Sneak Peak: Fun time! Accent color for gray and white kitchen
We're almost there with a basic kitchen remodel with neutral white cabinets, new appliances and gray and white carrera in our 1930's colonial style home.
Unlike most, we chose to keep our's a closed galley kitchen, easily merging through opposite doors near our eat- in- kitchen space which open into a formal BM Phillipsberg Blue DR (french doors) and BM soft olive tone green on family room walls (single door). House floors walnut stained oak floors and kitchen walls are Cornforth White (very soft neutral gray by F&B).
I look forward to you're comments on accent color(s) and texture selection for a U shaped eat in space (7.5 feet width with centered window by 5 feet lengths on sides) and window and seat upholstery. The kitchen is pretty coolish neutral, so the question is warm tones (will close in eating space but add a punch of stand out color) or cool tones (may further open eating space and be calmer, but may blend in too much).
Further complicating the colors selection issue is my determination for a U shaped banquet down the road in neutral soft beige or greige leather (or vinyl) which will face the kitchen, not the window. So what I pick now should compliment this goal.
Here are some photos of our new eat in space which house a basic white legged, wood topped table and white chairs. My spouse likes colors such as the William and Sonoma Reds and Yellows (photo below of napkins) while I favor Farrow and Ball Pale Powder (sea mist color) or Borrowed Light (pale blue color).
The accent colors will be fabric placed on four white chair seats and cafe curtain and also be integrated into a white tiled half bath with black pencil accents painted also in Cornforth White across a hall (cafe and shower curtain, bath has window).
Thanks for your suggestions. Hope some room color shows-taken on cell phone. Chandelier is eagerly awaited Crystorama Hampton Collection as are sconces and knobs and pulls or Restoration Hardware in Satin Nickel. Thanks for your help.
