The first room in our home that we are finishing will be our kitchen. Currently our kitchen is white and the walls are a cream color.

We are going to paint our kitchen orange:

This color is called Exciting Orange and it’s by Sherwin Williams.

As far as accessorizing the kitchen, I’m planning to do it in Aqua (at least for the Spring and Summer) and perhaps brown/red/gold for the Fall and Winter. Here are some of the items I’m considering:

These are Chevron Curtains that retail for $99 on Etsy.

Each of the items retails for less than $50 on Etsy:

The crown above would be used strictly for decoration. The vases would be used for either flowers or for storing spoons/utensils on the cabinet.

The above painted Mason Jars would also be used as utensil holders/decorations.

Now as far as the walls, I know that I want to use white frames (to match my cabinets and the white in the curtains). I’m thinking of adding three pieces of art (in similar styled frames) to the walls. Here are some prints I’m considering:

This print would look amazing matted with aqua blue and placed inside a white frame.

And finally, here are some photos that inspired my Aqua/Orange kitchen combo:

We will be painting before the end of June. I’ll keep you guys posted on the status!!!
