Do you have cream-colored kitchen cabinets?
Pretty sure I've posted about this particular kitchen issue here in the past. The room has gone from being extremely colorful to a more toned-down version -- but I'm still not entirely pleased with my red cabinets. The longer I live with them (and it's been about 11 years now - they were this color when we bought the house), the more I find them just TOO much, particularly with our Saltillo tile floor, which is not going to be changed. I love my green walls, and actually really like red and green together (think old wooden-handled kitchen utensils painted those colors), but I'm just ... TIRED of the visual stimulation. I've tossed around the idea of repainting the cabinets and all of the trimwork in the kitchen and breakfast area, which would be a pretty big undertaking for me, but certainly want to be sure that I get the color right if I DO go that route. Lately I'm very drawn to creamy ivory cabinets and wanted to know if anyone here has used that color in their kitchen. If so, photos would be appreciated, and I'd also just like to know how you LIKE your cabinets painted that color.
I'm attaching a photo (albeit a poor one) that was taken quite awhile back. This doesn't show the green walls. The rug has since been changed to a more traditional Persian style in muted colors, but at least this gives an idea of the red-Red-RED that I'm up against here.
The backsplash is white subway tile, and the countertop is small white tile bordered by black tile. I've already got a pretty good mix of ivory and white in the kitchen, and I rather like the way that those two tones play off one another.
