Roosting upon the counter top or appearing to peck at salt and pepper shakers, rooster accents bring a sprightly, agrarian flavor to the kitchen. The natural versatility of these dignified creatures means never being locked into one theme; use rooster decor to cultivate a country galley now and a vintage breakfast nook later.
The red hues intrinsic to rooster decor are also known to stimulate appetite, as in the Avignon Rooster Kitchen Canister Set. A burgundy background flecked with scrolls offsets the cream-and-black roosters and will get your guests hungry. Rooster finials guard the canister lids, which are made airtight to preserve freshness.
In the home, roosters are symbolic of a prosperous harvest and an abundance of food. Roosters and chickens in kitchen decor can often be found perched atop a mound of fresh crops or eggs. The Rooster Medley Paper Towel Holder makes playful use of this trope by creating an “overflow” effect; the fruits and vegetables proliferate from the base to the finial, appearing to fill even the inside of the paper towel roll. In anticipation of a triumphant crow, the rooster cranes his strong neck backward. The porous texture of his waddle and comb give this paper towel holder a startling edge of realism.
Rustic charm is another inseparable element of rooster iconography. With provincial villas settled in the background, four roosters strut their way across the inky scrolls and whirling italics of the Italia Rooster Wall Art Set. Their plumage is rendered in artful brushstrokes, while green and brown borders highlight the natural pigments of their feathers. Each is an individual, with a regal arrangement of tail feathers and a sleek, proud chest. The pride of these lovely animals is yours when you create your own rooster kitchen!
