Typically considered a cool color, gray cabinets call to mind the frosty skies of November days. Copper pendant lights and a hardwood floor add warmth while a black stove lends a touch of drama.
White and painted cabinets are still common, but wood finishes are re-surging in popularity and add warmth to an earthy kitchen.
Black or dark gray cabinets create a warm, dramatic kitchen space. I find myself gravitating more and more to moodier rooms like this one.
To create an earthy kitchen with organic flair, add natural elements like a rustic wooden kitchen island or a pretty copper back splash.

And don’t feel like you can’t use white cabinets in a rustic earthy kitchen. Opt for your favorite creamy shade of white!
