For some time now, white has been the color of choice for kitchen cabinets. I think maybe we got fatigued by all those dark-cherry and oak cabinets in the late 90s and decided to play it safe. But now I'm noticing a new trend, one that I'm really excited about: color, especially in beautiful, cool tones like grey and green and blue, is creeping back into the kitchen.

When I first spotted them, I completely fell in love with these grey kitchens from Karlavagen 76, a luxury apartment building in Stockholm.
