Bright Bar Stools in the Kitchen

Do you ever have a million things to do but instead get distracted by one little thing that is not even a priority? After painting the kitchen new light and bright colors I have pondered adding colorful accessories and one of those is a set of colorful stools. My dining set and china cabinet are mid-century with a teak finish so I didn’t want to add anymore wood tones. I was thinking metal or a bright color and many of the ones I have run across incorporate both. I really enjoy how the stools in these kitchens make a bold color statement against a mostly white background.

The problem is deciding what color to go with. Although I love the reds and oranges I think they may clash with the teak furniture.

The blues and greens would play well off the pale Italian Ice on the walls and add contrast against the teak.

And the yellow, who doesn’t love a pop of yellow…

Here are a few great stools I found that offer the punch I’m looking for.

Now if only I could make a decision on which stool in which color.

I guess if I can’t decide what color I could just buy one of each…

  1. The yellow Target stools!

    • I do love those and they have them everywhere, I have actually noticed some popping up at TJ Maxx. I need the counter height though and they are a little harder to find.
