It’s really wonderful to have Julie Smith of Jula Cole Design (previously featured here) back on HomeBunch. I am feeling very inspired by this designer’s fresh approach and this kitchen design should inspire you, especially if you’re loving this new kitchen trend: painted cabinets mixed with stained wood.
Here, the designer shares more details about this kitchen renovation:
“This was a fully gutted kitchen and living room renovation. The home was stuck in the early 2000’s with maple cabinets and old-school granite. The clients were craving a fun tile which was the inspiration for the project. I chose a Tabarka tile with a fun pattern and built everything around that. I wanted to make sure I was adding lots of wood to add warmth and ground the space as the ceilings were more than 11’. The oversize pendants were another element we used to play with scale.” – Julie Smith of Jula Cole Design.
This recently-renovated kitchen features a balanced combination of stained wood and painted cabinets with black accents.
Wood Cabinets: Custom stained Alder and White Oak. The custom stain color took a few times to reach the perfect shade. I think that Julie has found a really special color for this kitchen. It feels modern, clean without being too trendy. I couldn’t get tired of it!
White Cabinet Paint Color: “Benjamin Moore Simply White”.
The kitchen island extends to an eating area. Overhang is 54”.
Countertop is Granite; Sienna Mist honed.
Vase Filler: Dried Plume Reed Bouquet.

This family room feels really beautiful without feeling too precious. I love the idea of having a large sectional in a darker fabric. It’s very forgiving, which is essential in busy spaces like the family room.
Window Treatments: Woven wood shades.

A leather always bring warmth to any space.
Brown, black and charcoal make this neutral home feel warmer and cozier. This definitely is a gorgeous and inspiring color scheme!
