We're Out In The Country...


But we are moving soon...

The renovations are coming to an end, and the painting has started...

All my color choices have come easy. That is, all but one.

The Kitchen.

It should be bold and bright, shouldn't it?!

What do you think? What color is your kitchen?

Yellow! I love the happy yellow walls in my kitchen. If you are like me you spend a huge chunk of your day preparing food, serving food and cleaning up after food. I figure if I'm in a room that much, it should make me happy!!

yellow. love yellow. my window treatments and other accents are red and blue. kinda french country meets southern hospitality. ;-) i love it. just wish i had different cabinets. we kept the builder-grade...keep thinking about painting them or something to jazz them up.

Mine is a very old Kitchen - in much need of a makeover - but the walls I painted green- like the color of honey-dew melon :)

Mine are a shade of orange:

They seem a little darker in real life than in the picture.

mine used to be an earthy red, but last fall we switched it to a bright apple green and i LOVE it! wish i would have gone brighter years ago! modern and fresh but still home-y. :)

My kitchen has 5 colors in it. 1 wall of light purple (extended from the dining room), 2 walls of light mint green (under the cupboards), and 2 walls of medium mint green (above the cupboards).

I actually posted pics of the interior of my house, just today. Hope you'll visit to see all of the fun colors that we like.

Yes ... bright and cheery is good for the kitchen.

Mine is varying shades of orange horizontal sections making it look like a sunset. You've seen it, right? Please tell me you have! I love it!

Kate @ Bliss and That said...

Ours is tan, blah. :) But, we can't change it and have fun printed curtains, so I'm okay with it... The old house was a lighter yellow. I'm not sure what I'd pick out of anything...

How fun! Can't wait until you're in your new home!! :)

you Americans are so colourful... we even spell colour differently here ;)

mine is WHITE. White walls, white cupboards, white marble {that is Calacutta Gold.... so it has gorgeous water marks throughout} and stainless steel appliances. I have wooden rafters on a raked ceiling so there is wood in their too... plus my very dark wooden floorboards.

I DO however make a feature with a giant round fish bowl on the sink with goldfish galore in it & really whacky coloured glass objects from Murano, near Venice in Italy.

I should have just done some photos :):)

It's very serene and we NEED serene. Well I do, that and easy to clean.

Phil chose a grass green for out kitchen. We love it!

And we are planning to paint our cabinets black...someday ;)

Jessica said...

Chocolate brown and Tiffany Blue. The walls are brown and I painted to accent strpies of Tiffany blue on the back wall. The curtains are tiffany blue and when the sun hits them...the room has a really great color

Sarah said...

I say yellow or green. something bright and cheerful.

In the past I had a Mint green kitchen and right now our kitchen is 3 shades of beige (blah) but we are preparing to rip that kitchen out and put in a new one and that will be... white with mocha granite. I have learnt that I like neutral colours and white cupboards and I get my colour fix with vases or pictures (I also have a very short attention span that gets sick of a strong coloured feature wall in about 3 months... this doesn't make for a happy marriage if the Husband has to keep painting over feature walls!).
