Inspiring Art in the Kitchen

Inspiring Art in the Kitchen

Maybe it's all the appliances or all the life that occurs, but even in highly decorated kitchens there's sometimes a lack of art. It's a shame, really, because just like in any other room, art can really bring in a lot of interest, excitement and "pop" to a kitchen.

For almost a year I had a piece of art framed and ready, leaning up against my bedroom wall, because I could not for the life of me think of an open spot in my apartment to put it. It took about ten months for it to dawn on me: the wall above my stove! Now with it hanging comfortably in a formerly blank spot in the kitchen, I can hardly imagine the space without it. I wonder how many other people have had similar experiences?

The occupants of these ten Apartment Therapy house tours no doubt realize the importance of art in their kitchen — no matter how big or small that piece of art is. We gathered ten kitchens with art that we thought did a good job of incorporating color and personality simply — pieces that complement the room and really create a cohesive space.
