Decorate My Space: Hope’s Kitchen

0 comment

A couple weeks back I asked for y’all’s help on decorating my stairwell.

You were amazing with your responses.

My stairwell isn’t decorated yet, but I’m still mulling over all your ideas.

I thought it might be fun to ask for reader submissions and let everyone help out on decorating another space!

The first one up is Hope’s Kitchen.

Let’s start with her color scheme ideas and inspiration.

She knows she wants these colors:


However, instead of that darkest brown, she would like a soft buttery yellow, kind of like this one…


Hope says: “I’m in love with French country.  A touch of industrial. And a touch of blue.”



Her exact words for this space above were “Love, love, love.”


She is also a fan of the red and yellow combination in this kitchen above.


And the red and yellow in this kitchen.

Alright, so there’s her inspiration. This is her current kitchen. Keep in mind, she is in the process of a renovation!

She is going to make this dresser her kitchen island:

Isn’t that such a cool idea? She doesn’t know what color to paint it though!

She also knows that her kitchen countertops will look like the island countertop in this photo:


That wood will be on both her island and other countertops. She also knows she will have a beadboard backsplash.

Her biggest dilemma is figuring out what paint colors to use where.

So, what do you guys think?

She wants a red, buttery yellow, and neutral toned space – what colors should go where?

My first thoughts are to paint the cabinetry white, the island red, the beadboard backsplash yellow and the walls one of the neutral colors.
