Kitchen Inspiration-Obsessing Over Beautiful Pops of Color in These Beautiful Kitchens

Hi Friends,

I love a bright sunny kitchen…..and Today there are so many options in designing your dream kitchen. A simple trend in designing your kitchen, that I love and is simple and achievable, is to just add a pop of color to a neutral based kitchen. If you choose this trend, spend a little extra money on quality products. Invest in impressive lighting over the island, this is the room’s main focal point, and lighting helps to create your kitchen’s ambiance. Another notable focus point is the kitchen’s backsplash, either behind the kitchen range or through out the walls between the cabinets and appliances. There is a variety of tiles to choose from today-including stunning glass, natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tiles, each type has it’s pros and cons, so do your homework. Next, add a few sensational kitchen stools, a jazzy kitchen rug, a few pieces of fetching china or pottery to display, and always on my wish list…fresh flowers…seriously they always make every room more beautiful.

Add a beautiful shade of color with an eclectic pendant light above the kitchen island. Via

I love a bright and sunny kitchen. A kitchen that gets a lot of natural light is a must for a person who loves to cook, and I do enjoy spending time kitchen trying out new recipes. I am totally obsessed with the gold kitchen stools, the gold kitchen faucet, the gold cabinet hardware, and the fuchsia color pop in the kitchen throw rug and flowers makes this kitchen just a happy place to be.

The shimmer of an iridescent tile backsplash calls to mind the glint of sun on crystal-clear water and pearly shells beneath the waves.

Bring a touch of color to a white kitchen with a touch of nautical style elements. This kitchen is gorgeous, I love the designer choice to let the view be the star of this room. The nautical blue and white kitchen stools, flowers and greenery is all the color this kitchen needs.

A crisp white kitchen with vintage-new appliances in aqua adds a splash of coastal vibe, and the pretty backsplash is so beachpretty! Via

I love a roman shade in a kitchen, pick out a pretty fabric and find a local seamstress and voila…you have a beautiful window treatment that has your signature look.
