...to those white kitchens!
Christmas has passed and I hope each and every one of you had a truly blessed one. It's always a wonderful time of year, even a midst all the 'hustle and bustle'. So, since we are now approaching a brand new year I thought we'd share a few tips for adding a little color to white kitchens...a fresh new change for the upcoming year! These are some photos we just couldn't resist sharing with you...
You'll find that this kitchen has soft yellow walls but even if you don't repaint to add color there you can always just add a pop of color to your chairs...whether at the island...or at the table. Then just be sure to add in a few accessories to repeat the color in that room. Isn't this pretty?
This is one of MY all-time favorites here...again, the painted chairs and the lighting here repeats the color...all of which I dearly love. Doesn't it totally change the look and feel of this room?
Another great way would be to paint your island a color that you love and one that will work with your adjoining rooms. This just helps to warm up this otherwise all-white kitchen. Here, the repeat of the green is in the tiles over the stove...see? I like the little 'pops' of red accents in here with this green too!
The only color change in this kitchen is the painted ceiling, but look how much change and ambiance it creates...wow!
Adding in a few upholstered pieces in your fave color is always an option too...and here the green from the fabric is transferred over to the back area of the kitchen with green accessories being displayed all throughout the glass front cabinetry. Really lovely!
This isn't really 'color' added in, however, by adding in a more graphic pattern on the floor in black-and-white it still creates a cozy and inviting white kitchen...not to mention the fabrics used in this area too that make it all the more COZY.
And as I say...when in doubt...add window treatments and rugs...in color. This is sure to brighten up and change any white kitchen!
If you feel some of the above changes are to permanent then you call always just add in plenty of lovely accessories and dishes...in color. This can transform your white kitchen as well. How easy is that?
Here is another one of my faves (what is it with me and RED lately?)
If you will look around you will see simple changes...the red and white striped dish towel at the sink, a red planter on the counter, a solid red rug, and the seat cushions recovered in a pattern. That's it...so easy and very affordable for sure. Changes this entire area!
Whoa!....and THIS my sweet readers...is for those of you that are a
little lot more daring and want a big change going into the new year! Are YOU daring enough for this? To paint all of those white cabinets AND add in all the accents in that same color (i.e. rug, seat cushions, etc.).
So now you have no excuses! From simple changes to massive changes...you have hints and tips to transform your very own white kitchen for the new year! Wouldn't it be nice to make a plan to transform each area, one at a time, over the course of 2014 and then see all of the major change that takes place from now...until the end of next year? Wow! I bet we could really tackle alot of those areas that we keep putting off year after year! So here is the inspiration for the kitchen....now...for my famous advice I even give to myself...
