Our Kitchen Cabinets Color-Matched

By House*Tweaking on Aug 22, 2012

I’ve had numerous requests for paint colors that are similar to our kitchen cabinets.

I finally grabbed a bunch of swatches the last time I was at Home Depot. I held up the swatches against the lower black and upper white cabinets to find swatches that ‘disappeared’ into the cabinetry for a match.

Even though I picked swatches from all different brands at Home Depot, I found matches for the white and black cabinets within the Martha Stewart Living line. Popcorn {MSL254} is a match for the upper white cabinets and Silhouette {MSL280} is a match for the lower black cabinets and island. I’ve heard through the grapevine that Home Depot is discontinuing Martha Stewart paints but will still have Martha Stewart swatches available for color-matching in the Glidden or Behr paints.

If you’re liking the two-tone kitchen craze that’s sweeping the design field right now, put these two colors in your inspiration folder. What other paint colors have you seen paired together successfully in two-tone kitchens?
