small modern eat in kitchen with plaid walls, louis ghost chairs, round wooden table, stools and a chalkboard

Here's a cute idea. A small kitchen with plaid walls! Hmmmm...would have never thought of it but it works here. A cute small eat in kitchen in a Swedish apartment with a white subway tile backsplash, modern stainless hood, white cabinets and plaid wallpaper on all of the other walls. The plaid works here. Not too overwhelming. Just right. Adds a bit of whimsy and visual interest to what could end up being just a regular small space.

Amazing too that they were able to fit a little round table with some clear Louis Ghost chairs into the design mix.  I like.

Smart design I think. I've added a few wallpaper patterns below that could also look good in this type of space.

Do you like this idea of plaid on the walls in a kitchen?  Is a SMART DESIGN or not so smart all?  Is this something you would consider for your home?  Why or why not?  Please weigh in below.  I LOVE reading your comments.

Happy Tuesday!


P.S. Just got an update today about a project we've been trying to move along with a major brand.  Will keep fingers crossed that it works out and that I can tell you about it soon.

P.P.S.  Also, just heard from another big company who might want to use COCOCOZY throws for their corporate Christmas gifts.  Fingers crossed that it works out!  Will of course blab the details should it come to fruition.

P.P.P.S.  Still no resolution on my floor issue (you know the wood floors that are damaged due to a pipe exploding)...can't seem to get the floor guy to come out and give me an estimate.  Arrrggghhhhhh....!

P.P.P.P.S. Thanks to all of you for your pictures of your pumpkins and for the great ideas you emailed me.  My neighbor has tricked out her house for Halloween already...I'm going to have to try to keep up by carving my one and only pumpkin!

P.P.P.P.P.S. Had a nice dinner last night with JLF.  So good to catch up after so long.

  1. Love plaid rugs. Think this wallpaper is a bit too 70's for this 70's child.

  2. I like plaid but never would have thought of it for a kithchen, yet it really works!

  3. I don’t like plaid wallpapers that much but now that I saw your kitchen design I am thinking of doing it too. Kitchen renovations in Perth wa is popular because they are good at making a dull room look cool. I’ll ask my cousin if he can do this to my wall but using paint and not a wallpaper.

  4. Do you have the design name/company name for this wallpaper please - have been looking for one exactly like this for a long time. Thank you.

  5. The design looks perfect with those kitchen cabinets. I just don’t like the color because it looks dull.
