We are in the middle of a big kitchen facelift which has left me with little free time and too many trips to Home Depot, Lowe’s and Menards. But I’m happy to say that other than a quick trip tonight to pick up baseboards and quarter round, we are done with those stores and I am on to the fun stuff.

Our kitchen colors are Martha Stewart grey squirrel (walls), white (cabinets), blackish granite countertops and a lovely backsplash which I’ll reveal in a future post showing the before and after photos of our kitchen.

With these colors, we decided to add in a lovely sunshine yellow as an accent color.

I love the way grey and yellow look together and our VERY modern kitchen needs a little something more.

This inspiration board by Ariel Yve Design shows the way the colors play together. Modern, yet warm.

I am in LOVE with the print below in goldenrod (yellow) from Blu Lima on Etsy.  I plan to frame it in a white frame with a white or grey matte.

And on my kitchen art search, I came across Made by Girl, a fabulous design blog and print shop. I LOVE so many of her items so wanted to share.

I am still in desparate need of one more piece of art for our kitchen. Anybody know of any amazing prints or artists with a similar style to the “Let them eat cake” print?
