Decorating styles come and go and we’re currently seeing an increasing trend in people craving colorful kitchens after the mass popularity of white kitchens is fading. Here are 13 beautiful examples of charming kitchens with pretty colors!
Adding color to a mostly white kitchen is easy to do. Here, Alison Kandler, one of my favorite interior designers, fills open kitchen shelves with brightly colored dishware.
Here’s another take on brightly colored dishes taking up residence on open shelves. Another way to create colorful kitchens is by using patterned window treatments.
Rather than paint kitchen cabinets a fun color, how about adding a blue hue to the ceiling? The color is a softer shade of the bright aqua shown in the adjacent room.
If you’re brave enough to embrace a more permanent use of color in your cooking space, consider a playful back splash.
White cabinetry allows the perfect opportunity to add colored appliances. Note the sweet red drawer pulls – just another way to create colorful kitchens.
A free standing hutch in the shade of mint ice cream complements the playful dishes on the open shelves. Rose patterned upholstery on a nearby chair plays up the pink!
Pretty apple green paint isn’t overwhelming when used on just the upper walls of this eclectic kitchen. If you get tired of the color, simply re-paint!
Cheery pops of red perk up a neutral farmhouse kitchen and looks great with the gray hutch.
More apple green! I love when a kitchen island is painted a fun shade of color.
Periwinkle looks equally charming on a kitchen island. Creating colorful kitchens becomes easier when you can simply paint your island a fun hue!
What do you notice first about this colorful kitchen? Is it the orange island, the brightly colored bowls, the patterned rug, or the unique light fixtures with color blocks of turquoise?
And finally, a homeowner who embraces shades of purple in her colorful kitchen! I love this one – the color choice is so unique.
