For a more subtle display of color, choose a pale yellow like this design by Kimberly Nigro. Reminiscent of daffodils in spring, the yellow shelves in this contemporary kitchen gently brighten the gray subway tile without being overwhelming.

On the other hand, some colors are so bold that they’re simply irresistible. Set against the wood cabinets and dropped ceiling, the amethyst-colored walls add a dramatic flair reminiscent of black (but without the edge).

In this cottage-style kitchen, a red island also makes a statement. Where the light purple and green tile grounds the space, the red catches the eye and warms the surrounding cabinets.
