Be Our Guest: Adding Color to Kitchen Designs

Hello, all! Mari here from Design Shuffle, a fantastic online community for interior designers, other design professionals and design lovers from around the world. I am so happy to be here visiting J&K Homestead as a guest blogger. Today, we're talking color and kitchens. Whether you want to enjoy a little color during dinner prep or an intense color experience while entertaining, here are eight beautiful decorating ideas for adding color to kitchen designs. Please enjoy!

Colorful Kitchen

Beautiful blue glass tiles and blue accessories and textiles give this country kitchen an inviting coastal feel.

In this all white kitchen, lovely little pops of color come from decorative objects, serving pieces and a single glossy red hanging pendant.

An easy, but effective way to add color to a white or black and white kitchen is with fresh fruit, vegetables and flower. Talk about quick changes, this one is simple, but creative.

Colorful Kitchen

Colorful kitchen design ideas are sometimes bold like this brilliant red apron sink. Not for everyone, but surely a source of joy for the family who eats and cooks in this wide open space. I love the addition of magenta skirting.

Colorful Kitchen

Modern and very stylish, this kitchen is also feels comfortable and inviting with soft color on the cabinets. Wouldn't it be marvelous to sit for a while and visit over coffee or tea and pastries? I love those brightly colored cups and saucers.

A color-splashed wall sets the tone for this stunning Danish kitchen. What is your favorite element in this modern space?

Filled with gorgeous interior design ideas, this soft green kitchen is one of my favorites. Enveloping a room in color does not have to be risky. By choosing a pale version of your favorite hue, you can use it with abandon and never tire of the look.

Colorful Kitchen

Then again, if you're fearless about color in your interior spaces, rather than pale shades, choose the happiest, most brilliant hues you can find. Here, the homeowners seem to adhere to the adage "Go bold or go home." Only they went a step further and took bold home to their kitchen.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but
    I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I
    had to ask!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of
    if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video
    clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
    Terrific blog!
