Does your kitchen have a color scheme?

Mine is white and a very vivid lime green with stainless steel appliances, work tables and open shelving. Some of the counters are a pale butcher block. The floor is black and white tiles. It's really bright and not a color scheme everyone would like but for me, it's perfect!

I didn't choose my colour scheme... but it is a deep, icky peachy-pink colour. Counter-tops, cupboard doors... much too much pink!

Changing its on my list... just after the bathroom's done!

Walls are a caramel color. Cabinets are oak. Floor too . Appliances are black and stainless steel. Countertop is black. That's about it

This is really odd FM - I was JUST looking at your pics you posted and was going to PM you how much I like that green color. I LOVE your kitchen!

At the moment I have no color scheme in my kitchen. I know as I have been replacing appliances I have been going with the brushed stainless steel look. One day I hope to have red tile floors, real oak cabinets, yellow walls, not sure about the counter tops yet though. Some sort of granite just not sure which color will look right.
So basically a rough idea but nothing set in stone until I run it thru a design program and see what it looks like 'virtually'. I would hate to buy it all and then find out I picked all the wrong colors and they don't go together!! LOL.

I love your kitchen, too, FM. It looks like it was designed JUST for you (which it was). Very efficient and touches of wonderful color. I like the open shelves and lack of conventional cabinetry. I think open shelves are really easier to use. Oh, and my kitchen? Bright yellow, orange, cobalt blue, terra cotta tiles on the floor.

Was it you who liked my lime green cabinets? You are a girl after my own heart I love that color. The walls are a pale yellow the cabinet doors are lime green and the cabinets are a little bit darker yellow. I also painted one wall with a huge window a lighter lime green and the sponged a bit of beige and an antique white. Because the window is is not framed by wood I painted a dark orange frame and speckled it with some brown. I have a copper pot rack over two rolling island carts put back to back and the pot rack has a ton of copper pots etc, antique copper tea kettles. The lime green pantry has five copper chafing/fondue pots on top.
