Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
Brown is considered earthy and evocative of the very place where your food comes from the earth, the farm. For those who are neutral-averse, brown almost becomes the New Neutral: safe. Brown lends itself to so many tasty pairings. This kitchen is expertly color-coordinated. The reddish-brown of the walls play well with the darker brown cabinets. Even the kitchen islands green fits into this family.
Take the cafe curtain off the window, add under-cabinet lighting, and paint those oak cabinets glossy white! You can even add a mirror over a window-less sink to bounce the light around. The lighter and brighter your kitchen, the roomier it will feel. So all white is not your thing? No problem — but try to pick a color and stick to it. If your cabinets, walls, and countertops are all varying shades of gray, for example, the space would not feel chopped up by a countertop that is a strong contrast to the woodwork above and below.
