Hi, this is Christina from Down and Out Chic and I can’t tell you how honored I am to be guest posting on one of my very favorite blogs. Alek- whatever adventure you’re on right now, I hope you’re having a blast and I can’t wait to here all about it.
I’m here today to talk about kitchens, specifically stomach friendly kitchens. Coming from both an art and psychology background, I’m always interested in the idea of emotive force in colors. Did you know that, according to some literature, the color red can aid digestion? Don’t worry, I’m not here to quote any scientific studies, I just really wanted a reason to talk about red kitchens. Here are a few noteworthy ones…
Red is a great color for a rental space, especially if the home or apartment is older and is in need of new life.
Red and blue is a favorite color combo of mine and this darker red definitely helps to toughen up the soft, baby blue.
The owner of this kitchen is definitely a small space dweller and managed to combine what appears to be a seating area quite nicely into the kitchen area.
Cupid has definitely made his mark here. This is not for the color weary.

Red, black and white is such a sharp combination. It’s a shame I live in Athens (home of the Bulldogs) b/c I can’t use this combo without feeling like I’m going to a football game.

Bright red chairs really pop against a sharp white background.
If you’re too afraid to use red in your home, why not set up an outdoor dining area that really makes a statement.
Orange apparently helps digestion too, but I’ll save that for another day. How do you feel about red in the kitchen?
