Beautiful Kitchens & Baths magazine featured four “no-fail” color palettes from Karen Williams in its Winter issue including this Retro Urban palette she devised for her own compact Manhattan kitchen. The designer combined powder-coated steel mint green cabinets with fumed oak cabinets, polished chrome hardware, and satin and glossy white mosaic tile.
“The metal cabinetry gives it a retro vibe, and the fumed oak adds the look of mink that blends with the wood herringbone floor,” Williams told the magazine. “The mixed colors are muted and work in a relatively small space, and we kept the hardware intentionally simple. The backsplash adds sparkle. It’s fun, young, urban and very tactile.”
