Yellow Kitchen with Pink Refrigerator

Colorful, Culinary Delight

When it's time to entertain outdoors, nothing is more convenient than a kitchen just feet away from your dining space. Fully equipped with sinks, stovetops and plenty of countertop space for cooking, outdoor kitchens are almost as inclusive as your typical indoor kitchen. Designer Ashley Astleford even took it a step further in this Mediterranean kitchen by adding a full-sized Big Chill refrigerator (in a luscious hue of hot pink, I might add). It adds to the colorful, eclectic palette of the room, but ultimately the piece makes a bright and bold statement of its own. Design by Ashley Astleford
