Look! Yellow-Painted Kitchens

We were browsing through some of our past house tours and kitchen tours and we were struck by how many people use yellow to great effect in their kitchen. Amber, for instance, really makes those number decals over the sink pop with her fresh yellow paint. You can see the before photo here.

Do you have a great kitchen? Would you like to show it off? If you're in New York City or the Bay Area, we'd love to come and take photographs. If you're elsewhere don't let that stop you; we'll just have to ask you to do the photographic honors yourself!

More yellow in the kitchen...


• Maxwell and Sara Kate's tiny yet powerful kitchen in their tiny but maximized apartment. The color of this yellow is Nacho Cheese!


• This time the cabinets are painted yellow, from Natasha and Alfred's Fall Colors 2007 entry.

• This time the yellow isn't through the paint; it's layered on in sophisticated touches with glass tile. This is from our kitchen tour of Kat's Open Entertainer.


• The Gillingham-Ryans' new home kitchen has a backsplash of bright yellow paint.

Sarah's Citrus Squeeze showed us a bright greenish yellow kitchen - vibrant pops of color and vintage posters liven up this tiny galley kitchen.
