Since I had some time to kill in the afternoons, I went to different stores and checked out paint colors. I pretty much knew what I want, but just need to see what else is out there. Maybe even get inspired.
I love yellow, always have. I remember taking an interior design class in college, some 30 years ago, and even back then, the kitchen I designed was yellow.
Our house now has mostly beiges, browns, and khaki greens. It looks really nice, but since I do believe we will not have an open floor plan, I want to go with more color.
We have had this picture for a number of years. I love the colors. I think it is perfect for the kitchen, so I believe I will use this as my inspiration piece.
You really can't tell here, but the paint chip on the left is a very soft yellow...Champagne Sparkle. The wood is from our current kitchen table.
Just look at these paint colors. I think they go really well with the colors in the picture. Since I am not sure what house we're getting, I will just have to wait and see what colors I will actually use. I may just go with the yellow and paint the molding white. Maybe I will just go with blue as an accent color. I'm sure I'll change my mind a zillion times.
In our house now we have plantation type blinds, but our last house had bamboo blinds. I really like bamboo! I might go with the bamboo in the kitchen, especially if is on the back of the house.
Well, these are my thoughts for our kitchen. I have ideas for other rooms too...but I'll share those later.
