Colorful Kitchen

At first glance you might think that I modeled the colors of our dishes and kitchen accessories after those of our country's flag. That was not exactly the intention, but you can't help but notice a lot of red, white, and blue in there.

 The white plates, red ramekins, and blue bowls came from Target. The large white bowls were gifts from our Crate & Barrel wedding registry (we use the heck out of them).

 These cute little red (it's actually more coral), white, and blue prep bowls were purchased at Anthropologie. The stainless steel and glass prep dishes are from Crate & Barrel.

I initially had the idea of having green and blue dishes in the kitchen, because I love the colors of the sea and beach. That idea quickly crumbled, but evolved in a good way into the crazy and fun mix that is there now!

The green and blue dishes that remind me of a sunny day outside.

This blue, green, and white dish towel was a gift... and I love it!

The coffee mug shelf is overflowing with mugs and color!

The most colorful part of our kitchen is probably the coffee mug shelf. I love grabbing a mug here and there when I find one that I like. Some of them are gifts, some bought on travels, and some just because I felt like buying a new one. A colorful coffee mug (especially one that reminds me of fun travels or was a gift from a loved one) is a wonderful way to start the day!

That was my colorful kitchen.

What colors do you have in your kitchen?
Or is it a big mix of color sort of like mine?
