Colour in the Kitchen: White
Ahh, the white kitchen. Love it or hate it, it’s a classic. White (like black) can go from modern to mod and rustic to retro. In terms of longevity and resale value, white is always a safe bet. (If you can keep it clean, that is.) I’ve always claimed to hate an all-white look, but seeing these photos, I admit I’m loving some of these.

Another Domino pic (via Desire to Inspire), this kitchen is a favourite of mine. I love how the wallpaper brings a pop of colour to the modern white cabinets:
