Hello and a happy last day of July! If you’ve seen on Instagram, I’ve been trying out yellows for our pantry door. In a sea of white, I’ve been itching for more color in paint and fabric in the kitchen.

Here are some pantries I pinned for my inspiration. I wanted: lots of storage and a counter in the pantry that I could put the microwave, toaster, blender, etc. on to keep the main kitchen counters uncluttered and contain the mess.





could not find source on this one – anyone?
and here is a more simplified/less expensive version -- what we came up with for our pantry with a simple counter and lots of shelves:pantry
Much more pantry to come! Do you love any of these inspiration pictures? What would be in your dream pantry?

  1. Pick the second one from the bottom. Go bold! It will be wonderful

  2. I agree..the last two would be my pick! Probably the second last yellow, then you can put different shades of it around the room... the door will definitely be a focal point :0)

  4. Another vote for second color from the bottom. Love the pantry by Tyner.
    I have a walk-in pantry *not nearly big enough* with an extra fridge and shelving but would love to have a sink and drawer dishwasher in. Plus a garbage/recycle bin to the outside. Oh and a maid. ;)

  5. I think the top and second from bottom are too bright. The second from the top is my favorite. It seems just muted enough, but still yellow and when it's on the whole door it will be plenty bright.

  6. Lots of shelves and outlets for table top appliances, a freezer, and a big deep sink.

  7. I painted my front door Sherwin Williams June Day and love it! It's bright and cheery without being too mustard or too lemon! Whichever color you pick will be so pretty!

    1. Thank you for the recommendation! Just the name is lovely -- I would love the job of naming paint colors!

  8. I like the top color for your door. As far as pantries go I don't like the larger ones. It feels like they have two kitchens, but one is a tiny kitchen that you must commit to solitary confinement in just to contain prep work in. I like the pantries that are the size of yours and feel more like a cabinet that you can open and step into, but you are still in the big kitchen. -Kimberly

    1. Agree! Most of my prep work happens in the kitchen, but it helps to have the toaster, blender, and microwave in there. It seems those are the messiest.

  9. Second yellow. it's a pop of color but doesn't scream.

  10. Fourth from top. Looks mellow and great with white :)
