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.

  • This gorgeous minimal kitchen is from an apartment for sale by Scandinavian firm Entrance.
  • Blue lowers and white open shelving, spotted on SF Girl by Bay.

  • When I first spotted them, I completely fell in love with these grey kitchens from Karlavagen 76, a luxury apartment building in Stockholm.
  • A seafoamy green and navy blue, all in the same space. Spotted on Desire to Inspire.
  • Sage green is lovely in a small kitchen from Estilos Deco.
