Cast iron skillets, open shelving, "elevated farmhouse" aesthetics, "moody" colors, sustainable materials, and bigger, bolder backsplash tile are all on the table this year. The kitchen table, that is.

Leslie Bowman, interior designer and founder of The Design Bar in Chicago, explains the shifting sands of color trends, “Get ready to see kitchen trends take a turn this year from light and airy to dark and moody,” adding, “While white will certainly still find its way into designs through glistening subway tiles and countertops, the white-on-white aesthetic has seen its day."

But which hues suit the mood? Annabel Joy, interior designer and founder of Trim Design Co. in Boston, tells that blues and greens are the wave of the future, "We think Rosemary green will be the MVP of 2019," explaining, "It’s the perfect marriage of muted sage with deep forest, and it looks great with the current matte-black hardware trend as well as with perma-popular brass."

For years, our kitchens have been dominated by bland, white-on-white palettes, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. "Neutral" has been the reigning buzzword.

But are you growing weary of playing it safe? Eager to put your decor in the blender and mix it up? Luckily, 2019 is delivering for change agents. This year, we're tossing neutral design schemes out the window and embracing our collective desire to make a statement.
