White kitchens have been on trend for a few years now. As much as I love the look of a clean, white kitchen, I also love the look of bold colors in the kitchen. It’s asking a lot to constantly update your kitchen cabinets and countertops, so that’s not really an option. The best alternative is to add color through accessories and decor pieces! In fact, layering color on white and black is both stylish and classic. Here I have 5 simple tips for you to add color to your kitchen.

1. If you have open shelving, fill it with colorful ceramics and dishware (seen above). You can either stick to a specific color scheme for a sophisticated look or you can add lots of colors for a more playful look. One idea is to create a color scheme using 3-4 complimenting colors. After you’ve chosen your color palate, visit a local antique store and shop for ceramics and pottery in those colors. It’s amazing what you can find!

2. Displaying fruit and veggies on your counters in large baskets can immediately add a nice, organic variety of color. I love displaying lemons for a pop of yellow or avocados for a deep green hue.

3. If you have a bar or an island, choose colorful stools or chairs to add a lovely pop of color. Go bright if you’re brave or opt for softer tones for more of an on-trend look. These teal chairs look amazing next to that natural wood and the dark cabinets. You could also mix and match colors for even more personality.

4. If you want to add a more permanent dose of color, paint your backsplash. You can even paint tile. You just need to prime and use a paint that is made for that material. Use an unexpected color or you could even paint a fun pattern!

5. Another quick and simple idea is to use colorful art. I love the look of art in the kitchen. You spend so much time in the kitchen, so why not add some interesting texture with an artistic piece? A great place to look for art is thrift shops, consignment shops, and antique stores. Bold botanicals can look striking in a kitchen!
