Digging The Pig Kitchen Decor

I’m really digging the pig kitchen decor of late.  As time is on my side in today’s world of thinking twice about venturing out if it’s not necessarily a necessity, it leaves me unhurried time to explore new things out there in internet land.

Last week I shared with the Places In The Home Facebook page followers a new page I’ve started to follow, Cooking with Brenda Gantt.

Miss Brenda cooks up Southern favorites with her own unique flavor of the South.

Homemade buttermilk biscuits.

Chicken and dumplings.

Boston butts.

Marinated vegetable salad.

Hot water cornbread.

Orange pineapple ice cream.

Candied sweet potatoes.

To quote Brenda, “It’s gonna be good y’all!”

And it was!

Brenda shops the local farmers market, Wingard’s Produce, and a Southern staple of grocery store traditions, Piggly Wiggly aka The Pig for fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.

Inspiration is everywhere, and this particular pig post is coming to you inspired and ready to root.

If you follow me, you’re already aware of my affinity for using decorative items for something different other than the intended use of said object.


Winged Pig Bird Feeder

This Winged Pig Bird Feeder is my idea of a breakfast table or kitchen island centerpiece focal point fruit bowl.



This Cape Craftsmen Pig Planter will easily fill the bill as a planter, but it’s also decoratively capable of becoming a stylish desk accessory for the kitchen home.

Pig kitchen decor comes in variety of styles ranging from I ♥ country French to vintage whimsy to farmhouse chic.

Avoiding decor items that tend to be too trendy by opting for those that have staying power such as classic form, good bones, and clean lines promotes a stylish result and keeps the what in the world was I thinking when I bought this regret at bay.


Copper Cookware and Decorative Accents

Copper cookware and decorative accents continue to be a favored choice of kitchen accessory.

In the daily stove to table taste of home ritual most of us engage in copper far better serves the sizzle, sauté, sauce, and simmer in superior performance and quality taste.

Copper Cookware and Decorative Accents

Style at Home

Temperature uniformity is essential in the cooking process. Too much heat scorches and burns while too little heat deters the notes of taste and flavor. Copper is an excellent heat conductor- the maestro of materials.


Copper cookware distributes a precise and even heat which is the essential element for proper temperature control.

Gorgeous is as gorgeous works, and copper cookware plates a gorgeous taste.

It’s Super Copper Tastic Excellent à la Decorocious!


Cooking and decorating share similar attributes.




Visual appeal.

It is said that we eat with your eyes.

Decorative accents and embellishments should enhance the design rather than overpower it.

Less proves to be so much more in many design and decorating instances, visually speaking.

Take this white French kitchen hood accented with copper trim as an example.

The copper trim really pops against the white, and draws the eye to the contrast between the exposed brick backsplash/back wall and rustic wood truss with focal point precision.

Buying vintage copper cookware pieces for decorating purposes differs from buying copper cookware pieces to actually prepare food in.

Vintage copper cookware pieces tend to be made of unlined copper.


Antique French Rare Copper Colander

Unlined copper is categorized as a reactive metal, and may interact with foods.

Safety in cooking is of the utmost importance. Consider opting for copper pots and pans lined in tin or stainless steel which creates a nonreactive lining.

When cleaning copper cookware and decorative accents, avoid using an abrasive cleaner to eliminate the risk of scratching the copper.


Allow your copper cookware to cool down after use.  Sudden temperature changes from stove burner to dishwater can promote warping.

Be it copper, copper over tin, or copper over stainless steel- the point is the look, performance, and decorative effect.

Copper cookware and decorative accents remain an elegant element and traditional choice of material to complement taste, space, and of course to compliment the chef.
