White Kitchen + Gray Walls: Reveal (Benjamin Moore Silver Fox)

 

I remembered the other day that I hadn’t yet showed you the Benjamin Moore Silver Fox (gray) paint in our kitchen!   I already showed you how the Living Room turned out.  I am still loving the colors we used in that room: Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue and Benjamin Moore Navajo White.  Sometimes I get so involved in the smaller ‘crafty’-type projects that I forget about the bigger-impact changes we’ve made around here.

We decided on Benjamin Moore Silver Fox for the kitchen.  The kitchen is directly across from the living room in an ‘open concept’ type layout, so I was a little hesitant to introduce a third color to the mix. But I’ve been jonesing on white kitchens with gray walls for awhile now.  And since gray is technically a ‘neutral’, I threw caution to the wind and we went for it.  Here’s how it looks now.  This particular gray has a warm undertone (and a brown / taupe cast) so it actually works quite well with the chocolate island and brown furniture throughout the space.

The sea glass back splash was a project a couple of summers ago.

I find that the pewter mosaic insets look much better now with the Silver Fox painted walls than they did before when the walls were a shade of taupe-y green.

You’ll notice a few pops of turquoise here and there in my accessories, like this ceramic planter that I use to hold utensils and the floral dish towel.

I found this white plate at Crate & Barrel last Christmas.  It was too cute to put away with the Christmas decorations, so I paired it with some plates in the same color as the back splash.

Silver Fox was a great paint color to help pull the space together. It pulls the grays from the counter, the back splash and the stainless steel appliances, but also picks up on all the brown in the space.

On the opposite side of the kitchen island (see photo below), Benjamin Moore Navajo White continues on from the Living Room. The glass door to our basement is Benjamin Moore Arctic Blue.  I just love that color!

There’s a little corner between the dining area and living room that’s just big enough for this small gray chair :-).

So there you have it.

I am really digging how it all turned out.

White cabinets + gray walls = a match made in heaven.

Post Script: My kitchen was featured at Whisperwood Cottage,the official talent scout for Cottages & Bungalows Magazine. Insert big happy face here ;-).

  1. Hi Kerri,
    Love, love, love your kitchen! Where did you get your dining chandelier?

    Thanks,
    Donna

    • Hi Donna – Thanks so much! I purchased the kitchen chandeliers when we built our home 6-7 years ago at Bowring here in Canada. They are probably discontinued by now :-(. But here’s the store site: http://www.bowring.com/. Thanks for coming by, Kerri

  2. I love this color! Do you think it would go well with my oak cabinets and white appliances?

  3. Kerri, your kitchen is amazing! I don’t know how I haven’t come across this yet! Stopping by from the Haven link up and saw your kitchen when I checked out your home tour. I especially like the hood, and, oh how I dream of having an island with a sink. I’d love to feature this on my paint color blog. Let me know if you’re interested!

  4. Did you paint your own cabinets? If so, what color did you use? LOVE the whole kitchen :)

    • I wish I could say I did ;-), but no, they were completed by a professional kitchen contractor when we built our home. I’m not sure of the exact color, but they are definitely a bright white. Thanks for the sweet comment and for coming by! ~Kerri

  5. HI, Kerri, I had to come over and see your kitchen. It is beautiful, so warm and inviting. Hope my kitchen turns out as well as yours did. So excited to get in my house too & start working on the fun stuff. I still have you in line for my Feature Friday (soon, soon!)

    • Thanks Rhoda! I’m really enjoying following your home reno ‘story’; especially all the photos of your dad helping you with the carpentry and such. Just warms my heart. P.S., No rush on the Feature Friday; I’m super-excited about it, but I also know how consuming and exciting a home reno can be! Keep having fun with it! Hugs, Kerri

  6. Hi! So happy I found your blog! So beautiful! So inspirational!
    Do you recall the color of your cabinets? My kitchen/dining area is Revere Pewter and we are going to paint the cabinets, but I am in a tizzy over what color to pair with the walls….white, cream or gray. I am loving yours. :)

  7. Kerri…this is just so lovely! a beautiful kitchen…i love the bread basket with the chalkboard :) cuteness!

  8. What a beautiful kitchen! The paint colour is the perfect complement for your white cabinets. I’m currently thinking of painting my currently-aqua kitchen the same grey/tan that is in the adjoining living room. I’d do it in a heartbeat if my cabinets were white! They’re light-peachy-faux-wood instead and my husband says I’m not allowed to paint them ;-)

  9. I have brown sofas too and I am at a lost on what color rug to choose. Doesn’t look like you have a rug in the living room. Are you thinking about getting one?

    • I actually just added one a few days ago! Its a cream shag rug, and it looks great. Thanks for coming by! ~Kerri

  10. Your kitchen is gorgeous!! I love the chandeliers…and the paint color and…I could go on and on. Beautiful job!
    Londen

    • Thanks so much, Londen. I’m flattered, especially considering that 65th Ave has been one of my faves for the past few years. Thanks for coming by! ~Kerri :-)

  11. your kitchen is beautiful. Great job!

  12. I think of the 3 new colors, this one is my fave! Looks awesome with the white cabinets and backsplash! I helped pick paint for a friends dining room a couple weeks ago…silver fox. And, Revere Pewter in her kitchen. Looks so great! I walked in her dining room and went WOW! Now, I’m searching for a place for it in my home! Ahh, paint envy ;-) I bet you’re thrilled with the 1st floor changes!

    • Thanks Lynette! Yes, I’m pretty pleased with the choices! I ended up using Revere Pewter in my 1/2 bath and laundry room, and I LOVE it. I’m sure you’ll find a wall or two that you can paint! Chat soon, Kerri

  13. Your kitchen is really lovely and fresh and peaceful looking! I don’t usually take time to comment on people’s homes (just their projects), but yours is really pretty!

    • Thanks Carole Anne! That’s the look I was going for! (Peace amongst the chaos, lol) Hope all is well with you, Kerri :-)
