gray kitchen cabinets


this is definitely the direction I'm going in - whenever the big kitchen re-do day comes. 

gray cabinets. check.
warm woods. check.
calcutta gold countertops. check.
backsplash? still thinking...

I adore this kitchen! The woods and polished silver work so well with the gray.

I featured your blog at stylesson today.

Gorgeous! So warm. If I did a backsplash, it would be light and simple. Wouldn't want to take away from the beauty!

It would be my direction too if I was thinking of making a change. So subtle and restful for a very busy room. XO

When we redid our kitchen about 5 years about, we had the main cabinets done in a white and a side hutch done in Benjamin Moore's Cumulous Cloud 1550. The white cabinets I have to wash down once a week for fingerprints etc. The gray hutch never looks dirty, so it's smart from the house cleaning perspective, too! Just love how the white dishes look in it :) Jen
(and Donna I bought a few pumpkins today with the intention to paint!)

It seems like you Donna all beautiful and warm but it's a pain waiting for that redo day huh? I waited 15 years and not so patiently.

This kitchen is so yummy I want to lick the screen! Oh how Im kicking myself for painting my cabinets black. If I had a "do over" they would soooo be gray!

This is lovely! Definitely a warm gray, especially the wood island. Perfect combination!

Picking the right gray is the real trick, isn't it? I love this kitchen because the gray is so warm and comfortable. It really compliments the warm wood colors, doesn't it? and the sparkle of stainless steel adds just the right counterpoint. Lovely!

Yum yum yum yum yum. I love everything about this kitchen.

It's beautiful! Just the kind of kitchen I too dream of. The cabinets are fantastic. Just perfect really!

Darling, thank you for always being so sweet and supportive. You are a real friend! xx

You were on my mind so much last week as I was hunting for the perfect (Swedish antique) grey. Found it in the end but so wish I could have had you there by my side.

Big hugs to you my dear friend.

xx Charlotta

Donna, I am in the midst of a kitchen reno and am checking off virtually everything on your list:
Warm wood island
Gray glazed cream glass-front perimeter cabinets with gray interiors
Calacotta oro countertops with full height solid slab backsplash
Refrigerator with a glass door
Lots of silver accessories.
The only downside is everything takes forever, and I cannot wait until it is finished.
Best...Victoria

Anyone have any idea what color this actually is in this pic?

We are getting real close for our kitchen re-do _ and our pallet for the family/dining/kitchen is gray/white/ivory/ I really like this one, it is a little "taupe like" _ the shade I am working with.
Please advise as to the make/color name,
Thank you in advance, and for your nice posts! R
