One of the things I love about going to the movies on the weekends and watching certain TV shows is to see the set decorating. I have received a lot of decorating inspiration from watching many movies and shows over the years.
Most recently I got major inspiration for my kitchen. If you recall it is pretty much brown top to bottom.
I dearly would like to gut it, but those plans will have to wait since we spent our money for that on a boat. Living on a lake, the boat ranked higher and since I have tackled painting two kitchens, I knew I could transform what we have into something that makes me smile with a little DIY and paint. I could not build a boat.
Even if I paint the kitchen cabinets, I am still left with a brown Formica countertop and backsplash. I don’t want to spend a lot of money to replace either until we redo the entire kitchen. I have been saving ideas on Pinterest, but recently found the inspiration I needed to get me excited about updating my kitchen on my TV screen.
It was while watching the show Madame Secretary. I am a fan of Tea Leoni and watch it every Sunday night.
The set for the main house is fabulous, but it is the kitchen in their weekend home that piqued my interest.
I wish I had the skills to cut and paste photos right from the wall mounted TV so I could get a better photo of it. There were many good shots. I did a Google search and only found this photo which isn’t the best, but does show the kitchen.
I liked what I saw. A farmhouse style kitchen with white cabinets and brown countertops! This is a combo I never considered, but after seeing the show, I have now found a way to make the brown countertops work, at least until we can redo the kitchen all the way.
So now I am searching for images of kitchens with white cabinets and brown counters. I have only found a few, but enough to know I will be moving forward with the idea.
I love the look of the pure white cabinets with the dark brown/black counter in this pantry. Very doable.
This has more of a wood look counter with a bead board backsplash.
Have you ever gotten decorating inspiration from movie sets or your favorite TV show houses? The last time I got major inspiration like I have now was after seeing the movie, Something’s Gotta Give. The weekend after I saw that, I painted the entire first floor of my house white. :-)
Happy Weekend…I hope it is an inspiring one.
