How to create a dragonfly themed kitchen

If you are inspired by dragonflies, think about creating your kitchen decor around that theme. This page brings you suggestions on how to create a dragonfly kitchen using decor and appliances.

Subtle touches work very well. Think about matching some colors and using several well placed dragonfly accents to achieve the best results. Once you have the basics fixed there is no shortage of kitchen and dining accessories available to buy online. I've picked out some of my favorites from dinnerware to curtains to kitchen tiles.

Kitchen decoration

pick your color scheme

Planning a dragonfly inspired kitchen should start with a color scheme. Use these tiles to decide on the overall look. As you can see there are plenty of options to choose from. Notice how well dragonfly colors stand out from a plain background. Take one of the paler, more pastel shades to paint the walls and use a few of these tiles scattered randomly among plain-colored, cream or white tiles on a splash-back for your sink. These stand out better as accents when used sparingly.

Matching kitchen accessories

match your colors to dragonfly colors

Pick out one of the prominent colors of your tiles to match your kitchen accessories, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and so on. More than one color will defeat it's purpose and instead of looking stylish will look mismatched. I've picked out a few to let you see what I mean and all of these are available in different colors.
