The picture shows a vase with red flowers and coffee cups grouped together. But look also on the window sill. You see even more places to add vignettes. It’s the accessories that will help bring your kitchen theme to life.

Make use of empty space above kitchen cabinets.  Even remove cabinet doors to show off your apple-themed dishes. Bowls, pitchers, mugs that are decorated with apples are both useful and decorative.

    Ohhhh, I love the color scheme of the first kitchen! It’s apple green and apple red mixed! What a treat for the eyes. I agree, the vignettes are the easiest way to decorate with a theme like apple kitchens. Great advice!

    Absolutely lovely! I am sadly not crazy enough about green to opt for the painted walls, but the splashes of color, I can definitely love and appreciate.
