When I become enamored of something, I tend to get very one-track minded, sometimes, without even realizing. This is one of those times. Over the past several weeks, I’ve mindlessly Pinned, bookmarked and regrammed a hefty helping of kitchens with one thing in common: they all sported the same shade of dark teal, and only when I looked back at my Pin boards when on the hunt for a dinner recipe did I notice what I had done. Consider me obsessed.

This rich, luxurious peacock-y hue is that happy place between navy and hunter green, which works great for me, because I often find myself between a rock and a hard place when trying to decide on which hue I prefer.

This one (above) might be one of my favorites from this whole roundup, by Amber Interiors. I love that this delicious color is paired with matte black hardware, a vintage runner and a polished brass faucet. The rustic floors and open shelving keep everything very grounded.

Here are a handful more kitchens that have me seriously craving dark teal cabinets.

This petite kitchen in Oslo, Norway, (from Bonytt) combats gloomy Nordic winters with happy colored cabinetry. It also is a great example of how you don’t need much space to make a huge impact.

From La Bici Azul, this Madrid space is proof that dark bottom cabinetry + white uppers + white (subway) backsplash is a kitchen design recipe for incredible success.

This space from design firm Massucco Warner Miller may be dream kitchen status, but I’m sure the elements would look just as lovely (if not maybe even more surprising) in a much more humble, everyday kitchen.

A scallop texture on upper cabinetry break up the heavy color story of this amazing kitchen from Metro Mode. Plus, that brass kick plate is #kitchengoals.

This kitchen from The Style Files inspires me to rip off most of my cabinet doors and just paint the cabinet trim and interior a jaw-dropping shade of deep teal.
