Color Palette- Month of May

MayColorPalette2_thumb3

It’s May!  A month full of reasons to celebrate.  Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Victoria Day Weekend.  The sunshine has started to show itself and warm us up, really brightening up everyone’s day!  Road construction crews and spring clean up are in full effect.  This colour palette mixes aged tones, rustic wood, and bold shades of rust to create a chic, eclectic look!

This Kitchen really captured my attention when I was searching online for the month of May inspiration.  The red stained cabinets look great with the rustic originality of the wooden exposed beams and stairs. Red stained cabinets make a bold statement and work best in a kitchen with minimal adornment, especially if the space doesn’t get a whole lot of natural light.
Black appliances look sharp alongside medium to dark gray cabinets. This kitchen palette of black, white and shades of gray is understated yet so sophisticated. A touch of warmth is essential, however, to avoid a cold and sterile-looking kitchen. The rich wood floor adds the perfect dose of warmth and character.
Yellow looks modern in this contemporary stunner. The bold yellow cabinetry is balanced nicely by the light wood floor and darker wood-clad exposed ceiling. The stainless steel appliances add a cool sheen to the mix.  Really loving the track lighting in this kitchen as well.
