The vintage look of this yellow-walled kitchen bespeaks a country cottage.
From the well-worn pine buffet to the butter yellow walls there’s a vintage look to this country kitchen. The simple style looks back to the 1940s when kitchen “furniture” was often piecemeal. The teal cabinets on the window wall definitely give that impression. Nothing else matches. A plain window shade hangs on the kitchen window with a colorful scarf thrown on the top like a valance. I love the little shelf over the vintage poster that provides a place to display pottery in the two main kitchen colors. While this kitchen surely lacks modern appliances (note the old oven set into the wall below the picture) it resonates with charm.

Have any idea of the color of yellow paint used in this kitchen? I am desperate for a yellow to compliment teal counter tops.
Thanks so much,

Actually I don’t have that info. But Duron Sugar Cookie should be very similar and Farrow & Ball House White is a bit paler. Perhaps one of those will be “the one” for you!
Do you have the name of the teal paint. I love it. Thank you

I don’t have the name of the color but even if I did no guarantee it would look IRL the same as it does in the monitor. And it will look a bit different in my monitor and yours. Then, depending on where you live and the light in the house, the color can vary. So best to have a few candidates.
What I usually do to match a paint color to a photo is get into the color family.
Here’s a link in the Benjamin Moore color viewer to Oceanic Teal 669, which looks closest in my monitor. But San Clemente Teal 730 and Surf City 731 are other good candidates. You can click on the colors below the big sample to bring those up. And you may find something else that looks closer in your monitor or works best in your house.
Love it if you would come back and tell us what you finally picked as closest to the color in the photo.
Thanks for stopping by,
