Upcoming Design Around This #16: Yellow Kitchens

This thread is the introduction thread for the next Design Around This. Do not post your designs to this thread. We'll be posting a separate design thread in about a week, and you can post your designs then. In the meantime, I hope you'll be working up some lovely designs. For information on how to construct a design board, please see About the Design Around This threads . If you don't want to construct a board in a formal way, you can post individual photos and group them to achieve a similar effect.

The the theme of the next thread will be yellow kitchens. There has been some interest recently here, and yellow has historically been a popular color for kitchens. The only real rule here is that you need to feature yellow prominently, not just with accessories but with at least one major design element. However, that leaves plenty of room to introduce other colors, and yellow doesn't have to be the dominant color.

Everyone is encouraged to participate. A lot of people seem to have the impression that you have to be "talented" to do this, but most of us had never done this before attempting it on one of these threads. The how-to thread helps with technique, a little bit of reading and research helps with the topic (although yellow kitchens are pretty self-explanatory), and learning by doing is the rest of it.

I found some examples of yellow kitchen, comtemporary ones first and then yellow kitchens over the decades.
