Gray Painted Island

Is your kitchen white, bland and boring? Updating hardware can help and give it an instant facelift, but so can painting out your kitchen island in a gray tone. You probably notice it happening a lot in kitchen design these days, because it really does add a lot of style to a kitchen.Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 3.39.37 AMTry CSP-45 Street Chic by Benjamin Moore

The Victorian also has a gray island in the kitchen, that contrast with the stark white wall cabinets. The gray exterior paint, and the island paint are the same color: C2's  Titanium, but with different percentages.

Light Gray Flooring

With Benjamin Moore’s OC-117 Simple White as Benjamin Moore’s colour of 2016, it’s no surprise that it looks so good with light gray flooring.

This sample from Floortrends really is a new type of look for the future of design, more casual, with an oil rubbed finish. No stain and re-finish required, just a coal of oil and this floor can withstand heavy traffic.  Going lighter and with a matte finish, allows you to hide anything.

Below are a few examples pairing white and light gray, we will be seeing a whole lot more of this look in the next few years. Dark flooring has been trendy for years, but they show every scrath or piece of dog/cat fur or dust.

We love the idea of painting out all of the wood panelling the same colour as kitchen cupboards (although in a different paint finish).

We love this cool gray colour 2127-40 Wolf Gray, it really makes a small space feel larger.

Framing out a wall or old doorway and painting the background HC-143 Wythe blue by Benjamin Moore, genius.
