Inspiring Design: Chartreuse Millwork

We love the beauty of luxurious, natural wood millwork, and white-painted millwork is also classic. But for a quirky, contemporary look, why not go out on a limb with a bold color? We came across these examples of chartreuse interiors and just had to share.

Somewhere between lime green and lemon yellow, chartreuse adds a poppy, citrus-y kick to any space. Take a look at some great ways to use chartreuse and fine millwork together.

The traditional built-in cabinetry in this historic home has been given a jolt of color, which contrasts nicely with the warm wood plank flooring.

A chartreuse door makes a statement in this otherwise understated foyer.

OK, so this is not an example of painted millwork, but look at how fabulous this chartreuse wall looks juxtaposed with a sleek floating sideboard in a rich, medium dark wood. Floating cabinets are a great choice for contemporary interior design, adding storage while still keeping an open feel to the space.

Kitchen Design Trend: Masculine Cabinetry

One of the biggest changes we’re seeing lately in custom kitchen cabinetry is a move towards more substantial, masculine design. As this article from the Boston Globe explains, a “squarer, thicker, chunkier, and more architectural” look is becoming increasingly popular for luxury kitchens.

To balance this more substantial cabinetry style, designers are adding feminine finishes and accent materials, from painted cabinets to marble counters to shimmery backsplashes. Take a look at a few beautiful kitchens that illustrate this design style.
