I just bought my first house and it has this cute little kitchen. It needs a new paint job pretty bad due to the previous owners' smoking habits. I don't mind the yellow but think that it could look a little less country kitchen with different palette choices. This being my first place and all, I have zero experience picking out colors. I'd like to do something fresh and bold but am worried that I'll go over the top. Any advice/suggestions?
Liz, we do love yellow kitchens! It looks like the trim is in good shape - perhaps a good scrubbing is in order, then a repaint of the wall spaces. We do like crisp, bright white in a kitchen; it's a good offset to many kitchen appliances and the white and steel common in many kitchens now. It also adds a brighter modern touch - more than antique white or cream.
We would add some modern printed curtains in the windows to bring everything a little more up to date and out of the country look.
