gold, red, battleship gray, hot pink, green.... all playing nice

mamadadapaigeOctober 3, 2012

My wallpaper went up yesterday and when I came home and saw it I almost fainted - I love it so much! The red in the wall paper matches the red cabinets. The background of the wallpaper is a metallic gold and then there is green and hot pink too! We painted the ceiling metallic gold to pick up off of the background of the wallpaper.

The countertops are walnut - sort of a rich brown. So many colors but I think they are working so nicely together and I was just excited to share the picture with y'all.

I hope you like it. The kitchen is being painted now - almost done!

I like the wallpaper. Could you take a picture back further with better lighting? I'd like to see more!

It is very fun, can't wait to see more. I love touches of large format wallpaper, they're like a present.

So is this your butler's pantry? Wonderful!! Brave choices...It's great to have fun in a space like that. LOVE the red cabs. I, too, would like to see more.

Like it? No, sorry. Not al all. I don't mean to hurt your feelings, but it looks.....oohhh...what's the word.....

AMAZING!! I love it! I always wanted a cute little powder room to do something fun like that. Never had one or a butler's pantry.

I've been thinking of papering a wall in my entryway once we have enough money to buy new furniture for the living and family rooms that both are adjacent and open to the entry so I know what pattern would work with those two rooms. For now, I'll just enjoy your whimsical yet elegant paper.

Keep the pics coming! I can't wait to see what I know will be another inspirational kitchen.

I love how much fun you're packing into that little space. It's the perfect area to go a little crazy in (in a good way!).

thanks everyone... i will post more pics as soon as all the workers stuff is out of the way. the carpenters still have to put the panels on the appliances and i have to put the glass in those butler pantry cabinets but want to wait until the dust settles. hardware still has to go on the cabinets, etc. etc. - almost done though. can't wait!

Shazam!!!!

It is awesome! Tell me about the metallic ceiling paint if you can. I'm thinking about doing my dining room ceiling in silver, but not sure what to use to really get a good look. Yours (what I can see) looks great!

Can't wait to see more!

thanks trailrunner and bee!

bee, here is the process for the metallic ceiling. i took a sample of my wallpaper to the paint store and found a regular color that was a close match to the color of background of the wallpaper (in my case it was Mortar by C2). then I chose a jar of Modern Master metallic paint that was a close match to the background of the wallpaper (in my case it was called Champagne). So the regular paint goes on first as a base and then the metallic over it - the metallic is sort of transulcent which is why it needs a base paint first.

Linking the paint company below. Good luck!
