There are many ways to introduce color into your kitchen. Remember the avocado green, gold and orange combination of generations past? Colors have gone cool since those times and there are many ways to use color, whether in the wall paint or with something more permanent like colorful kitchen countertops and backsplashes. If you are just starting out on your quest to find inspiration, look no further than our kitchen photo gallery where there is a wide range of styles, colors, textures, and materials. I’ve included some of my favorite explorations in kitchen color right here.

A tile mosaic of greens and blues pick up the green accents in the kitchen and the muted greens and blues from the adjoining living area

Colorful tiles used in this backsplash perk up the space

We used pendant lights to give us some color against an otherwise muted color palette
