Are you renting? If you own this kitchen, you could paint the cabinets too. At the very least, a good scrubbing, and new handles will update those cabinets. The counters are great, and you could get some cute baskets at Michaels or the Container Store and use the space above your cabinets and refrigerator for additional storage. A roman shade in a bright pattern (search online) for your window will add a lovely punch of color. Try an indoor/outdoor rug in the kitchen (stains wash right off). Ballard Designs sells them in a huge variety of colors and sizes. Check their colors out; you may find a color that you like for your walls. Also, don't forget to freshen up your ceiling with a crisp coat of white paint. I think your kitchen could be adorable and not cost too much to brighten up. Just do one project at a time so you don't get overwhelmed mentally or financially. I would especially love to see a small lamp on the counter under the window that you could leave on when you leave the kitchen. That way you don't have to leave the overhead lights on all night long. Check out consignments stores, Goodwill, etc. Good luck with your project and keep us updated!

That's not a small kitchen (at least not to me) and looking at your ideabook you like soft colors of all sorts. What could be better than white kitchen cabinets to paint around! I see the white tile goes up on all walls, right? Even better! Now the floor won't interfere with the walls either! Anything is possible!

I had a similar kitchen once (half the size!) and painted the walls bright pink and soft orange, just because they were small and because I could. Such fun, but only possible when you can decide yourself.. Are you single or do you live with someone?

Start with new handles, steel/aluminum, shaped like the ones on the fridge. Major difference.
