Help with kitchen colors and placement

Valerie MelvilleFebruary 25, 2013
Hello all. I am re painting farmhouse kitchen and would love paint color and placement advice. Very odd layout with adjoining butler pantry. Black appliances. A stove alcove. Want to paint maybe antique or color wash cabinet. there is a 4 foot high chair rail that can stay or go and wood floors underneath layers linoleum. Attached are my inspiration pieces for colors. 8 foot ceilings. Eastern exposure. Thank you in advance for your help!

I do like the chair color in the 2nd one. And the window treatments in the first pic - sheers with fabirc insert - very unique!

Pic I took in Missouri at silver dollar city. Looks like your look. Butter color walls.

Very much so! Would the butter yellow go with the black appliances? Any suggestions for a cabinet color - cream maybe?

AWESOME ARCH! Like to have you ship it over to ME!

Can you suypply a floorplan with deminsions so we can all see the layout and placement of cabinets, water, and electricity, etc.?

Can you dig up that linoleum and reveal those wood floors?
Can you replace the back with stainless appliances? Can you get some farmhouse-style fixtures for faucets, etc?

Your Ideabook shows some GREAT kitchens and you could easily have them with some windowed upper cabinets and some color. Are you going for more rustic or elegant?

What's for dinner?

Hi Valerie Melville, Marie here.
I would hire a local designer to come out and give you a professional hand with your colour choices.

country kitchens are so much fun - and important to get right to be able to incorporate all your treasures. The arched alcove would be gorgeous tiled in a mosaic tile.

I'd also add hits of red in either warm rich red paint or a grass cloth wallpaper.

Good luck with your project, and do consider hiring a local professional - it will be the best money
you spent to get your project off and running properly the first time!
