Rustic Bread Board is Très Clever

If you follow Angelina of Petite Haus, then you know she chronicled the construction of their lovely French farmhouse in Cali. I have noticed her clever trick to decorate seasonally on the kitchen islands.

Lovely French country and French farmhouse style converge in a French kitchen by Petite Haus with island and farm sink. Island is  painted Benjamin Moore Silver Song.
Petite Haus – Island Cabinet Color: BENJAMIN MOORE Silver Song. A rustic wooden bread board on the island is a staging tray for seasonal decor…lovely indeed. Celebrate the season and holidays by changing the decor atop the “tray.”

What I particularly love about the ‘every tray is a stage’ idea is how the staging board is also a functional item in the kitchen to be brought into service as needed.

Gorgeous French country kitchen with huge kitchen island painted Benjamin Moore Silver Song, farm sink, and marble countertops. Design by Petite Haus.
Island Cabinet Color: BENJAMIN MOORE Silver Song...certainly a gorgeous hue indeed

It’s sooooo French to have only useful items for decor!

Whether it’s a basket or a tray matters not to me–only that decorating maven, Leslie of Gwen Moss knows her way around adding gorgeous texture to a room. Boxwood spheres in a round woven tray on a weathered table? WINNING. (And shiplap-lovely walls? Leslie ripped those planks herself!)
