8 Yellow Kitchens We Covet

For the longest time, whenever I had the choice of color for a new gadget or serving piece for my kitchen I chose yellow. Why? To me, it's the warmest, most welcoming color. And while I couldn't paint the walls of my rental apartment kitchen yellow, I could find other ways to incorporate this happy hue, which makes me smile every time I look at it.

These kitchens, all from Apartment Therapy home tours over the years, with their cheery yellow walls and accents, make me feel the same way.

1. Lucy's Sunny, Airy Brooklyn Kitchen

While the walls of this kitchen are yellow, it also proves you don't have to stick to just one theme. The cookbook covers and vintage seltzer bottles balance everything out for a beautiful multi-hued space.

2. Jill's Blue and Yellow Kitchen

This butter yellow and aqua kitchen certainly sticks to a theme. We love the balance between the yellow walls, white cabinetry, and pops of aqua in addition to the aqua wainscoting on the island.

3. Blythe's Bohemian West Hollywood Cottage

The yellow walls of this retro kitchen keep it light enough, even with the limited windows, without feeling too stark or monochromatic as it would if the walls were painted white.

4. Brice & Ilene's Chicago Getaway

This is a completely different take on the yellow, black, and white color scheme. It adds in a bit of gray with the tile backsplash, and the vintage poster ties everything together.

5. Ila & Nate's Corridor of Color

This Massachusetts home is a color-lover's dream. Each room has a different hue, all offset by white trim. The kitchen gets a bright-yellow treatment that feels perfectly suited to the space.

6. Leslie & Adam's Home for Two

The breakfast nook in this kitchen is another chance to show off the retro charm. The diner-style kitchen table is the perfect fit.

7. Amy's Apartment: Collections of Color

Don't be afraid to mix yellow and red in your kitchen; this bright space is proof that it can be done, and done well. We especially love the red painted table.

8. Danielle's Bright & Multi-Functional Top Floor Apartment

Proof that you don't have to paint your whole kitchen yellow for it to feel like a yellow kitchen, this small space is one of our favorites. The bright yellow tile and track lighting make a big impact.
