Fine Art in the Kitchen

September 12, 2016

Lately, I’ve been seeing quite a few spaces with fine art hung in the kitchen. Generally, kitchen designs shy away from thing vulnerable to humidity such as hardwood floors and artwork – but these designs are too beautiful to follow the rules. 

I also love mirrors in kitchens, but that’s another post for another day. For now, here are some of my favorite spaces that feature fine art in unexpected places!

I love the art placed on the open shelves creating a layered look. 

An informal trio of similar pieces of artwork makes for a beautiful kitchen gallery.

The gallery lighting above the art is so dramatic and perfect for the space.

Adding fine art to the bathroom is a total faux pas, but if you can score a great piece from the thrift store – it makes such a great statement!

Simply setting a piece of small artwork on the counter is less of a commitment, but still adds the effect of fine art in the space. 


Are you inspired to place art in your kitchen now?

  1. I have yet to notice the trend of fine art in kitchens but I fully understand the appeal. It makes the kitchen look elegant, classy, and regal. I’m also a fan of mirrors in kitchens, I used to have a mirror as the backdrop to my stove, it was awesome and I got a great arm workout since I had to clean it after every meal. lol

    • Haha! I never thought about the cleaning – isn’t that how it always goes? I think a mirror behind the stove is such a beautiful idea!!
