As part of our predictions for the trends that will dominate kitchen design in 2017, we're taking a deep dive into the world of color in the kitchen. What to look for: rich, muted hues that add excitement but also sophistication to the kitchen.
I love the look of muted blues, like the two you see paired together on the cabinets and walls of this kitchen from Oslo Design Fair. (The dark floor really helps to ground the space.)
Olive green and hunter green are two colors I predict we'll be seeing a lot of in the new year. Here they are paired together in a space from Naked Kitchens.
