Today’s kitchen tour proves that green is the new neutral! Gray-green kitchen cabinets create the backdrop in this gorgeous makeover design by Linette Dai Design. I truly love everything about this space, and it’s no surprise that it was featured in Sunset Magazine earlier this year.
The large kitchen island has ample room for both seating and storage, and is given aesthetic appeal through the custom millwork and brushed gold hardware. The island features a glass-doored nook for cookbooks, arched legs, and outlets in the event an appliance needs to be plugged in. An elegant, shaded pendant light illuminates the island. Woven bar stools add a touch of texture and organic ambience to the room.
The gray-green kitchen cabinets were paneled before being painted with Pigeon Gray (a beautifully soft shade of gray-green) by Farrow and Ball and topped with a dark counter. A woven linen-blend fabric is used for the window shades and textured kitchen tile completes the look.
For eat-in dining, a velvety built-in banquette incorporates drawers below for extra storage. A round table softens the straight lines in the room while rattan chairs keep the textured theme going. Floating shelves lend a feeling of openness.
Floor-to-ceiling pantries are a wonderful addition and I can’t imagine running out of storage room in this gray-green kitchen. The light wood flooring is the perfect complement to the hue of the cabinets.
To add a little contrast, the interior of glass-front cabinetry is left a natural wood tone.
Oodles of cabinetry and built-in hutches are ideal for kitchen organization, but you can use economical kitchen cabinet organizers to help get the job done. I’m in the process of decluttering my cabinets and when I’ve removed the unnecessary items, I’m going to invest in some cabinet organizers to help keep everything tidy and convenient.
