I tend to nudge my design clients to be daring with color in spaces where they don’t spend large amounts of time. I pesonally don’t enjoy lounging for long periods in rooms with loud color schemes, but I appreciate that vibrant and unusual hues can perk up a space.
Purple passion. This project was for a cooking school in Denver, but there’s no reason you can’t import purple into your home kitchen. “Katy Hume, the chef and owner of Stir Cooking School, has a contagious personality, and we wanted her vivacity to be portrayed within the design,” says Momoko Morton of Naka Designs. “The interior therefore needed to be vibrant and rich in color.”“Our primary goal was to make the space unique, inviting, playful and inspiring,” she explains. “Eggplant purple evokes the color of royalty, and it connotes luxury, wealth and sophistication. The dark richness of its tone also tends to imbibe the qualities of femininity and romance.”
The bright amethyst islands in this kitchen are what first set me on this kick. I love the contrast of this bold color with the exposed brick and rustic wood flooring. Try painting your island with Benjamin Moore's Passion Plum for a similar look.

While I'm certainly a big fan of the all-white kitchen, I have to say that colorful kitchens have really been catching my eye. There's something perfect and pristine about an all-white palette, a kitchen with surprising color is very playful.
