New Paint to Freshen Up The Kitchen

Don't you love how new paint can totally change the feel of a room?  
I finally got around to painting my kitchen.  It used to be yellow - you can see what it looked like here.

The new color I selected was Sherwin-Williams Topsail 6217.  It is a very light blue with a touch of green.  It is so soft and refreshing.  It really compliments my gray-blue counter tops and back splash, which isn't my favorite, but looks a lot better with the new paint.

Now, I just need to decide what to put on this empty wall.

Here are a few things I have been considering:

Framing and matting this set of water colored herbs

Framing and matting a collection of water color birds.  This shop has some beautiful ones.

Hanging an large abstract art piece with pops of bright colors, like in this kitchen:

I'm not sure on the source of this picture, I pinned it quite awhile ago.  
If anyone knows, let me know!

  1. Very nice- Who likes you if it's been done, it's kind of a traditional. Really great! Just desired to say how much I really like your exclusive style sense! I just really like the shades and styles on those wonderful cushions you presented Kitchen designers. I think I might chew the topic and do this on our large white-colored walls

  2. There’s much more harmony now with the colors of your kitchen, Melissa. However, that space remains bothersome. Have you worked it out? How about extending the counter top to that side of the wall? Although I admit it’s not as practical as hanging an abstract masterpiece or a vintage-y cabinet. Leeanne@ProMaster

    1. Leanne, Thank you for your comments;) I would love to do some remodeling and expand the counter top, but that is just not something we can do right now! In a dream world, I would love too! But for now, I have to work with what I have! That open space actually works well for us right now, because I put my daughter's high chair there:)
