If you read my blog you know that I am all about white kitchens with that classic Hamptons-style look. But thank goodness that we are not all the same and I am so glad when I find clients that have different tastes from mine. I love thinking a little outside of the box and go beyond the usual, that’s where a non-white kitchen comes as an inspiration for me.
Designed by Palmetto Cabinet Studio, this kitchen with rustic influences is a good example of how to design a non-white kitchen today without it becoming outdated in a couple of years.
I feel this is one of the best kitchens because it knows how to compromise dark cabinets with a hint of white. When you first look at this kitchen you have the feeling of a completely non-white space, but if you carefully look at it, you will notice that the island is painted in white but its stained wood “x mullion” adds warmth to the space and camouflages the island, making it feel as if it belongs to the space. Therefore, you see the importance of balancing elements in a non-white kitchen to deliver a harmonious space instead of dark and overly designed.
… And just because our home is not only made up of a kitchen, I’m also sharing some other rooms of this house, including the bathroom, laundry room, mudroom, butler’s panty and wait until you see the kitchen pantry of this house!
Let me know you thoughts and let’s pin away!
How to Design a Non-White Kitchen
These custom cabinets were designed by Palmetto Cabinet Studio and supplied by Bremtown Fine Cabinetry. The color is Low Sheen Black.
Make sure to notice the floating shelves with baskets. I am loving this rustic look against the exposed brick backsplash wall.
Countertop: The island top is Black Absolute granite with a leather finish. The perimeter is Calcutta Gold polished marble.
The designer painted the interiors of the black cabinets with the glass doors in white to create balance with the white island. The x based island is made of reclaimed wood and brings warmth to the kitchen island, while a dark stone countertop creates a cohesive look with the rest of the kitchen.
I love the brass cabinet hardware, brass kitchen faucet and the copper sink. The copper farmhouse sink is from Officine Gullo USA.
The flooring is reclaimed white oak, black stained, with a dry-brush finish.
The dining room chandelier was made by Lowcountry Originals.
Wall paint color is Revere Pewter HC-172 by Benjamin Moore.
Also, notice the butler’s pantry on the left, just off of the kitchen.
The limestone hood is by Francois & Co.
This kitchen bar is custom made from Reclaimed White Oak and it is approximately 85″w x 24″d.
I love this powder room! Notice the thick wooden washstand made of reclaimed white oak, the siplap walls and the encaustic tiles (seen on the left corner).
The brass sconces are Sahara Sconce by Arteriors – $240 each.
The material used on walls is smooth wood planks, installed horizontally.
Mirror is Drake French Country Rosette Metal Framework Large Mirror from Kathy Kuo Home – $1,077
Faucet is is Delta Vero in Champagne Bronze.
A row of windows above the sink bring plenty of natural light into this beautiful laundry room.
Countertop is Black Absolute granite.
This mudroom features limestone floor tiles and graywashed cabinets.
Limestone floor tiles are from Francois and Co.
Cabinet counters are made of reclaimed white oak. Notice the bench flanked by the gray cabinets.
Bench is Modena Bench by Gabby Home – $1,747.50
“American Morse Code” poster is available through One Kings Lane. – $1,115.00
.I’m saving the best for last today! Isn’t this pantry the most beautiful you have ever seen? Take a look at that stunning Dutch door with porthole window and brass hardware. Truly a showstopper!
Countertop is Calcutta Gold polished marble.

It’s wonderful to start this week with you guys here. I’m a little late with this post because I spent my weekend working on my client’s cottage design. I’m currently designing their master ensuite and I have to say that this is one of the most exciting bathrooms I have designed, and I hope to share pictures with you when it is completed. We’ll be using some exciting elements and I think you guys will love to see it!
Have I told you I love my work? It’s even better when you end-up having clients like the ones I have. In fact, I have to say that I always become good friends with my clients… I guess I’m always Blessed with great people! 🙂
Talking about great people…. it’s so wonderful to know you are here today! I hope this week brings many beautiful things in your life to fill your heart with gratitude.
