Olympic Kitchens

Sherwin Williams Bronze Medal Kitchen

Minimal is the name of the game in this Olympic kitchen that relies heavily on the blue and yellow scheme. While this design receives high marks for subtle bursts of color in the wall décor and vase of flowers, the green trim confused the design and our judges.

Got Olympic fever? You're not alone. While some people may be more likely to hit the track or uneven bars during these 16 days of competition, a few of us take our passion to other venues; like the kitchen.

Rings

 

 

 

With a little help from the Color of Inspiration website — where you can upload your favorite photos to find color ideas — we were able to pinpoint the exact Sherwin Williams shades featured in the Olympic rings.

Then, using Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer, we created three champion kitchens using those five Olympic colors; Dynamic Blue, Golden Rod, Tricorn Black, Lucky Green and Real Red.

While these bright, bold kitchens may not be for everyone, there's something about those shades of glory that satisfy our Olympic appetite. Check out our winner's circle.

Silver Medal

Where this kitchen succeeds is in its strong lines. Blue ceiling paint, complemented by black ceiling beams, and horizontal yellow window panes suggest a Mondrian canvas and deserve high artistic points.

 

Gold Medal

This contemporary kitchen masters the Olympic palette. Clean lines and minimal design fuse to create a flawless foundation for these bright, fun colors. Creative touches like the green rug and mod black clock tie the look together to create a kitchen deserving of a perfect ten.
