Pennsylvania Dutch Kitchen

My objective with this scene was to create a cozy lived in space. I filled the room with natural wood to give it warmth, then placed  utensils, plates, bowls, jars around the room, breaking straight lines, making the room appear as if the residents were just about to sit down for dinner.

 

to give it a bit of Pennsylvania Dutch character, I placed what are know as "Hex Symbols" on the plates displayed on the hearth. These symbols are often placed on barns in the area, for decoration and good luck.
