Color in the Kitchen: Lively Refrigerators

What better way to liven up the kitchen than with a pop of color decorating the fridge? This can come in the form of a new retro fridge or older classic appliance; a patterned decal or DIY chalkboard paint job. My grandmother still has a mustard yellow refrigerator from the 70's — beautifully maintained I might add — and it makes me smile every time I visit. So here are a few kitchens with personality, courtesy of the fridge of course! 1 Beyond the Chalkboard Fridge: Decorated Refrigerators 2 Jayne's Technicolor Playhouse 3 Inspiration: Sherbert Colors in the Kitchen 4 DIY Refrigerator Design: Contact Paper Pattern 5 Beyond the Chalkboard Fridge: Decorated Refrigerators 6 Style Tips from the Hotel Havana 7 My Chalkboard Fridge: Turn Your Fridge Into a Food Diary 8 Look! Polka Dot Fridge 9 Rustic Cooking and Dining From Marie Claire Maison 10 Making it Work: Minty Green 11 Refrigerator Makeover 12 Harvest Gold & Olive Green: New Kitchens in Old Colors 13 Paula of Henry Road's Colorful Home 14 House Tour: Dave and Shyla's Eclectic Loft at The Brewery 15 Flickr Finds: Julie's Well-Loved Family Kitchen And yes, I know, I threw a white one into the mix (photo 9). Not only is this a beautiful fridge and inspiring kitchen, but white lends itself as the pick-me-up color in this room. So for some homes — white can be the pop of color!
