i love you, yellow kitchens

As of late, Bo and I have been obsessively collecting photos of kitchens. And I have always felt that a kitchen should be yellow.
This color obsession also stems from this cafe from our hotel in L.A. that was solid yellow. I'm talking yellow, like a lemondrop.

We've been talking about kitchen renovation plans for a few months now, and our goal is to combine gray, stainless and a big splash of yellow in an interesting way. So imagine my glee when I ventured to IKEA with a couple of girlfriends two weeks ago and discovered that their yellow AKURUM cabinet doors were being discontinued and were on sale for $10 each, any size! I was practically jumping up and down, and giddily scooped up a few doors to get us going. We have a lot more planning to do, but I'm thinking that these yellow beauties sitting right here in our house will get us inspired to go forth and conquer this project once and for all. (I'm awfully stoked.)

  2. I love that idea. I've been in love with yellow since I was in first grade (Wanted a yellow room with black + white racing stripes around it. Never happened.)

    Have to show you this house that I loved for that very reason. A girl I know, Beth, lives there now + she changed it, but I'll always have the photos. It's a wicker patter wallpaper in the kitchen since you can't really see it.
