I have heard many sweet and wonderful things about Tobi Fairley’s mom Beverly Wells and what an amazing hostess she is! When I saw this beautiful Christmas house in turquoise and green decorated by Tobi and Beverly, I had to post it here!
See how the gray countertops have been brought to life by the turquoise? If you want to have fresh walls or cabinets and white is too much maintenance? Gray is the one. I chose gray for the countertops in my mom’s kitchen as well (lighter than this one).
What I love about what Tobi and Beverly did in this kitchen is they treated the saltillo tile floors like a pair of jeans since they in no way relate to the cabinets or countertops (a mantra you hear on this blog over and over). Notice however that what pulls the tile into this kitchen is the red/orange stain on the tabletop. So brilliant!
See the Pellegrino? If your kitchen is lacking in a little colour and styling, just buy three bottles and line them up somewhere along the backsplash.
Here the fresh yellow walls bring the grays in the area rug and chairs to life!
A totally fresh and beautiful palette for Christmas!
Love the kelly green Christmas balls!
After seeing this kitchen with the floors and considering there is so much of it in the South I have decided that maybe you can treat terra cotta tiles like a “neutral” if you have them.
Over to you my lovelies, what do you think? It’s really pretty here but do you think you could pull it off in your house?
