For color inspiration for the kitchen, look no further than your produce aisle in the grocery store. Colors taken from fruit and vegetables can make beautiful wall and accent colors in the kitchen and dining rooms. Letting food be your inspiration makes sense in a room devoted to preparing and eating food.
Soft creamy white parsnips to bold oranges and lemons can inspire everything from wall color to the color of counter top appliances and runners on the floor. Bolder colors for the walls can be inspired by the red of tomatoes, the purple of eggplants or the green of lettuce. Soft artichoke green, creamy banana yellows and pale browns from potatoes are more neutral and perfect for walls or even the cabinets. A throw rug by the sink or stove can be a bolder color to add a pop of bright color to the room. Play off your floor color with lighter or darker colors to make the floors and the rugs pop. Tea towels and canisters are also great places to add bolder colors.
A bowl of fresh fruit on the counter or island makes for a great accessory in the kitchen. Using herbs and produce as accessories are inexpensive and functional ways to decorate your kitchen. These edible accents can also add a lovely fragrance to the room, as well as colorful visual interest.
Next time you need inspiration for decorating your kitchen or adding a punch of color, look to your garden or produce bin in the fridge for color ideas.
