Painted Cabinetry: Colors on Kitchen, Pantry and Bathroom Cabinets!

I’ve always been a fan of plain white cabinets, but cabinets painted in rich hues are all the rage right now!


If there’s a color you love, why not bring it into your cabinets and woodwork? Here are some color palettes that I like:

This butler’s pantry in grey with wood countertops and old-fashioned library inspired hardware has that farmhouse appeal!  I really like it styled with the white Martha-Stewart-esque tableware:


This powder blue kitchen is to die for!  I love the bead board ceiling, marble backsplash and countertop and the black stove with copper accessories.  What a fun color combination!  I am not crazy about the lighting fixture, but everything else works!

This kitchen has deep blue cabinets, library lights over the sink, open shelving with stacked plates and brass hardware for warmth. The oriental rug inspired runner warms up the space as well!  It gives it a cozy, worn feel.
