end of the post.
Today’s farm rooster table is more of a transition into the season, than an actual fall tablescape. It’s just too darn hot and swampy here in Pittsburgh for pumpkins and mums. With the temperatures and humidity so high, it feels more like the tropics! I just couldn’t send dear husband up into the sweltering attic for fall decor to set a table. Instead, on Labor Day, we went kayaking and then took my Scottie to a doggy dip fundraiser. As I write this post, it’s 95 degrees outside!
After the coastal summer decor is packed away, September is the time my house goes back to it’s unadorned state. That still leaves two entire months to set and enjoy the table for fall. In the meantime, transition to the season with a farm style rooster table.
