    I am thinking about selling table runners, placemats, potholders, etc. at a local Street Fair. I need ideas for what colors to use. What color kitchens and dining rooms do you have?

    My kitchen is green with purple accents. Probably not your typical colors but they are my favorites. Dh was not crazy about purple on the walls, that's why they are green. My dining room has Teal carpets, but I use a lot of blues, burgandy and green.

    Mine has lots of sunny yellow, I like that colour in a kitchen. I love sunflowers too, I don't have any in my kitchen but I've seen a lot of sunflower themed kitchens.
    Also, earth tones, rusts, oranges... I think that would look nice.

    Ooo, I love green and purple! My last kitchen was green, my bf drew the line at purple, even though I would have loved it.
    In my next place, my sewing room will be purple accents!

    Mine is white and green with red accents. No, it doesn't look like Christmas! However, I know a few people who have blue kitchens. How about holiday themes?

    My kitchen is open plan to the diner, living room and the walls are a creamy, yellow; I have a lots of stuff - knick knacks (dust gatherers, my Mum calls them!) about the place, oh, and quilts of course! So I chose a muted background! But any potholders, placemats or tablerunners in any colours at all would fit right in! Just send 'em over, Janie!

    Go to book stores and peruse the shelves of decorating magazines. You can get inspirations from the pictures in there.

    Red and white gingham wallpaper and red and white checkerboard floor opening to living room with pale yellow/green walls. It's so cozy. I think alot of people especially younger than me are going for the 'retro' look, kind of an updated 50's look. Bright colours, repro fabric from that time.

    Just MHO.

    When we bought this house is already had forest green corian counter tops, not much I can do about that. I accent with red and yellow and have roosters
    everywhere. Table runners and placemates sound like a great idea. go for it! :D :D :D

    My kitchen walls are sage green and accents are dark brown, muted orange and yellow in the adjoining family room.

    Looks like there is a lot of green kitchens. I read that green is one of the colors in decorating now, kind of based on more "green" living.

    You never know what will catch someone's eye. It could be the scrappy look, the sophisticated look, or the whimsy look. I bought a potholder that had a picture of a camel on it. I have never thought about liking camels but that day I decided I liked them. :D

    Mine was lime green up until a few weeks ago (a very fun color that became a bit too much for me when I was in wake up mode). Now it's painted a medium brown so I can use whatever color suits my fancy for accents. I've been gravitating towards "fun" colors. Bright limes, fushias, aqua, orange. They seem to be quite trendy right now.

    I have done this and sold my work. Kitchen and food motifs are fun too. Good luck with your sales. I hope you will take photos.
