Rather have a bit more color in your space? Well this is the perfect trio, navy blue, yellow ochre, and crisp white. The blue and yellow shades and complimentary to each other but both are rich and deep, which is where the white comes into play. The white allows the deep colors to still work together in the space by breaking up the colors throughout the kitchen. This is an inviting space because of its richness but isn’t too overwhelming because the lightness of the white.

Crisp, clean, and invigorating, this kitchen reminds us of the Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery. Inspired by natures color, this white, light-green, and bamboo colored kitchen feels fresh and inviting. The white and green cabinets keep the space looking open and airy. The natural sunlight really brings out the beauty in these hues, but also becomes a warm charming space by evening.

“I absolutely love the style of this kitchen mainly because it embodies many of my favourite design elements. I am a huge fan of the two toned colours used on the cabinetry as this allows for depth but also adds brightness to the space. I particularly love the brass accents which contrast the classic styled cabinetry, balancing old and new. The mix of natural materials used to finish off this kitchen like white marble countertops, wooden objects (stools & cutting boards) and the copper canisters turn this kitchen into a clean and contemporary space with an organic feel!”
