Let’s have a look-see at the color story of our Dutch colonial kitchen, shall we?
At the far left, we have Chambray (Pittsburgh Paints),
a medium blue that is already up + at ’em on the kitchen ceiling.
Yikes! — that swatch is way too bright!
This photo is more accurate:
I’ll admit that the blue ceiling looks a tad odd by itself,
but I think that it makes sense when combined with my other color choices.
Speaking of which:
The small white swatch represents the room’s future white crown molding,
all the woodwork + our white IKEA cabs:
Third from left is the palest of grays —
Thin Ice (Pittsburgh Paints) — for our walls:
Yes, it’s pale, but pale’s a good thing, sometimes.
I made certain that it does pop a bit against the white cabinets,
+ yet, it won’t be as dark as the gray backsplash tiles I’ve chosen:
I love those tiles so much! I want them to be the ‘stars’ of our kitchen!
Just look at this inspiration of mine!
Don’t you love the gray tile backsplash?
But I digress!
Back to my color swatches + the darkest of my grays, fourth from left.
It’s Volcanic Ash (again, from Pittsburgh Paints):
We will paint our kitchen door (see below) this dark gray,
along with the other interior doors throughout the house:
So far, I am very happy with all my colors + hope they’ll play nicely together!
There are a couple more colors — the 2 dark squares to the far right:
They represent my choices of floor tile for our kitchen.
I’ll talk more about them in another post.
