We don't have a lot of wall space in the kitchen. What we do have is going to be covered by cabinets and wainscotting, so any wall space where you can actually see paint is going to be either really small, or really high. I originally leaned towards yellow. I don't know if I've spent a lot of time in yellow kitchens or what, but I was having a hard time imagining anything else in a kitchen besides yellow. I did see a really nice red kitchen once, but I don't think a red kitchen would fit in with the rest of the colour scheme of the house, which I've been describing as "vintage birdsnest" in my mind. Don't tell TJ. Actually, I think he reads the blog. Whoops. Um, surprise! My plan is to paint our house in vintage birdsnest colours! Think blues and greens and beiges...
Anyway, tonight I actually moved away from yellows and started to go towards sage green. Our cabinets are all white and we're looking at a darker countertop with dark hardware. We'd been thinking of a sort of sandstone dusted tile, but I think our minds may have been switched to more of a grey stone look. We're going by the following pictures for inspiration.
I love the white subway tile in this one:
Most of those pictures have wooden floors (which our floor guy is still convinced we could have), but this last one is more like what we're thinking of. Our cabinets will have the same look as the ones in the picture above as well.
And this picture, just to show how we're going to blend the cabinets into the giant kitchen window: with an arch! How brilliant.
We haven't bought the faucet yet, but we're trying to find one similar to the one in the picture that we like. The sink is really deep, which I love, and it will look fantastic set against a darker countertop.
So what are peoples thoughts? Green kitchen? Yellow kitchen? Please don't suggest blue/green seaglass kitchen, I've already talked myself out of that! Blue/green seaglass has been reserved for every other room in the house, sorry!
