A colorful kitchen doesn't necessarily mean a kitchen that's full of colors. According to architect Bruce Bolander, in fact, the way to go is bold, but in limited numbers of colors: In an article featuring his kitchens at Dwell, Bolander states, "I try to have a fairly uniform and limited palette of color and material in the kitchen. Kitchens tend to gather so much clutter and I find that starting off with clean and simple helps when the clutter occurs." We love the result of this approach as pictured above. Bold greens that form a taut, consistent surface kitchen-wide make a statement without making things feel wild or jittery. Do you agree with this less-is-more (but not a bore) approach to color?
