Pristine. Classic. Fresh. Timeless. Color trend with traction. It seems the love affair between kitchen design and decorating and the very right of the white kitchen (or nearly all-white kitchen) is going stronger than ever.

Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2016 Simply White is simply an excellent choice for your anchor, primary or accent kitchen color consideration.
Choosing to go with a white or nearly all-white kitchen is by no means a color sellout. A white kitchen is anything but boring, uninspiring or underwhelming.
The color white in company of designer, winter, off and ivory shades and tones invariably makes a lasting color impression. Let it capture the life and the heartbeat of the space.
Immersed in natural light from floor to ceiling, the kitchen in this historic Livingston, New York, home features antique architectural elements. The kitchen cabinets are fashioned from antique windows, and the well placed pendant lights, center island lantern and black and white tile flooring only serves to further enhance the predominately white color palette. Unpretentious in design, this white hot kitchen is farmhouse fabulous on steroids.
Highlighting the effectiveness of natural light coupled with distinctive Louisiana architectural elements, this kitchen-dining space combination becomes the design feature of this custom home from award winning St. Tammany, Louisiana Highland Homes. The rich natural accent colors present in the decorative wood beams and flooring play well to the white countertops, striking center island chandelier, kitchen cabinetry and custom range hood.
No natural light to be found? Fret not.
Gorgeous kitchen lighting options in white will infuse the white kitchen with light and style in white hot color palette perfection.
When selecting kitchen materials, the color white continues to dominate the field. Feast your eyes upon the examples below. Gorgeous, gorgeous, and did I mention gorgeous?
A hand-glazed white ceramic subway tile backsplash brilliantly paired with Carrara marble makes a striking decor follow-through.
White ironstone china stands out from the gallery wall in decorative sync with the herringbone pattern reclaimed elm hardwood floors.
Complementing colors and accents come together to produce a stellar focal point while supplying all the contrast needed to make a bright and bold, white hot white kitchen statement.
I’ve looked at well over sixty pictures for this post, and this one from Apartment Therapy never fails to impress. I love the clean lines and distinctive design. The theory of less is more applies here.
Size does matter, but it is not always the design feature afforded the space. The kitchen in this New York studio apartment demonstrates how proper design can result in optimization of space and function. Big or small, that is the desired design result of today’s working kitchen. The custom cabinetry is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Dove Wing.
It may only be the base on which you build your color palette, but the color white commands and keeps the attention of a space. It is the neutral of choice.
“White has stood the test of time because it’s clean and fresh. And those two words — clean and fresh — are classic words for describing a great kitchen. There isn’t a better way to approach design.”
Mick de Giulio
