Canister Dilema

I need your help! I'm trying to find new canisters for my kitchen. I don't have any pictures of the kitchen (I'll post some tomorrow) but I can tell you the shelves are adorned with retro kitchen appliances and dishes in oranges, reds, and mustard yellow. We have off-white walls with one chocolate brown accent wall.

I spent HOURS searching Etsy last night for the perfect vintage canisters to replace the too-modern glass and stainless canisters we already have. I managed to narrow it down to the two sets below. They're both very different in style but would both go well in our kitchen.

These avocado green canisters may not be anything special, but I love the color. I've been trying to bring more avocado into the kitchen to break up some of the reds and oranges. I like the faux wood tops and lettering on the fronts. For some reason, I just really like these!

But I also LOVE these! They color is awesome and the flecks of missing paint add a little vintage charm. The wood tops are awesome and fit in with the wood bowls I just bought last month. On the other hand, I feel like I've already used orange and red a lot in the kitchen, so adding orange canisters would be overload. But they're SO cute!

Thoughts, opinions? What do YOU think?


  1. Hmmm...I'm not usually a huge fan of avocado, but I think the avocado set would be a nice pop to break up the reds & oranges :)
