Using Gray in your Kitchen

You've probably heard that gray is the new brown. 
It's funny, I feel like people aren't neutral about gray....they either love it or hate it.
While I think browns will always have a strong hold on our homes here in Utah, there is no doubt that gray is here. 
Colour me Happy has a fantastic post called What Everyone Should Know About Gray, check it out.
Today I thought I'd show some pictures of beautiful gray kitchens.

This first kitchen has what looks to be Carrara marble countertops.  You see a lot of white subway tile with white marble countertops.  I really like that they used this gray subway tile from Urban Archeology instead.

I love this kitchen from Houzz.  The countertops are Absolute Black granite and the tile backsplash is probably Carrara.

Gray cabinets with white countertops are always beautiful.  This is Martha Stewart's kitchen.

If you don't want gray cabinets and are looking for gray countertops instead look into CaesarStone.  Their Cement, Pebble, Dusty Stones, Misty Carrera, Cinder and Rosemary colors would all be beautiful.  The photo below is Pebble CaesarStone.



Pietra Cardosa is a schist that is a beautiful countertop material.  It's a dark gray that sometimes has some really pretty white veining.  Pietra Cardosa looks great in almost any kitchen.

So what do you think?  Yay or nay on gray in the kitchen?

Yay for sure! Of course, I'm a bit biased because I love grey, but I think all these kitchens are classic looks that will never go out of style. And grey goes great with so many other colours, so you can always punch up a grey kitchen with colour in items like dish towels, pottery, even small appliances.

I am liking the gray, too. I just glazed our white Fireplace mantle with a Stainless Steel glaze, giving it that gray look. And I love the look of the white and gray kitchens, but, in my heart of hearts, know that I am a warm wood girl.
