I'm building a new home and I want my kitchen theme to be Chili Peppers. My counter top is black and gray with specks of red. My kitchen curtains have red chili peppers on them. Some of my kitchen gadgets are red and I have red pots. My major kitchen appliances are stainless steel. What color can I paint my walls and what other decorating ideas and tips can anyone give me?
Thanks so much for your input.
There are some great posters of chili peppers to frame. Allposters.com has some, all sizes, many ways to mat and frame. There are fabrics ( could you match the curtains?) to make potholders, decorate dishtowels with borders, make an apron, napkins, placemats. Are you growing some in a pot on your windowsill ? I have seen Calendars to hang on the wall that feature just peppers. Candles come pepper-shaped. Decorate cannisters for sugar, tea bags, etc. ? Chili pepper seed packages for decoupage ? Backs of chairs ? Google around. Good luck. What fun !

I'd paint the walls a tone of green from the foliage of the peppers in the fabric for the windows. Green is the complement color to red and will make the colors "pop"!
Have fun in your remodeled kitchen!

couldnt you paint them green. are the stems a shade of green??

You could paint your walls a shade of gray lighter than what is in your counter top, and just "flick" specks of paint in the the coordinating shades of red, black, green and red. It just gives the walls a hint of color without being overbearing!

Where did you get your chili pepper curtains? Am looking for some.

A person after my own heart. I have a decent hot sauce collection and I too have a chili pepper motif. I painted my kitchen with "Lousiana Hot Sauce" coloured paint. That is the actual name. It's a earthy red colour. Gorgeous.
To find the right shade of green to complement your red use a color wheel then try to match up the paint -Bettie

I also have done an Pepper/Mexican theme in my kitchen. I found some cool canisters and plates, bowls, salt and pepper shakers that I set around at Kohls. Now my search is for curtains. I painted my kitchen a color called dusted carrot. I am considering just using a checkered green for the curtains? I want something different but haven't had much luck

I too have chili peppers in my kitchen. You can get alot of nice stuff on Overstock.com. I got a canister set from them for only 35.00 that is shaped just like chili peppers. I too am looking for some curtains. Good Luck!

I have recently moved and am decorating my kitchen with chili peppers and chihuahuas. I have a chihuahua named Peanut and have collected many chihuahua items over the years. I am looking for chili pepper curtains also, I know Wal-Mart has chili pepper fabric but I would like curtains already made.

Hello, I was wondering if you found chili pepper curtains yet, I have been looking for chili pepper kitchen curtains for ever and can't find them.

Ralph Lauren Dresser red is perfect 3 coats matches all standard pepper colors
I also decorated my kitchen in chili peppers. I grow them and the plants make a beautiful addition.
I also done my kitchen in chili peppers. We painted the walls in a deep dark red with a black chair rail border then hand painted diffent types of peppers in green,red, marigold yellow and a med. orange. Found a small amount of fabric with black backgound, but not enough for curtains.
I decorated my kitchen in Chili Peppers, painted my wall to look like an Adobe retaining wall and yellow background. My imagination yellow for the sun! I made a stain glass string of chili peppers, chili pepper lights above my cabinets, & chili pepper curtains.
