chelsea gray in the kitchen

Tia Zoldan's awesome kitchen in

I am so doing this -  painting my kitchen door gray. Doesn't it just make this kitchen? try to imagine it white...just not the same.

I'll be getting a new french door in my kitchen soon. I'm thinking:

Love this idea! We have an old wood door coming in from our patio, and I have been wondering what to paint it for quite awhile!!! Great choice!

Meera @ firstsense said...

I love that kitchen! The grey door looks gorgeous and how fantastic is that rug!

Adore the chelsea gray colour - I've just painted the woodwork in my stairway a similar shade :)

Ahhhh! I love the door and basically the entire room! Makes me want to paint my cabinets. There is so much depth to this room. I say go for it!

Yes - that door definitely anchors the space. I'm sure it will look fabulous- hopefully you'll take a shot!

Simple Dwellings said...

Beautiful color! I agree- it makes the room! Go with chelsea gray- it's perfection! Happy Friday. :)

ooooh, very nice!!

Brandi said...

I'm also really loving this trend of rugs in the kitchen. Feels so cozy and well worn!

ticklishfromadistance said...

Love it. Great color!

lisaroyhandbags said...

I agree - I saw that kitchen and thought the same thing. My front door is that same grey and is open to our kitchen area. I think I'll paint the back of it grey as well instead of leaving it white. :)

You're right the door totally makes it........!Happy painting!Maryanne

You go girl!!!

brock street said...

yes, yes, yes. if afterward your not loving it, try another til you find the perfect color fit.
i do have to say i love this color. we have still not painted the floors in the cabin (trying to match the jcrew bag), but i think i might be in deep like with this color.
its like a valentines gift :)

Teresa said...

this made me think if i had a door i could paint, and i remembered that i already did! the inside of my front door is gray. it's lovely, esp since the front entry opens up to the great room. white would have been so predictable.

Poet Whale said...

Go fo it!

Laughing, I have a paint swatch taped to the bureau I want to paint gray.

My House, My Garden said...

I am SO WANTING to paint my interior doors black. I am scared for some unknown reason -- it's just paint! If you do it, I'll do it! :)

courteneykay said...

can't wait to see it!!

d. reyné said...

I love this shade of gray! Not too cold and not too warm!
I think grey doors are wonderful!
I actually painted mine for Christmas a shade of gray! But I don't think the light is right for the color I chose! Oh well!
Love the idea though!
I can't wait to see the end result!
Have a wonderful weekend
Hugs,
Donna

Mona Thompson said...

Absolutely do it. Completely changes the space. Adds an architectural feeling or more importance to the door similar to painting it black, which I love as well. Chelsea gray looks perfect.

Lovely, I am dying to paint out my wooden interior doors, what do you think if doing so in old houses? Ours us 1870's. I just don't like dark wood

SHERRY HART said...

Rosie said...

I adore what you've done here. I wish I found your blog earlier. I bought 24 tester pots of grey paints for lounge and settled on Pavillion Grey, Farrow and Ball. http://endofterracehouse.blogspot.com/2010/12/paint-pots.html

Chelsea Grey looks fab.

Love it!!! How could *you not* have a gray french door?! It would be perfect! Love the Chelsea Gray too...we're still looking for a gray for our fireplace wall and this looks promising. Such a tough color isn't it?!
xoxo J~

24 Corners said...

Oh...and those light fixtures have been on my wish list for years...I have no idea where I'd put them but they've been such a favorite...love them, and they look fabulous in this kitchen! J~

Tia Zoldan said...

You are awesome! I used all Farrow and Ball's colors. Hardwick white for the walls and for the door I used Railings. I also have some accents in the kitchen (around the windows) where I used Down Pipe.
Your blog is fantastic!
much love,
Tia

The grey door definitely makes the room, and I think is an excellent accent. Good luck!

Now you have to do it with over 50 of us supporting you! Can't wait to see the After. Tia's painted door and new lighting make the room.
