As you may have seen yesterday on Manolo for the Brides, I had Pergo installed in my kitchen yesterday. I have to say I am very pleased with the results, though it rather saddens me that it looks *better* than the hardwood floors I have everywhere else, and those were refinished fairly recently. Now that the very, very ugly blue and white vinyl flooring is gone, I can finally divorce myself from the impulse to use so much blue in the kitchen. It was a little monotonous, actually, for my living room is done in two shades of blue. When we moved in, all the doorways in the kitchen and hallway were edged in dark blue to match the color of the vinyl and we didn’t bother changing it since we had planned to redo the floors before anything else in the house.
Now we are faced with a conundrum. We’re more or less committed to the idea of keeping the walls white because I like a lot of color in the kitchen, but I like it on the counters and such. We all know I love purple, so I’m leaning toward that, but The Beard is unconvinced. I was thinking that painted kitchen cabinets would provide just enough color to make things interesting. The question now is which purple? Here are some I like, as found on My Perfect Color:
Vote in the poll to tell me (and by extension The Beard) which purple you prefer!
