Home Inspiration: Kitchen food wall

Friday, May 27, 2011

My friend Sofia who works as a chef always tells us that if you surround yourself with healthy, fresh foods or photos of them, you will become more conscious about your food choices as you will crave more what's on the photo instead of giving into your old habits. I see her point and I got totally excited when I saw this photo wall by Heidi Swanson. It's a great mixture of awesome food and magical places. Darlings, wouldn't it be fun to have something like that in your kitchen? Maybe even framed? What are your thoughts? xo

it is such a good idea! i love photos of food in the kitchen - if only we had more wall space i would have tons of them!

Btw: what do you think about her theory? Do you agree or disagree?

Alely said...

Oh this is very true! What also helps is to shop in small shops instead og huge supermarkets. Because they are so 'convenient' you are more likely to just toss stuff in your trolley than when you go somewhere different for fruits and veg, meat, bread etc.
Have a great weekend all!

Brilliant theory Sofia - I'll have to consider how to do this on our fridge, or on the inside of our pantry door.

xx to you too Diana.

Diana Mieczan said...

Have a fantastic time in Boston, Smita! And Felicity,I love the fridge and pantry door idea!

What a neat idea! I never thought of this before, but it makes sense. It's like walking through a garden- you can't not crave all the healthy, delicious fruits and vegetables! I should probably try this out!

Courtney Erin said...

This is a great idea - sort of like a food inspiration board.

Not only is that a great idea for more conscious eating, but the photos are gorgeous, too!

Marissa said...

I love this idea

jillian :: cornflake dreams. said...

what a great idea! we have a pinboard in the kitchen where we could do this... must find some healthy foods tho or else im sure ill put up mac n cheese and that'll be trouble. xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

Brenna said...

Hm, I suppose. But I like to have all my fruits and veggies proudly on display in real life!

Eliza Jane said...

What a great idea! I would love to have space in my kitchen for something like that.

Signe said...

This is such a great ide - simple, chic and decorative :)

just sayin' said...

I agree completely!Awesome idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Diana Mieczan said...

Pinboard would work really well for this, Jillian! And mac n cheese would be trouble for sure...hahah

Marjorie Rose said...

With my tiny kitchen, this is an awesome idea! It's an ever-changing food wall that's easy to create..

I'd probably put lots of pics of fruits and veggies to hype me up.. oh and coffee mugs and lattes..

Elisa said...

I agree with the theory. I would try to have photos of lots of veggies and fruits. when I glance through recipe books and I see beautiful cakes or cookies I feel inspired to eat, so that's why I said I would have to have 'healthy' photos.heehe

Vanisha said...

I'm totally going to try this! It really does make sense. Thanks for sharing Diana and have a great weekend :)

Have a great holiday weekend! I hope it's filled with all good things!
