Kelly's "Fire+Ice" Kitchen
Location:San Francisco, California
Botanical Tint (Behr), Firecracker (Behr), Chalkboard Paint (Rust-Oleum)
Everyone who comes into my kitchen assumes it was my Kitchen-Aid Mixer (color: Ice), which happens to perfectly match the Botanical Tint walls. But it was a complete coincidence! I just really, really like bright aquas. I thought a similarly bright reddish-pink would really help the pantry to pop, and I chose to go with the black chalkboard paint on our kitchen door in order to pick up the black on our appliances and to balance the bright colors.
Just play around and try different colors--you'll eventually land on a combination that looks good and better yet, makes you happy. And getting there will be fun! At the end of the day, as long as you like it, nothing else matters.
