7 Inspiring Colorful Kitchens

Ashley Trudeau

With greens, blues, and yellows, the walls of this kitchen are striking. And yet it manages to be both colorful and subdued at the same time - no easy feat. There's so much to love about this kitchen, from the vintage gold bar stools to the cerused wood accents, but it's the walls that take it from a utilitarian room to a fabulous and chic living space.

This kitchen is a study in color theory. We love the combination of the green cabinetry with bold peach walls and eggplant backsplash. Adding black cabinets prevents the colors from overwhelming the space.

This beautiful light-blue kitchen manages to use a traditional color in a fresh, modern way. The unadorned cabinetry, sleek appliances, and heavily veined marble backsplash work to achieve this effect. Parquet floors and vintage stools bridge the gap between old and new.

Varying shades of rich blue hues create a beautifully contemporary, happy kitchen that feels sleek yet warm. Mosaic tiles reflect light while low shelving decorated sparingly coupled with floor-to-ceiling windows help to keep the narrow kitchen from feeling too small.

It’s hard to pull off the inclusion of so many different hues and still feel like the eye has a place to rest, but this kitchen manages to pull it off. The blue and white patterned walls manage to create a surprisingly neutral foundation for bold punches of color and choice metallic accents. The use of different hues of pink creates a sense of consistency without being too matchy-matchy.
