You know when Cameron Diaz is rocking new emerald green kitchen cabinets in her West Village apartment, we’ve got a hot design trend on our hands. Rather than using wall paint the colorful backdrop, it is the cabinets themselves taking center stage in bold, saturated hues.
In Cameron’s kitchen, a lacquered finish adds depth to the dark green jewel tone. Accents of copper and brass make it come to life in a rich way- designed by Kelly Wearstler

Here less is more! A bright, high gloss yellow is the perfect pop for this small, simple and streamlined kitchen
I especially love this idea as a way to refresh old and tired cabinets. Another effective way to embrace this trend is to only paint the base cabinets a bright color, leaving the upper a white or pale neutral. By keeping everything else scaled back and neutral, you can have fun changing the base color down the road to switch up the look!

One of my favorites- Tiffany blue base cabinets.
This is also a perfect DIY project for a bathroom vanity! Just remember the key point to take away is balance – The bold color becomes the focal point. Let the countertop, backsplash and walls be toned back – whether it be a neutral stone, metal surface or white subway tile. Now let’s pick a paint color and let the transformation begin!
