Gray and cream is such a soothing color combination in the kitchen. Do you love it, too? If so, I have five lovely kitchens to share with you, plus a tip from a friend on the perfect off-white paint color to get this subtle, sophisticated look.

The color is Benjamin Moore’s Moonlight White. When the time came to paint, a friend recommended we go with Benjamin Moore’s Moonlight White because it goes well with both grey and bright colors. When I imagine pairing this color with a soft gray kitchen cabinet, I can already visualize how well the two will work together. With a few pops of color (as in the first example above), Moonlight White will serve as a great backdrop to gray cabinets.

While I don’t have an exact gray selected, I have paired this white with Benjamin Moore’s Iron Mountain in other rooms with great success.

What do you think about serenity in the kitchen created by the color combination of gray and ivory? Is this a match made in heaven for you, too, or do you prefer your kitchen to have a bit more pep?
