Colorful Cottage Kitchen: Take the Tour

When I was running with my daughter last weekend, I confessed we were finally getting a new refrigerator. One week passed and instead of a new fridge, we were purchasing a new range because ours died suddenly. The fridge arrives in a couple of weeks though. Since I have kitchen issues on the brain, I thought I’d share this colorful cottage kitchen full of charm and ideas to spruce up your own kitchen.

The designer is Alison Kandler, one of my newfound Houzz favorites. Custom cabinetry provides a classic backdrop for this cottage kitchen with fun pops of color.

I’m lovin’ this double range with its red knobs and stainless steel finish. We purchased a white single range for our kitchen and it was delivered the next day from Lowe’s. I’ll share more about it once our refrigerator arrives.

Bright green chairs at the large island stand out in this almost all-white kitchen. The yellow pendant lighting adds a whimsical touch.

A beautiful walk-in pantry with a wallpapered ceiling provides ample storage for dry goods and other sundries.

Next to the pantry, this colorful kitchen sports additional storage behind a chalkboard door and magnetized orange door. Even the little retro apron hanging on a hook adds a bit of fun color.

An over-sized kitchen island provides plenty of work space during meal prep. Note the fun yellow knobs on the cabinetry of this colorful cottage kitchen.

A beautiful farmhouse sink is tucked underneath a cottage window with a simple, patterned Roman shade. Window treatments are a great way to add a bit of color and fun to any room.

The charming breakfast nook in this colorful cottage kitchen continues the softly patterned fabric seen above the farmhouse sink. The built-in banquette provides a spot to add fun pillows.

    Oh! The storage! Such a charming kitchen. We had to buy a new fridge a few years ago and it was agonizing ????so many choices! The last time I bought one, you just picked out what you wanted and there was no researching available, or reviews, to muddle your mind. I loved the sink pendant in the kitchen. And the matching one over the table. Of course, that yellow one was perfect.

  7. Absolutely everytthing! Fantastic. If I had to choose one thing id say the pendant. Lights over the island….any chance I can find out where you got them!?

  8. I love Alison’s designs. Love all the pops of color. Great kitchen!
