Kitchen Trends: Hottest Color Combos

Time to liven up the hearth with new hues. Check out some of our favorite pairings.

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

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.
