Inspiration for my palette:
I was redoing my kitchen and I wanted to be courageous in my color choice for my cabinets. I didn't want to do the cream/white thing. I was SO NERVOUS about choosing an actual color that wouldn't become passé in a couple of years. And I guess my cabinetmaker was nervous too because he made me approve the color 3 TIMES! That factor made me even more nervous! I kept thinking, "Has no one ever chosen green for a cabinet color before?! GEEZ!!" And once I gave that final okay, there was no going back! (I was kind of terrified, I'm not gonna lie! LOL)
Colors used in my room
Sage Green, Warm Beige, Cream, Black
Tips for using color successfully
What helped me choose this cabinet color was finding a similar photo of some kitchen cabinets in a magazine photo in the same color I was considering. I took out that photo and looked at it for a few minutes EVERY DAY, for about 3 months in a row. Not. Kidding. After 3 months, I figured if I still loved the green cabinets in that photo, I could be pretty confident that I would love my own for a long time to come. Fast forward 6 years, and I still do! I absolutely LOVE them as much as I did from the first day I saw them! I wouldn't change a thing! Mission accomplished!
