Go Grey
Gray paint is an elegant option for kitchens; not too dark, not too light... and rich with gravitas. Brighten it with a citrusy yellow, bold blue and crisp white - and to ensure that prep is perfect and the finish is as luxurious as the shade, work with a painting pro.

Refined Rustic Style is a Timeless Trend
This kitchen features custom cabinetry in a transitional style with Caesarstone Bianco Drift counter tops on the perimeter and a custom fabricated walnut top on the island. The backsplash is large white subway tile with accent tile at the range top. The appliances are Thermador and the Brizo plumbing fixtures as well as the cabinet hardware are in a polished nickel finish. Porcelain tile was the choice over traditional wood flooring, so Acacia Valley was used to complement the white cabinetry. Benjamin Moore paint in Revere Pewter was used on the walls. Design, fabrication and installation was performed by Woodward Kitchen and Bath. 251-3865

Let there be (Off)-White
One emerging trend for 2016 is what some would call a colorless color: white or, more specifically, shades of off white, like Sherwin Williams' off-white color "Alabaster." It was also named by Houzz as one of the top trend colors for 2016. Clients love it because it helps blend in their design without being too bland. Pros love it because of the paint quality and how it applies and dries. This neutral white doesn't veer too far to the warm or cool side and pairs nicely with pretty much any other color.

The DIY Trend has Never been Easier
Chalk Paint is Annie Sloan paint that was developed 25 years ago. It is not simply paint with chalk added to it, as some presume. Chalk Paint is the unique decorative paint Annie Sloan developed for furniture, floors and walls. Chalk Paint adheres to most surfaces and creates gorgeous results quickly and easily. It is non-toxic, water-based paint and odor free. The possibilities are endless; it sticks to just about any surface - wood, concrete, metal, varnished or painted surfaces and more - with no priming or sanding required. Use its companion product Clear Soft Wax by Annie Sloan for a durable finish or the Dark Soft Wax for a decorative age and patina.

The kitchen pictured here was painted with Paris Grey and Old White. Soft Wax Clear and Dark were used to add protection and give a hand-rendered high-quality finish. A favorite reason for using this amazing paint is the ease of use; it's freeing to know that you don't have to worry about what your project is already painted with! That's why it's a top choice for DIY updating of kitchen cabinets.

Choose a White Backdrop to make Colors Pop
Do you remember in school when people said "white isn't really a color?" Well the pros at Rebecca Rollins Interiors (RRI) beg to differ: White is the color these days, as you can see in this photo from a recent kitchen refurb. When paired with the exquisite dark quartz countertop and darker grout lines, the herringbone white subway tile backsplash and these beautiful white cabinets are flawless additions. The fixtures become eye candy! Just the right amount of color and a pinch of perfection - that's the power of white! Let RRI make your kitchen dreams come true so your design is "perfectly yours." 367-4394
