Going Gray Gracefully With Cabinets


Beautiful....I know!

This kitchen belongs to no other than the sweet

Miss Sara.

She is the author of Augustfield 


I just have to be honest here..

I love every inch of her beautiful home!


Sara's kitchen had me dreaming....

a lot!

I love the soothing gray dont you?


I know I just painted my white cabinets not long ago...

but wouldn't gray cabinets be so forgiving?


If I could just package up her style and go with it I would.

I'm thinking maybe I could get away with paint...

It's pretty inexpensive right?

Ohhhh but her counter tops....

Hello!
(dont think I can get these just yet but a girl can dream) right?


Sara shared with us that her inspiration came from the photo below.

This kitchen belongs to Sally Wheat.

Both Sara and Sally painted their cabinets

Benjamin Moore Fieldstone!

love it~


So are you loving gray now?

I know I am!

Want to see a little more?

How about a peek into Martha Stewarts kitchen?


More wonderful gray!


Martha's gray is

Bedford Gray MSL246


You can find her paint at Home Depot


Look how Martha's white pottery just pop's here.


This color works well with stainless too!

So today I visited two stores.
Picked up two paint swatches

Fieldstone and Bedford.

Why oh why do I do this to myself...Ha!

For now I will just dream about those beautiful kitchens...

My husband...I bet he will be dreaming about the normal wife he wished he had...Ha!

  1. Simply, beautifully, gorgeous! I have been looking for a paint color for my bathroom cabinets and didn't want more cream, but something with a little color. I think I will go grey! Thanks so the inspiration Susie!

  2. Love the gray, but I must admit, your title had me thinking I was going to read about the to-color-or-not-to-color that gray hair dilemma that plagues so many. I'm fastly approaching a decision here. :)

  3. So tell me what you think - I love the brown floors, the grey cabinets...what color of carpet would you put into a large family room right next to that (think basement/Utah/cold winter so I can't do all hardwood everywhere!)

    I'm picking colors right now and you've got me thinking I need to make some changes already!

  7. Susie,
    You had me laughing...then drooling. Ha! when i first read your blog post title I thought you were talking about your hair...then I read on and saw the pictures. All the kitchens you posted are beautiful. I just love that white subway tile and the gray really does make the kitchen look lovely.
    Happy painting!

  8. I'm LOVING GRAY right now too...not the ones that my sister points out when she's "accenting" my hair with low lights and high lights, but the other ones...like the gorgeous ones you showed! In FACT we just bought 3 gallons of gray paint for our masterbedroom! YEEEEHAAAAA!

  10. Gray looks good everywhere except on your head!!! I think gray is becoming a classic, like black and white.
    Great pictures.

  11. Hi Susie! I saw your blog and title from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia and I had to come see you! I just went to Home Depot yesterday and picked up some color samples to paint my cabinets! I choose a gray green and I am loving it so far! My husband thinks that I am crazy because I have changed the color of our kitchen so may times! :) It is a big project but what else is there to do!! :)
    I am following you now, you have a beautiful blog and shop!!!

    Shelia ;)

  13. I like the grey but I'm not sure about it next to the wood floors. I have wood in one half of kitchen and dark black and brown fieldstone in another (tarkett really but it LOOKS like fieldstone) and I'm not sure the grey would look right in here.

  14. Simply gorgeous! I had always thought I wanted to paint my cabinets a taupe but this gray is looking mighty good. I just feel guilty because my cabinets are in great condition and a beautiful wood but I am hankering for painted cabinets. Dilemmas.

  19. This is kind of funny. I was just catching up on my blogs via feedly.com (love it). Here, http://www.uniqueprop.com/index.htm , Joni, Cote de Texas, just did a post about gray being such a forerunner in homes right now. I am on board with it. It's such a great neutral that can be "perked" up if needed or just calm as well.

  20. Wow! Gorgeous!!! I'm on my way to look at her blog!

  24. I love them both. I am not kidding you when I say I was just looking at Martha's Kitchen from he Sept. 2006 Magazine. Yes, her kitchen was done 4 years ago and it still looks amazing. The woman knows what she is doing.

  30. I love these kitchens. They are gorgeous. I had never thought of gray. RIght now our cabinets are getting painted in antique white. I can't even look at another color. I am pretty sure if I change color halfway through hubbie will not be thrilled. LOL
