Inset doors and drawers with raised panels and beaded frames emphasize the architectural character of traditional style with a treatment that resembles library paneling. Warm cherry in a medium to dark finish is the wood of choice for traditional kitchen cabinetry. Deep crown molding calls attention to the height of the room and provides a graceful transition from the cabinetry to the ceiling. For the island, the pairing of dark woodwork and light countertops is reversed, but the same molded panels and furniture-style feet tie it visually to the perimeter cabinets.
Shaker-style cabinetry features flat drawer fronts and cabinet doors with flat-face frames surrounding a flat recessed panel. An incised line of beading may surround the drawers and doors, as in this kitchen, as a subtle outline for emphasis. Here leaded-glass doors original to the 1882 house are installed in the upper cabinets to lighten the effect of so much cabinetry. Wide beaded-board backsplashes and simple white knobs respect the vintage character of the house, and classic Victorian green paint preserves the original aesthetic.
In this case, you have a choice on how to present the trend. You can pair a bold color with white, as shown above. Alternatively, you could try for an ombre look. Either way, the key to pulling this look off is to repeat the lighter color in other applications throughout the room.
