Color My Accessories
Begin with the end in mind! Visualize the big picture -- the entire kitchen, even surrounding rooms if the kitchen is part of an open floorplan. I like to think of it almost like a math equation, deciding where to put color in what proportions.
Two options are to group colorful objects together to form more volume in one or more areas of the kitchen, or scatter color fairly equally around the kitchen with carefully chosen accessories. Of course, coordinating colorful objects with design features such as a hood
, backsplash, island
, or other design element can create a cohesive look throughout the kitchen.
