So…kitchen ideas. We’re into open shelving, we’ve got the backsplash thing down, but where are we getting inspired by color?Gone are the days when we’d accept the combination of blonde wood cabinets, black speckled granite and colorless white walls. These days, we’re all about a little kick! A healthy dose of color is what we’re currently cooking up in the kitchen.

Here, introduce an unexpected splash of color in your cabinets. The bright teal here does the trick! Go the extra mile and stamp some amazing oranges up your white walls, for a fresh way to play with your food!
