When it comes to kitchen decor, keeping a neutral color scheme will help this area feel more open and cohesive.
The trick is to make all your decor items multi-functional. This actually leads to my next tip which is a smart way to think when it comes to decorating those counters.

A wooden cutting board can add texture, color and create a stunning display when stacked together next to a kitchen backsplash.
Clear glass canisters are one of my favorite kitchen functional items. They are super useful by keeping kitchen staples like flour and sugar within easy reach.
