When choosing kitchen décor, keep it simplistic and elegant with one-colored objects. Good color schemes include white, black, hot red, light grey and aqua blue. Vases with real or fake flowers, lamps, empty or fruit-filled bowls and small greenery like bonsai trees all fit the look of modern kitchens. Large contemporary canvas art can also look really nice, just make sure it is simplistic and matches the rest of the kitchen.

earthy, with gold, burnt oranges, light greens, and mustard yellows. When shopping for kitchen decor look for cafe style furniture pieces, decorative pottery bowls, matching rugs, hanging pots
and baskets filled with Italian style foods, Italian style art, wrought iron metal organizers and bar stools and miscellaneous decor items that have an Italian connotation or design like chef
hats, wine, pizza and pasta and famous Italian landmarks.
A Dream-like Island Kitchen
Island themed kitchens feature cool colors that are refreshing and welcoming and are especially relevant if you live near a lake or coast.

All of these items can add an attractive edge to your kitchen if the decor matches the rest of the kitchen and is placed in a position that makes the kitchen appear neat and clutter-free.
