This Takes Guts! Monochromatic Kitchens from Miles Redd

Miles Redd is a decorator known for his brave use of color, often in unexpected places. Take this kitchen: kelly green lacquer from wall to wall, even on the refrigerator (and the roller shade!). We love the cohesiveness it gives a tiny space, and it's not the only example we found. Click below for another all-over-color kitchen. This one is slightly more mellow, with a moody, glossy, midnight blue instead of the bright green. We've contemplated painting our cabinets navy, and this picture makes us want to pull the trigger. The monochromatic look makes a wall full of cabinets feel very streamlined, less bulky. They almost disappear into the room. And masking a big refrigerator by painting it the color of the cabinets is brilliant. Like covering it in a wood panel, which so many people do, but much more modern and cool. We also love how the countertops—stainless steel and (what looks like) a dark grey stone—add some contrast but don't make it two-tone. And by the way, Redd's own kitchen is all black. What do you think? Could you settle on one color to saturate your entire kitchen? What would it be? • See the green kitchen along with other designer kitchens at House Beautiful. • See the blue kitchen in Miles Redd's portfolio. Related: Color Over Your Head!
