I need some help picking out my kitchen color. If I pick the wrong freaking paint color I'm going to be like that crazy chick in Fatal Attraction. Sitting on the kitchen floor turning the lamp on and off, on and off, and hating the color in every light.
Concord Ivory from Benjamin Moore is the color of the rooms surrounding the kitchen. Hot, gay Nate from Oprah picked the color when he did a remodel and I loved it. It's nice and glowy and not too yellow. Sherwood Green is the color of a hallway near the kitchen. You have to stand at an odd angle to be able to view this hall, the yellow rooms and the kitchen in one glance. But it can be done. Which rules out painting the kitchen green. Cause two greens that aren't the same would look bad right?
The kitchen cabinets will be Nexxus Birch from Ikea. We have a couple of aluminum and glass ones as well. And the back splash is going to be miniature white subway tiles. (Actually much smaller than in this picture but it's close enough to give you the idea.) I'm trying hard to merge some modern stuff (the cabinets) with some vintage stuff (the tile) because that's kind of the vibe I'm going for. Hillary at Wee Wonderfuls kicks ass at this style. My hope is that I can then put obscure crap that I sniped on Ebay on the counters and walls. So the place feels clean and modern with funky random decor. Does that make sense?
So what the hell color do I paint it? Right now I'm leaning toward a smoky gray/blue. But I'm worried that I'll end up with a Kountry kitchen and my relatives wills start giving me crap with chickens and cows on it. (And if you have a Kountry kitchen I'm sure it's beautiful.) So help me man.
