Designer Chelsea Evans wasn’t daunted by this kitchen’s 1950’s wallpaper and the lime green countertops and backsplash.  As part of her overall design, we painted her cabinets in Sherwin Williams “Chamois“, “Thunderous“, and “High Reflective White“.

This stunning remodel by Haven Design and Construction was the second-most saved kitchen on Houzz in 2018! Perimeter cabinets are Sherwin Williams SW 7005 “Pure White” (painted by the cabinet maker), and the black island and range hood were painted by us in Benjamin Moore BM 2133-10 “Onyx“.  A perfect two-tone kitchen!

This kitchen in Rollingwood TX shows two cabinet colors beautifully.  Our Austin team painted the upper cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s HC-170, “Stonington Gray“, and the lowers and island in HC-154, “Hale Navy“.  The long expanse of cabinetry is now soothing and sophisticated, not just a wall of orange stained woodwork.

East Austin style, done to perfection!  We painted these IKEA cabinets in Benjamin Moore 469 “Backwoods“.  Notice how the homeowner removed the extra upper cabinets and tile backsplash, to make this kitchen that much lighter and brighter.

One of the most dramatic transformations by Abode Interior Design!  This hacienda-style Spanish kitchen was oversaturated with dated colors.  Gina Roth of Abode brought us in to help update the whole space, cabinets and all, in this fresh, lovely custom white.  Love the hammered copper sink and the two island countertops!

Kitchen cabinets painted in Sherwin Williams SW 7006 Extra White, Paper Moon Painting

A bright, modern update in Sherwin Williams 7006 “Extra White“!  We love this kitchen’s fresh, retro vibe.  Even if your cabinets were just a bit “blah” but not abysmally dark beforehand, a fresh color can make all the difference.  We love it when a fabulous kitchen before and after was accomplished with just paint!

The homeowner wanted this kitchen to feel as light and open as the sunroom it opens onto.  We painted the dark brown cabinets in Sherwin Williams “Iron Ore” and “Alabaster“.


Even though the white-and-navy colors of this Mueller (East Austin) kitchen were not bad, the homeowner wanted a more personal, fresh and unique vibe.  We painted the kitchen perimeter cabinets in Benjamin Moore 1565 “Mount Saint Anne“, and the island in HC-158 “Newburg Green“.

In addition to updating the flooring, counters and pendant lights, this homeowner had us paint her kitchen perimeter cabinets in Benjamin Moore OC-17 “White Dove“, and the island in Sherwin Williams 9138 “Stardew“.  Design selections by Cindy Newman of Creative Consulting in Dallas, Texas.  It’s a whole new space!

These homeowners love this rich, luscious deep teal color, which matches the silk velvet chairs in their adjoining dining room.  We love their bold sense of style!  Island painted in Benjamin Moore 2057-30 “Naples Blue“.  Outer cabinets in Sherwin Williams “Extra White” keep the space light and fresh.

We used Sherwin Williams “Light French Gray” to transform what used to be a wall of dark brown cabinets to a fresh, sophisticated kitchen.  We also love the simplified profile of the range hood!
