This medium-sized star is a fun accent in this mostly white kitchen. Black symbolized protection, also used to blend or bind elements together.
Tip: You can use stencils or wall decals to jazz up your cabinets as well. In my last house, my cabinets were crudola, so I stenciled words like GLASSES, PLATES, SNACKS on the corresponding cabinets in a cool font. Inevitably, people would come over and say "why the heck did you write on your cabinets you dope?!" Then, two minutes later, they'd say, "Hey Becky, where do you keep the plates?" and I'd just stare at them, raise my eyebrows in a way that said "whose the dope now?" and laugh.
