Canadian House & Home designed a five-star mustard yellow kitchen space in their 2011 Princess Margaret Showhome. Bold and beautiful, the upper cabinets — which provide the theme for the kitchen are painted No 7 Octagon yellow from Farrow & Ball. Their double-decker to-the-ceiling style includes soffit cabinets on top as well as an extra-beefy crown molding often required for high ceilings. The cabinets have Shaker doors and their old-fashioned bracket braces repeat on the feet of the base cabinets. The yellow provides a warm contrast to honed CeasarStone counters and a matte black CornuFé range. Soft cream-colored tile, also taken to the ceiling, balances the upper cabinetry and keeps the kitchen bright. One important accent color plays a subordinate role. The tan offset floor tile harmonizes with the natural wood of the kitchen worktable and sets it apart from the ebonized dining table. Country and modern combine well as the stainless steel farmhouse sink, paired with a Franke bridge faucet, demonstrates. Simple pendants are a reproduction of enamel fixtures sometimes found in barns. One fills the gap above the sink while the other lights the worktable. And even though this is a showhouse kitchen that takes risks with color, its beauty and practicality proves that risks are always worth taking.
