9. Just opt for an island. If all that black is scaring you, try a dark blue like this (Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball) just on the island instead, and soften things further with a few traditional touches.Tongue-and-groove paneling, nautical brass pendants and vintage-look industrial seating, all seen here, are just some ideas for adding a little homey, eclectic character. Also, look at old enamel signage and vintage dishware.
The Maid Brigade has other natural solutions for cleaning copper as well:Lemon juice and baking soda: Combine a few tablespoons of lemon juice with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and rub the mixture on the copper until the grime begins to come off. Then polish with a clean cloth.Vinegar and salt: Pour vinegar and salt over the copper. Rub in and keep rubbing until the tarnish comes off. Rinse and polish with a clean, dry cloth.To enhance the natural polish of copper, Stegner suggests wiping it with a dab of vegetable oil.See how to clean: Hardwood Floors | Marble Countertops and Tile | Glass Showers | Refrigerators | Carpet | Stainless Steel | Windows | Garden Tools | Dishwashers | Silver | Fireplaces | Window ScreensMoreSee more kitchen ideas and designsBrowse cookware on Houzz
