Two inspired pendants and a rug with candy colors are the bright stuff for this open plan kitchen. Open shelving over the sink gets a neutral backdrop, all the better for showing off a fun collection of houseplants and ceramics.
Designers set this kitchen stage with a wash of pastels: pink walls and island, gray backsplash, white countertops. Then, for a playful edge, they layered bold pops of color on top; bright rugs, a blue door, pendants in sherbet shades bringing in so much fun.
The impressive backsplash combines the homeowner's love of pink and peonies. A climbing vine with vibrant pink peonies sits on a gray ombre background, which adds subtle drama that echoes the fabric of the window treatment. Bookmatched walnut cabinets feature clean lines, while a custom pink stove and island make a dramatic statement.
Punk rock princesses will feel totally at home in this edgy black-and-pink kitchen. With its black countertops, gold hardware and midcentury fixture, the space is the perfect mix of bold and glamorous.
