Well, it is certainly no secret that I love pretty. Each of these kitchens has pretty factor, but with it’s own twist of elegance and character. For me, pretty is in the details, small and large, and can be achieved in any space be it masculine or feminine. These 4 pretty kitchens embrace their own style and include just enough pretty. See? Pretty is for everyone.

Elements to Increase Pretty Factor in your Kitchen:

 

Tufting– Tufting creates visual interest in the best way possible. In the kitchen a tufted bench, chairs or even a banquette will work.

 

Curvy Lines– Tables, chairs, decorative moldings and cabinetry help break up and soften the lines of definitive fixed elements and hard surfaces like stone counter tops.

 

Delicate Patterns– Swirly curly patterns like trellis, lattice, florals, geometrics, botanicals and damask will add visual appeal to your kitchen and give you a motif you can repeat in small doses to unify the space.

Gloss and Shine– Objects that glisten pretty up even the darkest spaces. Look to lighting choices such as chandeliers, glass pendants, and drum chandeliers to bounce light around the room. Include accessories and dishware with elegant details and display some of them.

 

Colour Palette– Most colour palettes can be dressed pretty, however certain colour schemes welcome pretty readily. Of course white or white and silver would be at the top of my list, but work with whatever your colours are and personalize it to your taste. The result, (I’m sure) will be an eclectic pretty unlike any other space.

Textiles– Inject pattern and colour with the use of the textiles. A patterned carpet or set of curtains can set the tone for the room. You can also change them for a different look.

 

As you have seen in the 4 pretty kitchens pictured above, pretty things can be worked into your kitchen design in several easy ways and they really do make a difference in the overall look of the space.
