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!

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!
