Amazing Home Makeovers
Color in the Kitchen
White cabinets may be all the rage, but as these nine kitchens prove, there are other options. Update your look with a little -- or a lot of -- color.
Balance and Contrast
A sturdy, sage-green island contrasts with warm ivory walls and cabinetry in this light-filled kitchen. A stainless steel range occupies a tiled alcove with an arched hood, while dark marble counters provide a unifying work surface. Rustic barstools, antiqued light fixtures, and rough-hewn ceiling beams contribute additional texture.
