Decorating Your Vintage Style Kitchen With Collectible Aqua, Jade, Yellow, Lime Pottery Vases And Planters

Using Vintage Colorful Pottery In Today's Kitchen

Pottery vases and planters from the colorful era (1930s-1950s) are charming additions to today's sleek stainless steel kitchens.

Choosing Complimentary Colors

I have paired aqua, yellow, lime and jade colored vintage pottery together to form a very delightful and fresh look in my neutral toned kitchen.

Vintage Aqua Teapots, Pitchers, Planters, Vases

Glazed planters, vases, teapots, pitchers are displayed in many different areas of my kitchen. And I am still adding more pieces to the collection as I find them when I am out shopping at flea markets, shops and second hand stores.

Vary The Shapes And Sizes of Vintage Pottery

It is important to vary the shapes and sizes but also to keep some organization by repeating complimentary colors. I have found that aqua, yellow, lime green and Jade go together beautifully. The yellow color seems to perk up the collection offering just a little change and excitement.

Sometimes, I will add yellow flowers to a Jade vase for the same element of freshness.
