They really took some risks with this kitchen design, as yellow could easily work against you when designing a kitchen. What makes it work so well is that they made the yellow a little closer to brown. In other words, by making it a dark yellow and accentuating it with browns, they are able to create a kitchen space that your grandparents could love. IN fact, when I first looked at this kitchen design I could almost see my grandmother putting out pumpkin pie after making a turkey. This is a very successful, homey design, and I am glad they took some chances with it.
