Reader Q & A - For Meetu - "Revised"

Meetu wrote in looking for suggestions for a color scheme for her kitchen, pictured below. I'm really picky about wooden kitchen cabinets and making sure the color scheme is complimentary to the hue of the wood. From Meetu's photo I put together what I think is a fairly complimentary and totally affordable quick-do to make this kitchen come alive, all for under $110.00.



First up, Yellena's Bloom print at $20.00. Put it in a simple black frame and hang it on the end wall there by the refrigerator.



From there, I'd purchase Oggi's Red Canister Set (4 pieces) for $29.95. What a pop they'll bring to the kitchen counter tops. (Don't tell my husband, but I'm ordering the black set today. Te he.)



I'd also buy a couple of Rock Scissor Paper's teal or lime woodgrain tea towels at $14.00 each.



Ooops. Forgot the rug. Crate & Barrel's Chalet Rug 30" x 50" for $21.95




And last, but not least, a stainless steel canister like you already have filled with two sets of these Zac Designs tonal green salad servers at $5.99 each.




I hope this helps Meetu. Feel free to offer your own suggestions in the comments. Enjoy!

Yellena James is so amazing and she is going to be in The Shiny Squirrel shop when it opens in October. I hope you can stop by and pick something up...

Thank you soo much for putting this up here! Can't wait to add color to my kitchen.

I had one more question...any suggestions for the color of the rugs to be placed near the oven/sink?

Thanks,
Meetu

My kitchen has similar cabinets, I am really into the reds right now so I painted the wall between the countertops and cabinets a deep red. I think it adds a little to the kitchen to help solve the "builder's beige" problem I had...I also painted an accent wall in the breakfast nook red to coordinate and draw it into the kitchen.

Those are great suggestions Heela. Paint would make a huge difference here, but I forgot to mention that Meetu is a renter and painting is not an option. :)

So thrilled to report that Meetu bought one of my teatowels! It's great to see a pic of the kitchen it's going to live in. What fun.
