When we finish picking up and lightly cleaning our kitchen, there's always that one last thing we do that puts the finishing touch on this space for us. We always take out a colorful dish towel and drape it over our oven door handle. That simple gesture with a décor element always "finishes" the kitchen in our mind.
Though we don't have a large collection of them, we certainly consider dish towels and tea towels to be a part of the décor of our kitchen. We even consider aprons, which we hang on a hook, to be a part of bringing the color in. While it might seem like a trivial element, we happen to think dish towels, tea towels and aprons create quite a big impact on the look of the space. Do you?
Do you consider dish towels or aprons and other small elements as part of your kitchen décor? If so, do you hang them from hooks? Or drape them over handles? What gives your kitchen that finishing touch?
