I’ve always been a big fan of incorporating color into interior design. I’ve also always been very opinionated about what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to color—at least for my particular décor aesthetic. For example, I have a greater appreciation for deep, rich color than I do for pastels,. Similarly, the trendy kitchen colors of my youth, like harvest gold and avocado green, tend to make my stomach turn. Imagine my surprise when finding so much to like about the plethora of colorful ovens starting to show up in kitchens. By and large, they look good! Are you ready to embrace colorful ovens with me?

Adding color is always a great way to make a bold, unique statement in any room of the house. This kitchen uses a palette of primary colors—red, blue, and yellow—to give a subtle nod to postmodern interior design. The fact that the red is incorporated through the oven makes this space even more unique.

Dave Hime, founder/curator of JapaneseTrash.com, has been an interior design addict for as long as he can remember. In 2005, he bought a house-in-progress and missed several opportunities to have an influence on his own home decor–leaving him wanting more. With design heroes such as Blake Dollahite (ruraltheory.com) and Robert & Cortney Novogratz (thenovogratz.com), Dave began seeking out online resources that would exemplify the interior design practices he's most drawn to: using color, texture and simple materials well. Bringing all of this together, along with his specific focus on providing interior design inspiration from a man's point of view, is Dave's mission: masculine design.
