Your kitchen should be an inviting place, but not overwhelm you with bright colors. Fire and water elements are active in the kitchen, so it's best to stay away from fire colors like red and orange and create balance with cooling colors like white, pale green or blue. I also find pale yellow brings in a little touch of sunshine, which is always uplifting. The color yellow corresponds to the solar plexus chakra, where a major part of the digestive system is located, so it can promote healthy digestion.
