Hello! Kelly Eagle here! We see a lot of kitchens around here and in every style you can imagine!
The majority of the kitchens have white cabinets, with fewer having stained wood, but lately I’ve noticed another cabinet finish gaining popularity: greige painted cabinets.
In this month’s Better Homes and Gardens, designer Ann Rae’s kitchen has a perfect example of the color.
She painted her cabinets with Fawn, by Farrow and Ball. The color is a light tan-greige-green that is versatile, fitting into traditional kitchens, country kitchens, and even those with a more modern flair. She noted that she loves how in some lights the color reminds her of stones on the beach, but can also read as pale leaf green.
If you’ve been considering painting your cabinets, but want a color less predictable than white, this may just be the inspiration for you.
Here are couple of other examples I love:
This shade of beige reads a little green, but the color is subtle enough to act as a neutral, yet interesting enough to not need much accessorizing. Crisp white counters and accents modernize and lighten the space.
If you are a bit braver with your color choice, try painting your cabinets a dark greige. Pair dark lower cabinets with light – or white – upper cabinets.
Since these colors are rooted in the most basic of neutrals, accent colors can vary as wide as the rainbow, adding life and excitement to your kitchen.
What about you?
Would you paint your kitchen cabinets anything other than white?
