Above the wall cabinets there is a space up to the ceiling of a couple of feet. I always felt it was a barren space that made the cupboards seem too low and the room out of proportion so I went on line to google images of what others had done and was duly inspired to group some objects with a bit of height to them in order to create a better feel and visual impact. I just did the best I could with the prims I have about the house... as someone said, 'just shop the house'! and that's what I did. It took some time and lots of trial and error.
One of my worries was that the kitchen might then feel cluttered and 'coming in' on itself so I was careful only to group in threes.
Another worry was that it would end up looking as if I had run out of storage space in the cupbaords and was resorting to stacking things up there out of the way. So I decided to use objects that were not necessarily related to kitchen use ie.antique kitchen scales would be great but then I thought up there they would be lost and ineffective.
So here's what I came up with~
I used these jars and a black checker board behind to help them stand out more and just a little vine of pip berry to soften the edge and add texture
Just added the dried hydrangea to soften this basket and break up the color block.
So there you have it and just one last tip - put sheets of old newspaper on top of the cupboards to catch the dust etc and then change them as need be! Saves a lot of time scrubbing those grimy cupboards come spring!
