Craftsman Kitchen With Red Wood Cabinets and Green Subway Tile Backsplash
New cabinetry, countertops and a green subway tile backsplash turn this Craftsman-style kitchen into a 21st-century treasure. Existing saltillo tile flooring ties in with the red tones in the cabinetry, while the apple green tile complements it.
This year designer Tiffany Brooks used framed art on the backsplash behind the five-burner cooktop. “I wanted to add humor, place art where it’s not expected, and also make the kitchen less serious,” says designer Tiffany Brooks. “The art solved all of this.”
After giving thought to the cabinets' exterior, turn some attention to their intended use and interior features. "It used to be that we would place cabinetry in the room and make it functional," says Al. "Now every cabinet has a purpose." There are pullout drawers for pots and pans, oversize drawers for baking sheets and even high-tech under-counter cooling drawers that keep beverages and snacks within easy reach. Accessories like lazy Susans, built-in spice racks, drawer organizers and other cabinet extras make the kitchen a much more efficient and enjoyable place. Photo courtesy of GE Monogram

Cool slate grays anchor this kitchen by Susan Diana Harris, ASID, while brighter greens steal the show both indoors and out. The walls are painted Behr's Fresh Grass (color #426), and the ceiling is Benjamin Moore's Pale Vista (2029-60). The windows (not shown) were left unobstructed to allow for views of the leafy garden outside. If your own kitchen is graced with garden views, remember that your choice of plantings will affect the color experience when you are indoors.
