Kitchens the Color of Ice Cream: With Recipes to Match

Do you see mint chocolate chip? Or pistachio? Don't worry, we're giving you ice cream recipes that correspond to each kitchen, so the mouth watering isn't in vain.

We are complete flip floppers when it comes to the color we love most for a kitchen. Sometimes we want to paint our cabinets dark navy; other times we're all about bright and white. But if we based it on our favorite ice cream, we'd have a winner in a second (chocolate, thank you).

Looking through these kitchens just made us realize how many flavors and hues of ice cream there are. Our favorite may be the soft lavender that reminded us of Sara Kate's Blackberry Buttermilk Ice Cream- both a delicious step outside the lines.

1. Mint or Pistachio (or Mint Chocolate Chip if you add a few brown accessories), from House Beautiful.
