Friday delights: charcoal gray cabinets



House and Garden




We had dinner at a friend's house last weekend. When I walked into the kitchen, I saw charcoal gray cabinetry.

If you have ever considered going that color, trust me...

 You need to go there.... 

Happy weekend, my friends...!

OH love that! I am constantly going back and forth from white to gray... I can never decide! Love that last one... lately I am seeing brushed brass or copper pulls everywhere! I am loving it... reminds me of jewelry....

Have a great weekend!

Any suggestions Donna?

My son has charcoal gray cabinets and slate counters in his galley kitchen, looks wonderful - but when I tried it in my U-shaped space it was cramped and dark, so sad. So now I am light silver gray with clear blue insides, Fireslate counters, and I love it.

The 3rd kitchen-with the unusual grey/purple haze, is stunning. The orange is amazing, and sheer genius countertops.

If I didn't love my white kitchen so much, I'd definitely be going grey - these are gorgeous :)

I painted the outside
of our door from the
garage charcoal gray
yesterday and I love it!
Imagine it would be
just lovely in the kitchen.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Donna!

That's such a great way to bring in charcoal. Too much and it might look a bit dark but with pale walls..... Perfection!

Gray, white and black combinations are always timeless, in my opinion. Beautiful colors to have for the modern home. And now for that vase of red roses ;)
