Color in the Kitchen: Yellow

Whether you lean toward dignified maizes and mustards or clear buttercup and lemon hues, the right yellow brings a kitchen alive like few other colors can. Try these ideas for showcasing it at its best.

Soft, golden yellow enlivens both walls and cabinets in this sunny space. The gentle, versatile hue is as easy to live with as white or cream yet infuses an extra dash of personality. Painting the cabinets a slightly paler shade than the walls makes them pop.
