Cooking supplies and implements are often featured prominently, whether in containers on countertops or hanging from antique racks. A common theme is relaxed elegance and lived-in luxury—Italian kitchens feel like spaces you'd be happy to spend long stretches of time in, as opposed to rushing in and out on the way to your next appointment.
Flooring made from substantial, dark wood planks also creates contrast with the preferred color schemes in Victorian kitchens, which may feature accents in light blues, yellows and rose pinks, building on the romantic feel. Speaking of romance, another way to add to the whimsical, rapturous feel of a Victorian kitchen is through artwork.
Finally, ancillary design touches like artwork or antique farm equipment may be used to add visual interest to a farmhouse kitchen design, artfully hung from walls or integrated into the design next to more contemporary cooking implements.
