Too much brown feels dated, too much gray feels cold. So how about mixing the two together? This kitchen takes neutral to a whole new level.
I can't say that pairing charcoal cabinets with tan countertops (they actually look to be lightly colored butcher block) would be my first choice, but somehow it works here. Shades of brown throughout — the ceiling trim, the dining room table and chairs, the blond herringbone wood floors, the metallic and stone patterned backsplash — tie everything together and keep the room light, but the dark gray makes it work. If the cabinets were also another shade of brown or even white, the space might come off a little too bland. But that charcoal gives the room oomph.
All in all, I think this is really beautiful. What do you think? Would you go for this neutral mix in your kitchen?
