SA: Essentials: Color


Frequently overdone, kitchen colors are best kept fresh, simple, and timeless. When considering your palette options, begin with the known elements in the design. "An old beam or a stone countertop can be a great starting point for color selections. This approach helps create a cohesive aesthetic," says Pursley. Here are our picks in kitchen color:

Chinese lacquer red: It's prized for its drama and ability to dress a room.
Slate blue: This hue is beloved for its coolness and neutrality in a room filled with stainless steel and stone.
Any creamy white: We love its timelessness, openness, serenity, and cleanliness.
Ocher yellow: It's natural and inviting in a room outfitted with high technology.
