Have you ever regretted a choice you made? When we were building our house, I selected black granite for our kitchen counter tops and instead of a tile backsplash, I had the granite go all the way up--lots of black. I also chose dark cabinets. Therefore, my beautiful kitchen is quite dark, and I feel I must have some pops of bright color to break up all that dark. My solution is pictured below. Notice, please the very large, Blue pitcher on top of the refrigerator.
In addition to my love of Blue, I love lemons, and when I spotted this pitcher (in a furniture store!), I took a deep breath and without much hesitation, spent too much money for it. I do not regret this purchase, though. The Blue is a shaded cobalt Blue and has movement to it.
Lemons are repeated in the wire bike basket on top of the cabinet. Here's a shot of the bike basket of faux lemons and oranges.
Recently, Johnny broke the top of the large canister. I thought that it'd be easy to replace, and we returned to the store where we purchased the first set. They had none. Since then, I've shopped and shopped--both in local stores and online. (sigh) I've discovered that ceramic canisters are no longer so easy (or cheap) to find.
I finally purchased this set. It's called Villeroy and Boch French Garden Charm Canisters. I like the fruit in 3-D on the tops. One canister pictures lemons that tie in with my Blue lemon pitcher and the bike basket of lemons. The middle canister shows a Blue plum. I also collect apples, so the large canister ties into my home decor.
Happy Blue Monday!
