Fresh Greens

This kitchen's unique use of color is both unexpected and elegant. The fresh green island extends to the chair upholstery and window coverings. One of the unique features of this kitchen is its honeycomb-like coffered ceiling. The main room begs for a crowd with lots of seating choices and a whimsical color palette.

Blue Transitional Kitchen With Sunflowers

Mornings must be fun in this cheery blue transitional kitchen. A long island offers up lots of room for casual dining and hanging out while a vaulted ceiling adds to the open airy feel.

Peacock Hues

A unique peacock feather painted on the ceiling sets the color scheme for this transitional kitchen. The pretty blues of the mural are reflected in the soft wall color and seating, and bursts of orange are found scattered throughout the space. All of the colors are effectively pulled together in the tiled floor and artwork. Design by Ken Kelly

Modern Aubergine

Even the slightest touch of color can make a bold statement. Dark wood cabinetry is toned down by the pale-green glass backsplash and the white granite countertops. Lavender chairs and a flowing violet flower arrangement deliver a lively touch of color to this modern kitchen. Design by Daniel Bodenmiller

Crisp Orange

A gorgeous burnt orange adds warmth to this modern kitchen. With crisp stainless steel countertops and white lacquered cabinetry, walnut floors, orange seating and a focal point wall of natural stone balance the modern, sleek look of the kitchen. Design by Andreea Avram Rusu

Glamorous Blues

Solid white walls provide a perfect backdrop for vibrant royal-blue cabinets. Strands of blue are also seen through the Azul Macubas granite countertops. Touches of glamour are in the hanging quartz light fixtures that separate the rich blue from the connected golden-yellow dining area. Design by Alia Meyer

Playful Custom Color Cabinets

Custom color cabinets, reclaimed wood shelving, smoked glass uppers, matte black and brass finishes, and postmodern pops make this space completely unique. It's a fun space that's meant to be fresh, inviting, and playful without sacrificing any amenity!

Retro Twist

Jaymes Richardson's design took this 1920s cottage and gave it a modern twist through use of color, eclectic furnishings and updated cabinetry. Bright coral chandeliers and matching chairs are the primary focal point of the kitchen, and a green tile backsplash complements the mostly black and white space.

Colorful Kitchen With Oval Island

It may be by far the most common kitchen island shape, but the rectangle isn’t your only option. Angled and even curved designs can work better in your space, like this stunning oval designed by Anthony Baratta. The oblong island, which mirrors the shape of the recessed ceiling, is a custom design built in English sycamore wood, with a Pyrolave countertop in a custom lime color and reverse-painted glass door panels.

Red Statement

This contemporary kitchen's red walls create a bold color statement. Covered with an ultra-sleek glass backsplash, the walls reflect the shiny lacquer of the white cabinets. Accessories and decor are kept to a minimum, allowing the red wall to be the ultimate focal point. Design by Andreas Charalambous

Old English Pinks

Touches of Old English decor give a formal feel to this traditional pink and gold kitchen featuring a white, hand-carved mantelpiece. The pink stool cushions reflect the soft colors of the floral wallpaper. An ornate crystal chandelier reflects the elegance and unique use of color in the space. Design by Dave Stimmel

Open Concept Transitional Kitchen

Vaulted ceilings give an open, airy feel to this neutral transitional kitchen. A peacock blue kitchen island serves as the statement piece. Silver barstools with leather seats contrast with the light colored walls and cabinets.
