Primary Colors: Blue, yellow, and red define this formal kitchen's cheery color scheme. Rich, dark blue paint and a yellow marble countertop transform the kitchen island into a dramatic focal point. Rust-red terra-cotta tile flooring grounds the island, and blue diamond-shape accent tiles tie the island to the floor. Adding doses of white, or another neutral, can give a bold color scheme a sophisticated edge. Here, crisp white walls, banks of cabinets, and handsome range hood do just that.
