The New Year serves as an annual ‘refresh’ button; a marker in time that reminds us that we are all capable of starting a new project, improving ourselves, or simply making changes for the better. There’s no easier way to usher in a year of new beginnings than focusing on the place you call home. By making small visual updates to your surroundings, you will literally begin to see things in a different way.

For the next two weeks, we’ll be offering up some exciting suggestions on how to give an instant update to all the rooms in your home.

Today we are focusing on the epicenter of most homes; the kitchen. If your families are anything like ours, this is the room in which the day is started and finished; where you hear about your child’s day at school while making dinner or a success at work over morning coffee. A vintage poster is the perfect way in which to add visual importance to your daily routine.

A strong and bold work of art (no matter small or large) forces us to slow down, linger a little longer at the table, and transforms a kitchen from a utilitarian room into the epicenter of the home.

Here are some of our favorite suggestions for a quick update for this often overlooked wall space:


LuLu Biscuit by Bouisset, circa 1938. Perfect for a breakfast nook with a large wall, this large size poster is informal and fun! Click on the image to learn more.


Primo in Blue by Bellenger, circa 1935. This vivacious poster was created for a candy company. We love it for its size as well; it’s 12″ x 16″ so it’s the perfect fit for any apartment kitchen! Click on it to purchase.


La France Touristique Et Gastronomique by Petit, 1948. This charming poster features a map of France, pointing out where certain delicacies are produced.
