Pop of Kitchen Color

Happy Monday, friends!

I hope that your Easter weekend was filled with family, fun snacks and furry bunnies.

Or, maybe just the family and fun snacks part.

It was really, really nice having the husband home for a long weekend. I feel like we’re wrapping up this house build and are nearing the homestretch.

And….the extra weekend time allowed us to search high and low for the perfect farm table to go in the new house and I could not be more pleased with the selection we made.

We joke that we’re building a new “old” house, but I think the combination of new construction with a nod to older elements best describe my design personality.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout this process it’s that I’m VERY traditional.

So traditional that I thought by us choosing colored grout for the white subway tile was out of the box and living dangerously.

Speaking of…..

Aimee Broussard & Co. New Construction Kitchen- Pop of Kitchen Color Contest

If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen the kitchen come together bit by bit but last week things really picked up speed.

The subway tile went in, the countertops were installed and the lighting fixtures were set.

Oh, and y’all- pot fillers might be my most favorite thing on the planet.

No more lugging a heavy pot filled with water for the pasta!

Can I get an AMEN on that?!?!

I’m also pretty smitten with this guy.

The cookbook nook.

With a window seat.

And a smaller version chandelier that matches my dining room fixture.

Smitten, I tell you.

Obviously, they are still working on wrapping things up and eventually I will have outlet covers, the cookbook nook will have the shelves installed and I might have some clean floors, too but for now I need to concentrate on how to bring some color into the room.

And I need your help!

I’ve always wanted an all white kitchen and I’m loving my white subway tile with white quartz and white cabinets on white walls, however that’s a lotta white even for me, and I want to add a pop of kitchen color in this space.

I do need to be cognoscente of the fact that my kitchen is open to the living and dining area so I don’t want something super bold in one spot and clash in another.

Make sense?

My go to place for anything home related is the  Wayfair website.

Wayfair- A Zillion Things Home

They don’t mess around with the whole “a zillion things home” thing.  They seriously do have a zillion things for the home.

You can find just about annnnnnything there.

With their help, I’ve narrowed my POP OF KITCHEN COLOR down to three choices:

CANDY APPLE RED

Pop of Kitchen Color with items from Wayfair.com (RED)

KitchenAid Mixer
Checkered Towels
Multi- Tiered Stand

 

I mean, if that’s not a pop of color I don’t know what is.

Then we have the MELLOW YELLOW:

Bright. Sunny. Just begging me to serve up some lemonade.

And then there’s the ever so calming AQUA.

Now I love the aqua but I’m not so sure it will give me the “pop” I’m going for.

Thoughts?

Now, let’s get down to business.

I’m serious when I said I was in need of your help.

So much so that if you help me choose my kitchen color, Wayfair will reward YOU with $100 to shop and pop some color into your own kitchen.

Or any other space that might need some pizzazz.

Need me to repeat that?

Simply help me choose some items from the WAYFAIR website in the color that you think I need to incorporate.

You’ll head over to their site, choose a favorite item then come back here and post a link in the comments.

Here’s an example of your blog comment:

“I think you should go with red in your kitchen. And I think you need these lobster kitchen towels:

You’ve voiced your color choice and you’ve picked me out a favorite item.

Easy Peasey Oooh La La.

We’ll meet back here on May 2nd and I’ll reveal the color I chose and announce a winner!

    I really love the idea of the blue but I think I have to go with yellow. It’s just so “HAPPY” and kitchen-y, to me anyway. The house looks GORGEOUS, Amy!! :D

      Thanks, Elaine! See that’s exactly the issue I’m having! I gravitate toward another color and keep coming back to the yellow because it’s so darn happy. Thanks for voting!!!!

    I love them all! I personally have the red kitchen aid suite in a very white kitchen. After a decade of that though, I would absolutely trade it in for the more modern aqua! It’s a perfect pair for the white in your space.

    My vote goes for red! Oh my goodness, I love your home! Now I’m off to tell my husband that we have to move somewhere with more character. :)

    I love all the options! My kitchen is bright yellow with red accents, which I love. But the aqua is so beautiful as well. You can’t go wrong with any of the colors!

    You KNOW I need me some Wayfair.com for my new house!!! I say go with Mellow Yellow. It fits you and it will look fabulous with that rustic exposed beam up top. I am dying to see how your casa turns out once you finish all the decorating and painting. I bet it’s going to be beyond charming!

    I feel the red would be too bold for the cottage farmhouse feeling of the house (at least that’s the vibe I get from what you’ve shown us so far!).

    Aqua is always pretty, but I think a pop of YELLOW would work really well to make the space feel bright and airy all year long. (Plus, yellow is the color of butter and you can’t go wrong with butter!) I also think yellow compliments so many other colors that it would work well with whatever ascent colors you chose for the living/dining spaces.

    I usually don’t go for clutter on the counter tops, but I do like the look of a KitchenAid mixer on the counter. I think it signifies a “homey” feeling or something. So, I’m choosing this for your pop of color: http://www.wayfair.com/KitchenAid-Artisan-Series-5-Qt.-Stand-Mixer-KSM150PS-KAD1590.html?piid0=7133956

    I love the aqua since it would go with so many other things. I actually like the three colors together.
    You could even use some eggplant purple with it. I like to change things out all the time. I even have different dishes based on what I am serving. I mean you just can’t serve jambalaya, chinese and Italian on the same color dishes. Regardless what you choose with be beautiful in your new home.
