Bring some fun into your kitchen using a concept as simple as pie—colour! A kitchen with colourful accents puts visitors at ease and ensures that they will feel welcome in the heart of your home. This ideabook will show you how to bring colour and life to your kitchen in a simple way with lighting, furniture and appliances.  We know that this room is one of the most important in the home, so decorate your kitchen to make it an enjoyable place for parties, cooking or just drinking a glass of wine with friends.

Deco Blue

Blue is the new trendy colour for kitchens. Once it was red, but that era is long gone! Blue, however, is not a very warm colour. So why choose this hue for your kitchen? Blue makes us think of travel, and in the culinary world we travel with each meal! Each shade of blue can imply something different, so be sure to choose the right one to create the atmosphere that suits you the most. For example, pastel blue is synonymous with romance, turquoise with pop culture, and electric blue as a mood booster. In the pictured example, blue is combined with white for purity but also with a wood floor, making this a stylish and modern kitchen.

Green is a refreshing colour that evokes nature and encourages good moods. Ideally combined with white, as shown here, the green wall brings a touch of vegetables and spring to this modern kitchen.

Cheerful yellow

Yellow is a warm colour that can brighten any interior. It is also often used to decorate dark rooms, such as those facing north. We associate this colour with the sun, harmony and benevolence, the perfect adjectives for friendly rooms such as the kitchen or dining room. Looking at the picture here, we have only one desire: to gather around this little bar and have a drink with friends while our meal simmers on the stove. The yellow is combined with globe-shaped lamps, round furniture and white goods. The colour plus the lack of hard geometric shape softens the room, helping to appear less sterile. Modern and friendly, this kitchen is a marvel in design.

Orange is certainly not the first thing that jumps to mind when it comes to decorating our home, but it is sad that this colour is so overlooked. The stimulating shade, named after the fruit that brings vitamins, will help you bring pep to your kitchen! As we can see with a pop inside this orange kitchen, the homely colour brings more than a touch of gaiety.

Royal style

This unique kitchen has a predominantly royal style. The golden counter and trim combine with the fuchsia cabinets for a truly majestic look. Brilliant details and warm colours make this kitchen a glamorous space, and give visitors a sense of privilege. Without question, this modern kitchen with historical accents will impress your guests. 

Colour fusions

This is a kitchen that invites reflection! Indeed, the first question that arises while admiring this room is what could this colour be! Is it fuchsia, pink or purple? The spectacular result seems to be a mixture of these three colours, and it creates a somewhat mysterious warmth. The lighting, soft but intense at the same time, enhances the modern and minimalist equipment and furniture in the kitchen. 

Vivid red

Red can sometimes seem intrusive, but this is far from the case here. This kitchen is flamboyant, fun and greedy, inviting us to taste everything that is presented. Its bright and audacious design lights up the whole room. This kitchen is a perfect example of how colour choice can change the mood of a room. 

Black and white

White and black are the most used colours in the kitchen, as the marriage of these shades is rarely a mistake. As this photo proves, the contrast created by the combination of the two, creates elegant simplicity and timelessness, and adds a grace that would be difficult to achieve using other shades. The black lines and geometry of this kitchen bring fluidity to this dynamic ensemble.
