Grey and Brown
While brown has been the favorite go-to shade during the past few years, its fellow neutral gray is starting to take center stage. Designer Lori Dennis combines both shades in this modern kitchen for stunning yet subtle look.
Green and Silver
Green may have taken over the nation in its eco-friendly form, but the color green is still going strong. For this kitchen, designer Beth Haley pairs a green glass tile backsplash and cabinetry with stainless-steel appliances and hardware.
Red and White
Known as the color to stimulate appetite, red remains one of the top shades for the kitchen. Designer Andreas Charalambous uses a bold red wall color to contrast with the stark white cabinets in this Asian kitchen design.
Blue and Black
Blue is one of the most soothing shades, so if you tend to get stressed in the kitchen, blue might be the perfect choice to center your cooking skills again. For this country kitchen, designer Candice Olson pairs slate-blue cabinetry with black countertops and simple silver hardware.
Jewel tones, like the ones in designer Ammie Kim's backsplash, really pop when paired with dark cabinetry. She also uses straight lines in her cabinets and furniture to futher enhance the colors and create a clean atmosphere in this kitchen.
Black and White
Black and white will always remain a favorite pairing. For this kitchen, designer Erin Valencich highlights her black cabinetry with sleek, stainless-steel hardware and a crisp white countertop.
