As I am thinking more and more about this kitchen that I am going to be designing (omg omg) I am really drawn into these warm turquoise rooms. Turquoise can be a very cold colour; but it can be warm as well. Striking the right balance between the accents colours will be the key I think.
I'm going to share a few pics I have pinned on my various kitchen boards. These are the ones I am using as my main inspiration. I want a vintage kitchen, but I can't have one, so I'm going to make a close one dammit!!
Flooring is one of the first things I would like to pick out. It will really change what colours I choose for walls, for counters, and back-splashes. I think that the right hue will hit me and it'll all come together. Here are a few of the looks I really dig:
I love white cabinetry. I think it makes the space so bright and happy. It's also timeless. I don't want to do a kitchen again for 20 years. Here are a few styles that I think are groovy:
|um, can we please discuss that SMEG fridge??????????|
So I have one pic of a counter that I like that isn't butcher block..... however that's not a practice surface for this family!! I do love the Formica counters, and they are DURABLE, for ever. And that's what we will probably go with. Here is my lone pic:
|hello Catherineholm I see you!|
And now, to show you the main three Inspiration Pics that I am working off of, one at a time so we can discuss amongst ourselves:
I really love the dark floor in this one, and how the wood pops against all the white cabinets. I enjoy how the turquoise is kept to the backsplash, which gives it a bit of a showcase without being overwhelming; it keeps it modern. Yellow is probably going to be my main accent colour as well, so this has all the bases covered!
This one is pretty "retro". I am trying to stay away from full blown kitsch, but that'll be more dependant on accessories not cabinet styles and wall colours... right?
So... as you can see, I have some decisions to make! This is going to be hard... wish me luck!!
