Contrasting Cabinets

"The dark cabinets are a knotty pine stained to match the aged, existing knotty pine used throughout the rest of the home. The lighter cabinets are painted in a custom off-white lacquer and aged slightly with a bit of glaze. The interior of the off-white cabinets is painted a light sage green-the same as some of the glass-fronted darker cabinets. The sage green interiors tie the two areas together, as do the similar door styles and the same simple pewter-like knobs and twisted handles.

 

"At the same time, we wanted the off-white space to serve as a transition from the kitchen to the adjacent dining area. The contrast in the cabinet colors serves this purpose and also helps separate the off-white area's function as a butler pantry and sitting room."
