Colorful Kitchens / July 4, 2018 / Addison Smith.
Another way to transition into blue-kitchen territory is to pick the lightest shade of ice blue you can find. Your kitchen will feel modern and fresh, but other materials and colors such as wood and white countertops can take center stage.
"There are no bad colors, just bad color combinations," said one of my interior design mentors many years ago. At first I disagreed with him, since there’s a certain shade of brown-mustard yellow that I definitely wouldn’t want slathered all over my walls. But after I chewed on his statement for a bit, I realized that I had seen that color used in ways that were quite beautiful. It’s definitely possible to make any single color work in your home — it’s all in how other colors and materials are incorporated with it. But how do you develop a cohesive color palette?
Eggplant. A basket of vegetables is a great source of inspiration for kitchen color palettes. This yummy eggplant is made even more beautiful by the warm metallic finishes on the hardware and faucets. And if you’re not ready to paint all of your cabinets, try using your saturated-color choice as a large accent like they did here, where using it on just one wall of lower cabinets was the right dose.
Chevron backsplash. A simple chevron pattern looks especially fresh and fun in vibrant turquoise and white. The yellow pots on the stove here really pop against the blue and white tile — and the palette would work equally well the opposite way, with turquoise pots against yellow and white tile.
