Colour Palette: Making Yellow Work In The Kitchen

It's no secret that I'm a fan of yellow but this kitchen is bananas (no pun intended)! I would love to wake up and come downstairs for my first cup of coffee of the day here. Cripes, even washing up at that sink (with the no doubt beautiful view) would make the chore that much more bearable. I'm especially inspired by this space because yellow is difficult to get right in the kitchen. The use of the colour works here because a matt finish has been chosen, which prevents the finished look from feeling juvenile. Plus, notice how the yellow has been paired with rich purple accents and charcoal grey worktops that temper the brighter yellow hue. I also like how there's a mix of storage units; by having one open unit it keeps the kitchen from feeling too formal or stuffy. What do you like about this kitchen?

  6. That yellow colour is simply mon dieu!
    The only thing I would change are the dark countertops. It's okay if they are a bit dark but can I have wood, please? ;-)

  8. I love everything about this kitchen! Ok, well maybe I might want to paint the island a nice dark grey to pair with the yellow instead of the wood. I agree, matte is key :)

  12. It's so happy, isn't it? Being matte helps too, softens it I think. I just blogged on yellow too. It's a colour that just makes you smile. I love the crisp white sink and the grey pairing too.

  15. I do love yellow, but not sure I'd want an entire room this colour. I love one huge bright pop of yellow though.
    Have a great weekend, Will!

  16. I always equate yellow with the kitchen (maybe something from my childhood?). Lovely with a touch of lilac.
