Colorful and Fun Kitchen Decor

Is your kitchen in a winter slump? Add some colorful and fun kitchen decor to liven up your space!

Happy February! I’ve been on a mission to organize and refresh our kitchen this week, and thought it would be fun to add some color. It often has a way of lifting a person out of this winter slump. Are you feeling kinda blah too?

My friend Aimee shared this colorful kitchen photo from Target’s catalogue. It’s the vibe I’ve been craving. Perhaps it’s a little daring for the neutral-lover in me, but accessories are always a safe bet because they’re relatively inexpensive and easy enough to change up.

If you’re daring and like to live with vibrant color year round, then I won’t stop you from painting your kitchen a bright yellow. My client Fiona did and she loves the cheeriness it brings to her space even on the dreariest of days. If you’re more like me and that kind of commitment scares you, perhaps adding dots of color here are there are your best bet.

Colorful Kitchen Decor

After searching for some colorful kitchen accessories earlier this week, I was excited to come across some fun storage canisters, ceramic baskets and tea towels I plan on purchasing. I also found a variety of decor options that may be a good way to liven up your kitchen.

Have you done anything to brighten up your kitchen this winter? Do you plan on adding some colorful kitchen accessories too?

  1. Yes, I have the the winter blahs!! It’s been raining a lot so little sun and this colorful post made me happy! 

  2. I love this kitchen, but I’m too scared to try something like that in my home.  I tend to lean towards neutrals.  But the accessories are great, and a great way to add the color without the long term commitment, like you said.  I’m exited for Target too!

  3. I definitely have the winter blahs as well.  I’m so happy it’s Feb because that means it’s almost spring:)  I had a yellow living room in our house in Toronto and I loved it.  In fact, everyone loved it.  The mailman, the pizza delivery guy.  It was truly amazing how many people commented on the colour.  Have a great weekend Shauna!

    1. In our last house the living room was Benjamin Moore’s Vellum and we loved it. The room gave off a warm glow at night and was beautiful with the fireplace on. I’ve gone in a different direction in this house- whites, blues, greens, tans and greys. Sounds a little boring, but we like it.

  4. You don’t have a Target?!?!?! I never considered that possibility. I DO love it, but somehow I rarely manage to walk out of there for under $100. So now I go to Walmart so that I don’t feel the desire to buy everything I see. :)

    I have serious commitment issues to color – ok it’s not limited to color alone – just like you. I could never paint a room bright yellow, though I love it in other peoples homes. :) I’m digging those farmers market baskets. I’m considering a little Valentines gift for myself…

    Happy Friday!

    1. My sister lives in California so I hit a Target whenever I’m visiting. I know it’s weird not to have one. We’re always excited up here to get new stores. I still remember when Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel came to town and it was exciting. (Oh, I live quite the life…)

  5. I’m with you on the dots of colour, but I definitely appreciate the bolder splash of the featured kitchen. For me it would have to be accents… I just have to decide what colour it would be :-)

  6. Currently I am designing a very light and bright kitchen for my new home. These bright accents will be perfect! I am also putting the cabinets in the walk in pantry myself to save some money and planning to paint them to look more custom. I am hoping to paint them a striking color for a bit of a surprise when you walk in. 

      1. Yes, we are building about 7 blocks away from our current home in West Springs, in West Grove Estates. We could plan a coffee with your sister and my sister (in-law) someday and you could see it in person. It is a custom design and I can hardly wait! Should be moving in July. 

  7. No problems with color here! Our kitchen is lipstick red…people either love it or think we are crazy! We like it tho;)

  8. I’m serious, Target hit the mark on their design this go around! I always loved them, but this is totally a new level…not copying the paint color…I’m not that brave either. But the accessories…LOVE! I’m so excited Target is spreading to your area…why has it taken them this long!?!? I hope you’re having a GREAT weekend friend! XO, Aimee
