Got My Blue Back On The Plate Rack

Well- I attempted to have just white dishes on my plate rack for a different look, but after a few days it was just to bland for me.
 I also wanted to get away from the Americana look I had started because I was veering off track from my Tuscan and French deco.

  I fussed around a bit and used a mix of 
items to create a new look.
I have to admit I love a country cupboard look and even though this is a narrow plate rack is I think I achieved what I was goaling for.

This plate rack would be cute with doors that have chicken wire on them. 

Sunflower pitcher by Maxcera, Pottery Barn Moo Cow creamer, Milkhouse Creamery Candle

Bordallo Pinheiro Rooster Pitcher

Devon Cottage pattern by Johnson Bros.

 I loaded up my big cobalt blue vase with wheat and I stuck pine cones in my antique salt glazed bowl.

I snatched a picture off another wall to see what a portrait style frame would look like next to the plate rack and I like it.  

 I have this print of a rooster that I'm thinking of framing to go where the sunflower picture is so I can put that back where it was. 

Now I want to paint the walls a different color!  I'll wait a little while longer to bring that up with the hubs!

  7. Isn't it wild how one little ol' project can just blow up into 100 projects? Painting is such a huge project, especially in a room with lots of windows, doors and appliances in it. I pity your poor hubby when THAT project gets underway!!! :-)

    All your fussing with the plate rack paid off. It looks great!

    LOVE the chairs!!!!!!!!!! Also loving that gorgeous cobalt vase back there with the wheat in it!

  8. Liz,
    I love the addition of blue to your wall cupboard, dear friend!!!
    The elevated sugar bowl on the second shelf is enlightening!
    Many times, I use the glass lids from jar candles under a napkin or doily to add height.
    That Rooster print is going to makes a "pertect" pairing to your grouping!!!
    I adore these dining room chairs! The upholstery fabric is stunning!
    Visiting from MM @ BTNOTP!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  16. Hi Liz. I love that little shelf and all your pretties on it. Love the little cow creamer and those pretty blue and white dishes. Thanks for popping in to see me at Kiki's. We do have to pay to store her and it's off the island but it's the best place for us.
    Be a sweetie,

  21. Your eating area is so pretty! I love how you've styled that wall with the display rack and picture. The rooster picture will look great there as well. Love the wheat in the blue crock and your blue and white dishes mixed with the gold accent pieces. Very country French looking!

  23. I love your plate rack! I agree that the colorful collection looks better - more French, too, with the rooster and blue and white dishes. It's lovely!
