kitchen vs living and dining decor...
TyFebruary 15, 2013
I want to decorate my kitchen using a pink, red, and white cupcake theme...i have a ton of decoration for it ranging from cupcake aprons to floor mats. well my dilemma is the fact that my kitchen opens to my dinning and living room, and i absolutely do not want these colors or theme in either....so how should i connect or disconnect the three areas....help. ps this is the showroom, pic is only to show apt setup.

What colors will be in the living area and dining area?

I would very much like the living room to be chocolate, burgundy, and gold.... The dinning room matching the livingroom with a burgundy accent wall... But of course the cupcake theme in the kitchen would make it a doozy to tie all three together...? Help.. :/

I don't see any way to tie them together unless you bring some if your cupcake colors into the other rooms. Keep it to a minimum...perhaps just a pillow or some pink REAL flowers on the coffee table and/or dining table. Also consider bring the red and burgundy colors closer to one another and use the one result color in all rooms.
It's definitely a challenge.

I would start the process by painting the cupboards "chocolate brown" Benjamin Moore's Chocolate candy brown 2107-10 or replacing the cupboards altogether in a medium wood tone. Then add a back splash in a multi-coloured mini mosaic tile such as Model #GL-260 Mono Serra which is keeping with the living room and dinning room colours. If replacing the counter-tops are in the budget, check out Ice Stone's White Pearl or Winter Sun. Purchasing small appliances (mixer, toaster, kettle) in cupcake colours is just fun! They can be hidden in the pantry when not in use.

I agree about bringing the cupcake colors in using small pieces like pillows, a vase of flowers or changing the burgundy more to a red. I would also keep the kitchen cupcake theme simple choosing only your favorite pieces. You could switch your pieces out every few months.
