Tuscan Kitchen Decorating

I took everything down from above my kitchen cabinets and decided to redecorate with a Tuscan look. By that I mean, what you might find in Tuscany, Italy.
This is how far I am with the decorating...
Looking at these photos makes me realize, I should probably paint that vent the color of my walls so it doesn't stand out as much (photos always tell so much).
I keep my kitchen counters pretty bare as I like to have the space clean and ready to cook and bake with. That means the space above my cabinets is my main area in the kitchen to decorate with.

Do you have space above your kitchen cabinets? If so what do you do with it? How often, if ever, do you change it?

Hi Amy: That's nice that you are giving above the cabinets a Tuscany look!

I have a new blue, yellow, and white color scheme in the kitchen. Right now, above my little white kitchen cabniets I have four ceramic pieces...two are white and blue and two are yellow and blue. I like the look!

Take care and have a great Saturday. Susan

Amy, I have space above my cabinets too. I haven't been able to decide if I like it or not, you know the dusting, but I do like to decorate and it gives us decorators more space to fill,right. I like to create little vignettes in different spots along the cabinets for interest, that is about it. Yours look great.

I love it! I love all the red jars. I only have one cabinet to put things above in my galley, but I store some of my bowls and cookbooks up there...for looks, and for function. :O)

I just painted my kitchen and had to take down the things above the cabinets. Can I just say, ewwwww! I hadn't crawled up there in about 5 years.

I'm in the mood to strip everything down from above my cabinet, just like you did. I don't know what I'll put back up. Probably not much. I'm craving a cleaner look.
