My work-in-progress kitchen is designed in a black, white and yellow color palette with splashes of red. (I read somewhere that red and yellow illicit feelings of hunger, which if you like to cook, make them excellent choices for a kitchen.) We all know black and white appliances are soooo easy to come by, but yellow—and I don’t mean that 70′s yellowish color that just looking at it makes me feel queasy—I mean cheerful, beautiful yellow. That’s a design challenge.

Abt Electronics KitchenAid Mixers

That’s why I’m super stoked to give two, that’s right…two Design Happens readers the opportunity to win a KitchenAid stand mixer from Abt Electronics in any shade they so desire. This appliance is a must for any stylish cook. Tangerine? Onyx? Caviar? They’ve got it all. Plus, Majestic Yellow, the perfect shade for my Mickey D’s inspired kitchen. Can’t decide what color you like, call the Abt award-winning support team to coach you through this all-important decision—and just about anything else. (Seriously…ask for Kevin R., and while you’ve got him on the phone, grill him about his competitive sneaker design hobby.)

Answer this week’s question before 12/11c Monday, March 28, to be entered for a chance to win.

    I would like my kitchen to be garnet and white with a bit of black accent. I have the garnet paint all picked out, but haven't gotten it painted yet. I picked the color off of a rug I have in front of the sink. Thank you.

    My kitchen cabinets are white with stainless steel button handles. The counter top and back splash are beige and the walls are baked sconce, My appliances are stainless steel and black. I like it, because it's always bright and clean, but I would love to add a little splash of bright color in appliances: red, yellow apple green. That would be a great addition.

    Blue and White, like the plates my grandmother's sister would serve us icecream and chocolate crinkle cookies on! Must have a hardwood floor.
