As home design lovers, you’ve probably guessed we’re obsessed with color. Whether it’s trends like matte black, bright whites or the Pantone Color of the Year, we want to see it, try it and design it all. Looks like we’re in the right industry! Want to join us?
The kitchen is the heart of the home and, as such, is one of the most fun rooms to renovate. Whether you’re upgrading appliances, adding pops of color or painting the cabinets, you can completely transform the room with just a few subtle updates.
To inspire your redesign, we rounded up the Bay Area’s most stunning kitchen color palettes. Just a quick coat of paint, a new backsplash, or a quick chat with one of our agents and these rooms could be yours!

Inside this Novato home, you’ll find a one-of-kind kitchen with a one-of-a-kind color palette.Taking cues from the matte black trend and Pantone’s Color of the Year, this design adds natural wood and shades of green for extra oomph. We love the way the backsplash mimics the view of the backyard to bring life and nature into the space!

In another break from the ordinary, this Russian Hill condo merges soft tones and luxury appliances in the kitchen. Paired with gorgeous green-hued granite countertops, the soft pastel green of the cabinetry adds interest and perfectly complements the off-white walls and the rich hardwood floors.
Classic Bright White

Tucked into a hillside, this private home was designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and exquisitely remodeled by Ryan Associates in 2004. Taking inspiration from modern design, the stark and stunning kitchen is illuminated with bright whites and stainless steel. Paired with the natural light coming in from huge windows, it creates a bright and clean environment that is always on trend!
Beachy Seafoam Serenity

This 5 bedroom gem in San Anselmo is filled with elegant color combinations of jewel tones, stained glass and rich woods. The kitchen’s pop of seafoam green and white stone countertops is reminiscent of a beachy getaway, yet someone gets to call it home. The stainless steel appliances are the icing on the cake!

This Dolores Park home is filled with bright white spaces and beautiful natural woods, so the deep espresso colors in the kitchen are a pleasant transition. Paired with stunning stainless steel appliances and modern cabinetry, the room feels gourmet and a perfect fit for a top chef (and designer!).

We love this home’s kitchen for a lot of reasons: the wide open layout with an airy atmosphere, the gorgeous hardwood floors, and the contrast between those rich browns with crisp whites and stainless steel. With this type of design, you’re free to switch the color palette with the seasons or simply with your mood! Here, an elegant centerpiece adds a touch of green that echoes the colors outside.

Nothing says elegance like a marble countertop. But when you pair that with light, natural woods, silver hardware and stainless steel, you get a stunning mid-century modern design as shown in this beautiful Embarcadero condo. Open shelving lets you add your own character and pops of color!
Pop Art with Character

This Oakland home is filled with art and color — from the backyard mural to the rooftop deck. The current design in the kitchen takes advantage of natural light coming in through the windows and pairs it with bright yellows and whites. We love the contrast of crisp quartz countertops with the deep grays of the trendy cement floor.
