A Kitchen Makeover :: Yellow Or Aqua?

Ever since this editorial highlighting the saturated aqua kitchen of Veronica Beard, I’ve dreamt of adding this kick of color to my own little galley kitchen…

Granted, spaces with higher ceilings than mine and definitely more light are a bit better at absorbing the impact of such a ridiculous amount of paint, but do not fear – I’m not painting the walls anytime soon. I am, however, working on a little paint makeover project for a piece that could end up in the kitchen, which has had me contemplating colors. All this time I thought for sure I’d go with aqua, but I’m starting to debate…

Perhaps it’s time I added some more permanent sunshine in my life with a dash of yellow? If there’s any place I’d inject it into the house, it would be this room for sure…

Yellow is a tough one when it comes to paint, though. It can’t be too buttery or too bright…

I’m really liking the tone in these last two spaces – and how different they are. One quite classic, and the other definitely industrial.

So, which one gets your vote, friends? Aqua or yellow? I’m excited to get this little project going!
