You Have to See This Pretty, Peachy Kitchen — Kitchn
Peach! It’s practically the color of summer, right? Whether you’re searing them on the grill or freezing them into a rich peach pie ice cream, juicy peaches likely have a constant presence in your kitchen from June to August. But if you’ve never thought about painting your kitchen walls in the kind-of-pink, kind-of-orange shade, this Barcelona kitchen, from Cargo Collective, might inspire you to change that.
At a little more than 1,000 square feet, the apartment is a bit snug, so the masterminds had to to be strategic with color. The solution? They painted a single accent wall in a pop-y shade of pink-ish peach (it’s also carried throughout the ceiling of the hallway leading to the bedrooms).
A shade this playful calls for some compromises in the rest of your décor, as to not transform a dreamy space into an all-over-the-place eyesore. Enter: lots and lots of white! White appliances, countertops, cabinets, pendant lights, flooring, and more keeps the room feeling neutral and airy. Add in a few bright accents and you’ve got a colorful cook space where it feels like summer year-round.
Try It at Home
Feeling inspired to start painting? We love the idea of a happy all-peach breakfast nook! To get the look in your own home, shop for a peach hue that has cooler undertones, like Peach Burst by Valspar, Perky Peach by Benjamin Moore, or Peach Mimosa by Behr. As for that awesome green shutter peeking into the room? We’re pretty sure it’s part of the home’s original charm, but a quick coat of Arsenic (don’t mind the name!) by Farrow & Ball would do the trick, too. Consider using it along your cabinets’ toe kick or or even the base of some wooden stools.
