The Top of the Fridge

Top o' the Fridge Scapes

I styled the top of my fridge yesterday. I did this, then I did this later, which looks like this. It isn’t quite right yet, but it’s a start. This is riveting stuff here, I know! I started thinking about it though — what does one put above a freestanding fridge, assuming you do want something up there? Here are some of the options I’ve seen.

Dozens of apples in a charmingly rustic wire basket, with eggs. (Really, stylists? Really?)
Red Smeg Fridge

A lone gumball machine. (Again, really?)
Mint Green / Pale Blue Fridge

Vintage Cathrineholm bakeware. (This one makes more sense.)
Pale Aqua Fridge

A vintage Kaj Franck bowl. (This one seems appropriate, too.)
Amy Butler's Kitchen with Buttercup Yellow Fridge

A mismatched collection of feminine baskets. (Cute.)

And my favorite, a taxidermied peacock. (Of course!)

Basically, we can all put whatever we want up there. Free license!

I still need to play around with my arrangement a bit. I like the clock above the fridge (though I’m still waiting on this one, and may swap it out), and I suppose I’ll keep a plant up there instead of getting hanging planters. I’ll probably shy away from the peafowl, but that’s just personal preference.

    I actually own a taxidermy peacock! (found him at a yard sale) Never thought about putting him on the fridge, may have to try that!

    I had stuff on top of my fridge for years. Now I love the look of a “naked” fridge. At the holidays I put stuff up there but the rest of the year… nothing. I makes my kitchen seem cleaner.

    Such an interesting post. I never really gave much thought about what was on top of the fridge before. But I had to laugh about the gumball machine; I have one on top of my fridge! I also have some old candy jars (the clear glass ones with the metal lids) and a few old tins to keep it company. I sort of have an old timey candy store vibe going on and didn’t even realize it! P.S. That peacock is fantastic!
