This cheery kids' playroom features sunny yellow walls paired with white wall paneling, a fun green accent strip and tulip wall decals. A pink pretend play kitchen set lines one wall, while a white wooden table and chairs sits at the center of the room.
Part of what makes this kitchen so visually interesting is the way designer Caitlin Murray paired moody black countertops with pastel pink cabinets. The contrast is especially striking when set against the crisp white walls.
Designers set this kitchen stage with a wash of pastels: pink walls and island, gray backsplash, white countertops. Then, for a playful edge, they layered bold pops of color on top; bright rugs, a blue door, pendants in sherbet shades bringing in so much fun.
A light tile backsplash provides striking contrast against the rich wood cabinets in this earth-toned kitchen. Sleek wood shelves set into the cabinetry display decorative accents, bringing personality to the space.
Interior designer Becki Owens chose Shaker-style cabinets for this crisp white kitchen. "The clean, simplistic lines of this style of cabinetry not only stand the test of time, but give your home a fresh, more modern look when paired with a simple backsplash or a mitered-edge counter," she says. "I like to pair Shaker-style cabinetry with white subway tile and natural wood in either open shelving or styled accents on the counters. This combo is always a win. You can switch out your lighting, hardware and accessories over the years to play with the overall look of your space, but these key elements create a foundation that will have your home looking beautiful for years to come."
Long, slender windows frame the corner of this midcentury modern kitchen. Sleek, wooden cabinets feature stainless steel cornered handles and frosted glass accent doors. The neutral color scheme is livened by a simple and tasteful display of matching mauve dishes, tea set, vases and decorative plate.
A white tile backsplash gives beautiful texture to this kitchen design while blending with the white color scheme. A rich wood dining table and chairs compliment the dark hardwood floor grounding the design with a warm tone. The built in storage features glass door cabinets for visible dish display.
Gorgeous pink and orange flower arrangements in silver vases decorate this kitchen table. A set of crystal stemware with a purple-blue etched floral design is woven throughout the setup, while natural light illuminates the space.
Dark gray cabinets are striking in a kitchen, especially when set against a white backsplash with Moroccan-style tile from Walker Zanger. A white quartz-top island surrounded by black Arhaus counter stools also has high-contrast, high-impact style—yet it’s easy to clean after crafting marathons. Above it, Sonal hung two giant lanterns by Savoy House in a finish that plays off the cabinet color.
Bright pink walls set the scene for this modern girl's room. Bold stripes bring a playful and eye-catching focal wall to life behind the bed, while a hanging chair and play table create the perfect space for creativity and fun.
Beautiful dinnerware displayed in glass-front cabinets add color to this classic black-and-white kitchen. An induction cooktop set into the island provides a flush surface for working or cooking. Handmade subway tile adds texture to a simple backsplash.
In this glam kitchen, custom features abound, including a spacious built-in wine cooler and a textured glass backsplash. Glass-front cabinets put drinkware on display, and an elevated glass countertop on the island gives the space an overall modern feel. A rich chocolate brown in the inset ceiling warms and balances the room.
The clean, white cabinets pair with the gray-white marble countertops and white tile backsplash to create a look of sheer elegance and openness in this kitchen. Open shelves are the perfect spot for displaying delicate china, and light pink and fuchsia flowers add a pop of color on the countertop.
A sleek black kitchen faucet makes a stark contrast against the clean white quartz countertops in this bistro-inspired kitchen. White subway tile set with dark grout creates an elegant display in the upper glass cabinets, while clean-lined gray cabinets below add a touch of contemporary.
Designer Rodney Tassistro created this high-end cottage style kitchen featuring solid wood countertops, custom cabinetry and open shelving. Traditional leaded glass cabinet fronts contrast with a very modern polished wooden countertop and backsplash. The diamond pattern inset into the glass cabinet doors adds interest but still keeps the light and airy look of the open shelving on the opposite wall. The space above the cabinetry is a great spot for the homeowners to display favorite pottery and accessories.
