Decorating With Vintage Kitchenware

Decorating With Vintage Kitchenware

One wall of the restaurant at Villandry is covered in vintage kitchenware, hung neatly on long rails. It adds a homey feel to the sleekness of the restaurant. But this could work just as well in a kitchen or dining room, a somewhat obvious but undeniably charming way to use a motley selection of vintage tableware or decorative copper pots without taking up precious storage space...

Otherwise, to keep your vintage kitchen finds from turning into clutter, why not repurpose them like Marianne, a Parisian with a taste for nostalgic kitchen items from the brocante. Instead of just placing it on a shelf, she used this old French cafetière to hold cooking utensils. For the full house tour, go here.

David Lebovitz uses a vintage Champagne bucket that came with his rented apartment for the same purpose in his Paris kitchen. For the full kitchen tour, go here.

What other ways have you found to keep vintage kitchen finds from turning into space-stealing clutter?
