RED PLUS BLUE EQUALS PURPLE IN THE KITCHEN!

After a long election I’m sure you’re in the mood for something TOTALLY different.  Me too.  Congrats to the winners and may we mend our fences and make up with all the friends we temporarily (hopefully) blocked on Facebook.  As someone who is passionate about art, I am always looking at color and the effect it has on our environment.  As a nod to the red and the blue states today I’m showing what they can make together, purple! Is purple a viable color in the kitchen?  If you love it, here are some ways you can incorporate a little lavender, lilac, plum, fuscia or just plain ole purple whether you are conservative, transitional or uber modern.  If you hate it, at least it’s something completely different!

KItchen by Spazzi. While purple cabinets are definitely a commitment, this kitchen is nicely balanced with neutrals which enhance the color.

I would call this one traditional verging on transitional. I love the asymmetry of the glass front cabinets and open shelves. That aspect is more contemporary but the cottage style of the cabinets and ceiling treatment are leaning more towards the traditional.The lavender here is not as much of a commitment as it’s on the walls only.

 

Also from theentertaininghouse.com, this kitchen also has elements of both modern and traditional and what a creative use of the color purple!

An island or a freestanding piece of kitchen furniture is another great way to add some color interest. This one is definitely traditional, right?
