Last year I declared white kitchens are out for 2018. I’m finally ready to accept my own advice, and have reconsidered my age-old commitment to the white kitchen. It hasn’t been easy, but a happy deluge of multicolored and colorful kitchen pins have cushioned my fall from white – and today I’m going to share these game-changing spaces with you.


Here are five statement kitchens making the case for color.

Baby Blues

As we’ve said before, blue is not just a color for boys’ rooms.

Here, a punchy cornflower eggshell blue works to add a splash of contemporary cool into this rustic farmhouse kitchen. Metallic silver gray is a fantastic complementary color choice, really helping to accentuate the cool tones of the bold azure.

I especially like how designer Elizabeth Roberts has added wooden design accents into the mix, keeping the overall aesthetic warm and inviting. The kitchen is the heart of the home after all.

Tickled Pink

As far as I’m concerned, if I’m not going to have a white kitchen then I may as well go all out with a hot pink option instead.

Although the wall color screams exuberance, the earthy – almost industrial – concrete counter top grounds the space, adding a touch of bohemian grace to the aesthetic.

Green With Envy

While bright colors can be great for introducing fun and whimsy to a room, darker hues with tonal depth are just the thing for glamour and sophistication.

Take this stunning emerald green beauty as a case in point. Located in the Hollywood Hills, it was only fitting for designer Caitlin Murray to channel old school Hollywood glamour in this design.

Opulent gold toned hardware, lavish black marble and Art Deco-inspired accessories complete the look.

A Splash Of Orange

Orange isn’t the easiest of the rainbow’s hues to work with, but when it does work, boy are you in for a real treat.

Charming and cheerful in equal measure, orange is the epitome of joy bundled into color. To make it work in an interior space, opt for an orange with deeper terracotta undertones. This will ensure your home errs on the side of earthy bohemian chic as opposed to gaudy 80s nostalgia.


Made You Blush

Even if you’re a minimalist at heart, a colorful kitchen can still work for you.

In this striking Spanish home, the kitchen sits pretty in pastel, straddling the line between minimalist white and vibrant brights.

Adding a healthy dose of white to your color palette will ensure that fresh crisp aesthetic so beloved my minimalists the world over. Just be mindful to stick to a few key complementary hues so as not to overwhelm the look.
