All the color inspiration came from the refrigerator which we found on sale at an outlet store. I wanted something small and nice looking since it would be a stand-alone item in the kitchen. All the color choices stemmed from that one purchase.
Colors used in my room:
orange, red, grey, gold, teal, sky blue
Tips for using color successfully:
