Soft hues can be especially pretty for the holidays, and this pastel Christmas kitchen is proof positive of that. When I was a kid, we always had a live, flocked tree that towered above me to the top of our living room’s vaulted ceiling. My mother trimmed the tree with pink and aqua beaded ornaments that were highly popular back in the 1960s (and now I’m giving my age away!). I’ve always had a fondness for a pastel holiday palette because of it. So I was delighted to find this festive kitchen that reminds me of my youth.
This Scandinavian style’s kitchen has a different pastel color scheme than my mother’s Christmas. Pale green, white, and gold ornaments complement the green cabinetry of the small kitchen.
Paper packages are tied up with string for a simple Nordic effect. A light-stained wooden bowl cradles ornaments not used on the tabletop tree. I have similar ornaments that I placed in a bowl as a Christmas decoration during my Christmas home tour of 2018.
An even smaller Christmas tree wrapped in burlap wears the same pastel ornaments.
Open shelves take on the holiday spirit with a pretty wreath and wooden Christmas trees. You’ll notice a few pine cones on both the tree and the wreath. Pine cones are an inexpensive decorating staple for the holidays. You can always find some on the ground in a variety of sizes.
A plate of meringue sandwich cookies on the kitchen island are just waiting to be enjoyed. Have you ever made meringue cookies? If not, try one of these meringue cookie recipes.
Not everyone decorates their kitchen for Christmas, but this charmer is all decked out for the holidays.
