Phillip Saul knows a thing or two about men’s fashion. He owns SAULT New England, a lifestyle shop in Boston, and boasts a pretty enviable wardrobe of his own at home. No surprise then that when it came time to make over the kitchen cabinets in his maximalist and masculine apartment, Phillip looked to a popular menswear brand for inspiration.

Inspired by the Jack Spade Dipped Coal Bag (above, $198), Phillip chose to give his kitchen a similarly two-tone paint job. The line was drawn somewhere near eye level, with Benjamin Moore Winter Orchard on top and an olive shade from BEHR on bottom. The “dipped” paint wraps inside of the open cabinets on one side of the kitchen, too, creating an interesting backdrop for the dishware inside.
