Decorating with a rooster theme can be an adorable way to incorporate the charm of hens and eggs into any country kitchen.
Rooster Color Palettes
Rooster colors range from the red-black-and beige to deep shades of rust, forest green and deep brown. To choose your best rooster colors, look at the color of your cabinets. If they're white, then the black and red colors will compliment them very nicely. If you have wood-toned cabinetry, then stick with the beige, rust and forest green colors.
If you happen to have roosters, you can bring their feathers into the paint shop and have the paint custom blended to match the rooster's colors. Photos of your rooster can be framed and hung in your kitchen. You can also scan and digitally alter your rooster pictures to create artsy, enlarged, or comedic images of roosters to compliment your decor.
Rooster Cookie Jars
Rooster cookie jars, canisters and kitchen towels are easy to find. Since roosters have been popular for several years, you may find it easy to pick up second hand rooster decor for a much lower price than brand new rooster items. Buy pieces little by little, and gradually build up your collection, picking up new pieces a few times a month instead of on one spending spree.
Roosters have been emblazoned on kitchen towels, washcloths, potholders, cloth napkins and tablecloths. You can also get rooster window valances and curtains. You can make your own rooster linens by printing pictures of roosters on inkjet fabric transfer paper, then following the manufacturer's instructions to iron the pictures onto your fabric. You can make a cute pattern by lining up feathers of different colors, scanning them into your computer and then printing them out to transfer.
Choosing a rooster decorating theme for your kitchen is fun and rooster items are easy to find. Before you know it, friends and family will be sending you roosters and bringing you roosters every time they see one. Have fun.
