Why Does This Kitchen Make me Want An Oreo?
It’s probably the tasty way she matched up the colors. (sorry, we had to say it). I mean, what a bold move but, it really works.
Ebony Black is a Classic Color
The Crystal White cabinets with pewter glaze are bright and beautiful. The gray and cocoa granite pulls the room together. The contrasting dark wood floor grounds the room, creating a backdrop for the lighter cabinetry. However, it’s the richness of the black island that’s the focal point here. They say every room should have one piece of black. The Ebony Black, mitered doors are classically styled and the way they showcase the homeowner’s collectibles behind glass fronts (while daring with 3 small kids), is really the ‘show stopper’ here.
Countertops and Backsplash Should Not be an Afterthought
Granite countertops, if cared for properly, will stand the test of time. This swirling color scheme of the granite has every color in the room, even the chocolate brown from the floors. When you are pondering your new kitchen’s design, think about every element.
The backsplash and countertops are where the ‘multi-colors’ will tie the room together and button things up in terms of design. Don’t let the backsplash be an afterthought; it’s the last piece of the puzzle and a very important one.
The backsplash color should be a minimal color found in the countertop, more so than the cabinets. In terms of this back splash color, the off white shade carries through in the countertops. Lay pieces of your backsplash samples on the countertop sample until one of the smallest amount of shades pops out. If it’s in there, it will come out. This is vital for creating a marriage and completing your kitchen’s color palette.
Your New Kitchen Should be Something You Always Wanted
Don’t be afraid to try something daring. Be bold, make it beautiful, make it something you ‘always wanted’. Then go have an Oreo cookie.
