Classic Navy

If blue and white seems too coastal for you, opt for navy. The richer tone is grounding in a kitchen, and it looks amaze with brass hardware.

Paper White

Bring out natural textures with the palest of grays. It’s muted and calm, and on sunny days, it reads as the lightest, palest blue.

Blue Gray

In a room this big, with east and west exposures, all this gray is grounding. It can also change tones a lot depending on lighting, so it’s never boring.

Sunny Yellow

The tile backsplash was the inspiration for the coordinating yellow-glazed walls in a Naples, Florida, kitchen. Red stools make it feel even more vibrant.

Pale Powder

The subtle color in this kitchen brings a coziness to the space, but doesn’t distract from its traditional style. It adds character and a bit of age, it’s easy to live with, and it makes a smooth transition to adjacent rooms.

Pale Pink

Today’s pink kitchen is a little different from the pink kitchens of the past: less candy pink and more pale, muted pink. When paired with modern detailing, as in this kitchen from Dezeen, the look can be very sophisticated.

Black

It seems like every day I see a new black kitchen that I really, really love. Provided your kitchen gets ample natural light, this can be an exciting and dynamic color choice. This kitchen from Bolig pairs black cabinets with a black countertop and black faucet for a modern, sophisticated look, but you can also add elements like subway tile and white marble to keep the look from getting too heavy.
