Color Inspiration: Gray In the Kitchen

Right now gray seems to be the hottest color, from bedrooms to bathrooms, we can't seem to get enough. It's calming and moody, and can be used as a neutral or for drama. Gray's versatility and universal appeal make it the color of the moment and a perfect choice for a kitchen makeover.
Gray floor to ceiling cabinetry wrap this kitchen up in a cozy cloak of warmth.
A simple gray island in the middle is just enough to turn up the color appeal in this space.
Gray mixed with whites and woods, arches and doorways, makes for a beautiful weathered look.

I'm loving gray in home decor now. That and the light blues. I wish I could mix gray in my home decor but it wouldn't look right. :( When I can redo everything I'm going to go for light blue and gray tones. Thanks for sharing.

gray is one of my forever favorites. i hadn't thought of using it in a kitchen but it really works well in virtually any room.

Adore this look for kitchens, very chic. The grays look amazing with SS and the marble, but also the mix of cool and warms makes for some dynamic spaces. Janell

I love grays. When we moved into our home (October will make three years), I had the kitchen painted Bunny Gray (love, love, love this shade of gray). It's calming and chic. Great post!

Grey is so fabulous anywhere! I love slate...we just redid our bathroom and used a slate floor, I'm totally in love!

Grey is definitely up there as one of my favourites! Especially that almost purple-ish, dove grey shade... so soothing and pretty...

The top photo was my inspiration! My husband and I just bought our first house (open concept) and we've gone with a gray theme(various shades) pretty much throughout the entire house and I'm LOVING it!

Gray has been a love of mine for years, it's funny to see it sooo popular now. Both of these rooms are amazing, you always show the best of the best!

I was inspired the other week in a dressing room at abercrombie. Gray painted beadboard chunky crisp white crown molding and base boards with beautiful slate tile floors. So I decided im going to paint my kitchen gray. Thanks for the post! Just made me want to paint even more!

I love gray walls! We painted our whole interior gray. Kitchen, family room, bedrooms, etc. It's much warmer than plain white and makes a nice blank canvas for art work, photos and furniture. I have some interior pics posted on my blog of our kitchen, family room and entryway-ALL GRAY!

Wow. Love all those kitchens. I'm pretty sure I already have the first image saved but now I need the other two! LOVE grey.

Gorgeous gray!xxx

Happenstance said...

Agreed! I painted one dark gray wall in my kitchen last summer and I love it! Especially against the white of the baseboards.

I will admit I just jumped on the grey train. I'd had the paint for 2 years...now it is all over my bedroom and even my closet doors. Pondering where else I can use it without coming off as moody ;)
