First, it was white upper cabinets and gray lower cabinets. Then it was black and white, which I call the tuxedo look which tends to be a little more buttoned up – naturally.

Here’s what I think is going to have a moment or a year in 2019, white upper cabinets and natural wood lower cabinets. House Beautiful’s kitchen of the month in the January issue is, you guessed it, white + wood.
It’s the warmth for the cool, classic white kitchen. The combo is also very versatile, it swings to modern and very quickly can swing back to traditional.
You don’t really want me to explain this to you when we have great visual aides to do all the heavy lifting here.
