I've been waiting about 7 years to design my first yellow kitchen and the time has finally come! There's something about a yellow kitchen that just makes me smile! The past few years we've been seeing a lot of grays, black, and rustic woods which creates a very solemn and sedated feeling. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love it. But as the times change I'm really starting to feel like the use of yellow is a nice touch in creating happiness, optimism and confidence which is definitely the vibe for the future. I love the mix of bright yellow with neutral modern furniture . The deep cheddar yellow glossy laquer cabinets and countertops flood this room with energy. It's like a sunbeam shooting through the room. Black cabinets, concrete floors, a dark communal dining table , and wishbone chairs hold their ground, but definitely aren't trying to compete. The yellow and white contrast is a beautiful effect. The white upper cabinets disappear into the walls which blends into the white hardwood floors, so the yellow can stand on it's own and truly own the room. Again, the yellow countertop on the yellow lacquer cabinetry is great for creating a unified base unit and a very solid visual element. The black modern dining chair is a great accent in this bright setting.   A more muted Citron yellow is a perfect mix with a light gray and wire barstool . Although it stands out, the overall palette still feels quite serene. It's more of a subtle glow on a partly sunny day.    The yellow countertop and backsplash is a strong move. I love this bold statement and think that if you're a "yellow person" this would truly capture your spirit. It's something unexpected that brings happiness into your home. A home is a true reflection of your soul, so don't be afraid to go bold!  Images: Digs Digs ,  Emmas Design Blog , Designer Pad ,  Alinskie
