Kitchen Reno Dream Revisited

Do you remember my Kitchen Reno Dream?  It is getting closer to becoming a reality… since we recently requested a contractor bid to renovate our kitchen :::squeal:::  I am so excited!

With the kitchen reno approaching, I have been looking at TONS of kitchens online. 

You might remember that I really liked the look of a black and white kitchen.  black and white kitchen

I also like the look of a yellow kitchen.  Yellow is so sunshiny and happy!  Look at that yellow kitchen.  Doesn’t it just make you want to smile?

These black counters are nice, but I am thinking we should go with something that is flecked, maybe with white and gray.

I really like the black table in the above photo, so I wanted to see some yellow kitchens with black tables.  I found this charcoal and yellow kitchen, and think it is LOVELY.  We will eventually end up with all stainless or nickel colored appliances, so I like the gray in there, too.

When we were chatting with the contractor, he made a very valid point.  He told us that if we want to use a statement color, we should think of using it where it can easily be redone in a few years if we tire of it (i.e. no canary yellow counter tops).  Since I really don’t like the blue countertops that we have now, I heartily agreed. 

Speaking of blue… have you seen Ellie Blue from the Vera Bradley Spring 2012 collection?  LOVE it.

We do have blue in our kitchen now (we kinda had to with the countertop color).  I have cobalt blue glasses that were my grandmothers, and we have blue dishes.   I think canary and cobalt, against the backdrop of a light gray wall, would pair nicely with black floors and white cabinetry. 

What do you think?

Oooh…I should get paint samples.
