Each kitchen design in Provence style is special. However, equal attention is paid to the design of the walls. For Provence in the design of the kitchen wallpaper is less relevant than for the bedroom in this style. The kitchen is a room for active visits, get-togethers, recreation.

Pans, pots and bowls, vases and other containers, plates are not made to be hidden in cabinets in the kitchen in the style of Provence. They are the focal objects of the room's decor, so large and bulky items are fixed on the walls with metal hooks, and small household utensils — sugar bowls, creampie dishes, pepper shakers, spice mortars, jars of fragrant and spicy herbs — are displayed on the shelves. The latter are copper, forging, brass. For maximum accuracy, you can use decorative copper containers, clay pots of all shapes and sizes, wooden vases of ornate colors, shapes and ornaments with your own hands.

These are napkins and tablecloths, blankets and bedspreads on chairs, pot holders, towels, specially designed draperies in order to maximize the good homely atmosphere.

In this case, as in many others, it is textiles that will play the unifying role that will bring together the finishing materials of the walls and ceiling, other surfaces, pieces of furniture and lighting, freedom and spaciousness, romance and goodness.
