Pure pops of colour look wonderful against white, grey or silver. These are vivid, strong hues... check out that marigold yellow on the flowers, or the fresh blue tones of the dinnerware, and that great chartruese green colour of the fabrics. This is a happy & cheerful kitchen, mod & spunky.
The open shelving here really works, for displaying the eye-catching pops of colour. Also contributing to the great, modern feel is the chunky thickness of these open shelves and the island top, and the expanse of white backs on those very mod chairs.
