In the interim, take a look at these quick and easy tips for adding a splash of color to the most important room in the house (for foodies, at least):

  1. Buy the only trash can you’ll ever love

The simplehuman® 8 gal. Retro Step Can from the Container Store comes in red and is a surefire way to add retro flair and a burst of color to your kitchen.

Sure, it might seem like a head scratcher to shell out a hundred bucks for a garbage can, but this one is no ordinary trash receptacle. The proprietary lid shox® air suspension system controls the lid for a smooth, silent close and bag tuck® technology hides your bag when the can is shut.

Get one and thank us later.

  1. Take a walk on the wild side with patterned dish towels

Toss out those tattered old dish towels and upgrade to bright prints from Anthropologie or Crate & Barrel.

A collection of quality dish towels look great folded neatly across a wooden display rod.

  1. Hang a unique glass pendant light

Not all kitchen additions need to be practical. Check out the amazing collection of pendant lights over at shadesoflight.com and install your favorite just for the heck of it.
