Shades of Inspiration: Colorful Kitchens
Color trends come and go, but the use of color in home design is itself an enduring trend.
Synopsis: It can sometimes be difficult to commit to adding color to the most public and the most private areas of a home: the kitchen and the bath, respectively. Not enough color, and these rooms can be bland and uninviting. Too much color, and they can appear trendy or outlandish. For inspiration on how to add but not overdo color in the kitchen and bath, we talked with a few of our favorite architects and designers. The photographs of six of their colorful projects show how to get it just right.

While we’re at it, here are also three examples of how to use color in that most private refuge: the bath.
