Colors of Summer
Welcome to the Colors of Summer Blog Tour, hosted by Jennifer at Town & Country Living…where many of my talented blogger friends joined to share our favorite colors for summer decor.
The colors of summer are so vibrant, so pretty and bold. While I do love a beautiful pop of color, today I chose white and copper to use as an accent color in our farmhouse kitchen.
I was inspired by this vintage French copper kettle I found a few weeks ago at a local antique shop. I rubbed ketchup over the entire pot to restore the patina and shine. And, because my garden is overflowing with flowers right now, I filled the pot with hydrangeas and butterfly bush blooms. It makes for a nice centerpiece on our island.
I have a few other copper pieces in our kitchen.
I found a small colander and mini kettle at Homegoods that I have on our coffee station.
Although these aren’t vintage pieces, they play nicely with the large kettle. And of course, more fresh white flowers.
And lastly, I have a vanilla bean candle from WildLust Wicks in this beautiful copper vessel. It smells heavenly and has a wooden wick that sounds like crackling fire while burning. After it’s burned down, I can reuse it as a succulent vase or utensil holder.
And my last copper pieces came from my mom’s collection. She had a few special pieces she found while traveling, and passed them on to me. I’ve enjoyed using the saucepan while cooking, and I usually have it hanging on the hook rack for storage and display. I put fresh oregano in the little copper bowl.
The fresh flowers mixed with copper is a beautiful mix for summertime. And I love using vintage pieces like the copper kettle to display fresh flowers from our garden.
