This year is all about the bold and the beautiful. Replacing the simpler, neutral tones of 2012 are splashes of color, full walls of brilliant, bright paints. With vintage as the theme of the year, designers will be mixing patterns and showcasing chevrons, stripes and circles in design. The 50’s era will have a lot of influence in what we see, mixing the old with the new. Modern pieces of furniture will sit beside antiques and period pieces.
While some people may go overboard with the color trends, I advise pairing brighter colors against more neutral backgrounds to really let the colors stand out. If you’re nervous about painting a white wall purple, for example, introduce the color through pillows, bed linens or accent pieces first before making a huge commitment.
Pink. Not just any pink, but hot pink nearing fuchsia. This is a great color for a living room. Pink pairs nicely with a clean white background. Think fuchsia throw rugs and daybed pillows. Lamps are also showing up in bold colors.
Purple. Known as the color of royalty, purple has certainly gone through phases of being used. This year’s purple is trending more towards reddish purple, bright and alive as opposed to deeper shades with a heavier blue influence.
Subdued yellows toned down with green will balance out the color palette for 2013. This color has an almost under the ocean feel and will remind many of the 1950’s. This color can be livened up by mixing in colored glass tiles in kitchens or kept subtle with soft shades of ocean blue and pale green.
Emerald green will work for those craving a darker feel to their home. Painting a stripe around the top of the kitchen or using granite counter tops will work for those who prefer to stay away from the bright but still want to introduce color into the interior design palette.
Ocean blue has been a favorite of designers and continues to be this year. The versatility of this color in design can’t be underestimated. Blue, green and yellow are being paired together. The yellow can be replaced by tan or beige for those who like more natural tones in the home.
The kitchen is a very important part of a home. It is not only a place where food is prepared, but also a place where families get to spend time together depending on how big the space is. Most modern kitchens are big enough to include a dining area and this makes it very important to have the area looking as pleasant as possible. The color that you select for this room can determine the kind of effect it has on the people spending a little time within it. It can also determine the general look of the area. The colors can invigorate or soothe, they can increase appetite or reduce it. They are all effects that make it important to take time in choosing the best colors.
Before even starting the process of choosing your colors, you will need to understand the colors and their relationships. The main are primary colors made up of the yellows, blues and reds, secondary colors made up of the greens, purples, oranges usually got after combining primary colors and then there are the tertiary colors reached from different color combinations. They are all solid colors that have no white or black added to them.
Take your time, there are lots of paint colors to pick, we recommend you choose fresh color. It will be the basic color, by this color you can also create another various color selection for your kitchen. You can use wallpaper for your kitchen wall and border that are much more used today.

For the cabinets, you can repaint your old kitchen cabinet with new colors or you can purchase brand new ones. If you buy new cabinets, take some your time for final decision because the cost of new cabinets is very expensive.
You might use the laminate wood floor or kitchen tile for your kitchen floor, find the expressive tile that also can be used for backsplash and kitchen countertops.
