Having a house full of kids doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice a beautiful kitchen. In fact, style holds a special place in this heart-of-the-home space designed by Katelyn Gilmour of KBG Designs for a 1956 ranch in San Jose, California.
Cornwall Slate SW 9131 (216-C4), which covers most of the kitchen’s cabinets, helps establish the balanced look. “The color has a really beautiful warmth to it,” Gilmour says of the green-gray color. “It’s traditional but very fresh and livable.” A warm custom white paint on the range hood and paneled refrigerator provides the perfect complement. “It’s definitely a warmer white, but it’s still bright,” she says.
Other materials expand upon the palette and include glass mosaic tile on the backsplashes and quartz countertops. Aged wood bead chandeliers add a lightly organic finishing touch to this airy palette. “The house has an earthy kind of coastal feel,” Gilmour says. “And it’s beautifully put together in a very practical way."
A refreshing neutral can create a beautiful airy feeling in the kitchen. Here are our top five Sherwin-Williams color picks:
