Personalizing Your Kitchen With Scraps

Marie Claire Maison has a photo of a cheap and cheerful Paris kitchen that was brightened up on a shoestring.

Stylist Sandrine Place used brightly colored stickers to add a pop look to her basic white appliances and IKEA staples. And she painted her cement floor a bright blue. With a bistro table, Chinese stools, an industrial light fixture and odds and ends from the brocante, she’s created a personal and light-hearted space that keeps the room from feeling anonymous.
