Dark, cloudy skies. Frequent downpours. Summer is over! Good job on beating the heat and staying cool in what was arguably the hottest summer we’ve experienced so far. Now the monsoon season’s coming up, you may want to revamp your home, starting with your kitchen, to fight back the cold weather blues. You’d be amazed how a little splash of color can instantly uplift your mood amidst the gray spell.

Think Pink!

While red stands for a passionate kind of love, pink symbolizes tenderness, compassion and nurturing, three things that should not be absent in the heart of the home. Lighter shades denote softness and gentleness, while darker tones produce calmness and sophistication. Being part of the bright end of the color spectrum, a touch of pink in your kitchen gives a stark contrast, yet compliments, the gray weather outside the home.

Walking on Sunshine

Like a ray of sunshine, yellow instantly brightens up your kitchen. The light color brings with it a cheerful ambiance that causes people to be in a happier and calmer mood. Similar to pink, yellow is a complementary touch to neutral hues such as white and gray. If you’re bold enough, you can also complete the look using flowers and furnishings in orange or red.

Just because it’s dark outside doesn’t mean your home should be, too. While dark gray and black lend a modern and elegant touch to the kitchen, it has a double effect of creating and spreading gloom during the monsoon seasons. Instead, choose lighter shades that will help enhance the light around your kitchen, whether from natural or artificial sources.

Clear Blue Skies Ahead

Nothing reminds you of clear skies and sunny days than the color blue. In the kitchen, this shade radiates warmth, quietness and peace, and promotes positivity and an overall good mood. It is important to use blue sparingly, preferably as accents, as it can be overpowering. For best results, shades of blue should be paired with neutral hues like white.

Go Green

Reminiscent of nature and outdoors, green is a popular choice during rainy seasons. It is both soothing and calming and complements earth tones. Mint and apple green, particularly, look good with white and wood accents.  For more kitchen paint ideas, click here.
