pops of color in the kitchen

if i had to sum up the anticipated look of our new home 
{known as willow around here}
i would say it's a combo of the two photos below
i am obsessed {especially in the kitchen} with tones of white and gray 
natural, organic, and crisp appearances 
and although i love the texture and look of wood throughout a home
{on a headboard, stools, a cabinet, etc.}
personally, i usually do not prefer wood cabinets- but instead,
love the crisp and clean look that white gives 
...with fun pops of color throughout...
here are some 'pops of color' 
inspiration for kitchens:
i was really hoping to get one of these amazing colored/vintage fridges
but mr. monaco convinced me to be 'practical'
and he was right.
 {i love, love our new stainless steel lg refrigerator}
however, he said we could put one of these adorable ones in the garage someday...
way too cute for a garage. way too cute. 
in my dream world, i would have picked a mint green or a canary yellow one
 adore these so much from modcloth- so fun.
a great easter basket gift?!
my sister and her husband gave us two of these amazing chairs for christmas- absolutely love. 
i have purchased spoons similar to this from target
however, these are an easy diy project
pick your paint and paint a color scheme that works for your kitchen

  1. I love color and tend to gravitate away from dark, muddy colors in the home. After all, I did paint my kitchen pink! It's grounded with dark countertops, stainless steel appliances, a gray floor, and white cabinets. Our house doesn't get a ton of natural light so I try to go towards light and bright colors to make everything happy.

    I'm definitely a fan of brightness in the home! :)

    1. pink - love!!!! so fun - and a great floor is my dream. someday! i also love white-washed floors. would love to see pics! and light, airy, and bright are my preferences as well! thanks for sharing!! xo

  2. I'm totally with you on this...LOVE a white fresh kitchen. Feels so clean and fresh...but those pops of color add just the perfect touch. Can't wait to see yours! :)
