When it comes to kitchen design, we adore bright, vibrant color, whether it covers all four walls or simply highlights cabinets and other details. Here are ten stunning examples of our favorite kitchen colors along with our picks for eco-friendly, non-VOC and/or non-toxic paints.
• 1 Kenny Lao's kitchen is painted bold red, a color that's said to stimulate the appetite. Eco picks: Anna Sova in Opium Poppy or Yolo Colorhouse in Petal 06.
• 2 This Marie Claire Maison kitchen proves that pink can be surprisingly sophisticated. Eco picks: Bioshield Wall Paint in Mother of Pearl or Mythic Paint in Angel Food.
