Kimmy-Cakes

Hi all. New to the site and need some color advice. My husband and I are opening up a bakery and We're having a super hard time finding the perfect colors. It has a small entry way that opens up into a pretty narrow hallway. Off to the left is the room I'll be baking in and displaying My goods, it measures 10'x20'. There's also a 2nd room that also measures 10'x20' that will offer seating for those wishing to sit a spell. Both rooms can be seen from the entryway.
I started out with cupcakes but adding muffins, scones, croissants and fresh breads, along with teas and italian hot chocolate. The name is Baby-Cakes Bakery so it's not too formal, more fun & hip.
I hope I'm not being too forward by asking so much-being a new member and all but this thing really has Me stumped. I thought picking the colors would've been the easy part. Boy was I wrong.

Thanks in advance for all the help,
K

Congrats on your new place!
Thats how I found this site too- looking for paint colors
you'll find a million options here, its great

I know red tones make people want to eat, so I came up with touches of fuscia, maybe a stripe or accessories, I think thats kinda hip,
yellow makes me happy and I think of cupcakes also

The cutesy bakery in my town is also yellow, and they do very well

good luck !

a happy place

Ack! We're painting a business as well so I feel your pain It all seems to be about looking for colors and combinations that are attention-getting without making anyone's eyes bleed, especially the people that are there working all day.

If you sell chocolate croissants and bread I suggest this scheme:
New Bakery
use strong colours sparingly just as accents - cups, rims, logo, chairs.
You can choose two of strong colours and use them with beige and yellow - they all go together.
I also like this one which Cooler has sugessted:

i always wanted to own a fantasy bakery. this is how i imagined mine. warm neutrals with lots of teal and just a touch or red accent. i have to have a red in almost everything i do.
bakery science

then there's the warmer, earthier approach:
bakery science 2

and here's one from a while back, just for fun. ;)

My favorite food colors -- chocolate and mint:
Mint Surprise Cookie
And I think this palette, by katemess, would be wonderful in a bakery:
Pick me up and run

Amaranthine

ooo I'd love to see a cheery bakery in the colors similar to lizcrimson's "science palettes" those are beautiful! I especially love the first one. but then.. when I think about it the second would probably be more appropriate for a bakery since it will be catering to both males and females and it would be something that would appeal to both instead of the more females like the first would. & it feels so warm; just like a bakery :D
bakery science 2

good luck with your place & congrats! I wish you lots of happy customers :D
I know I'm hungry already just reading about the things served ^^
