The holidays are finally on our front doorstep, and our kitchens are full of mouth-watering smells and glorious goodies as we prepare to celebrate the season with loved ones. Whether you're cooking up a feast in your kitchen this holiday or keeping it low key with sweatpants and a meal in the microwave, these stunningly beautiful kitchens are sure to warm up even the Grinchiest of hearts.
In the wintertime, a bright cherry red in your kitchen takes on the spirit of Santa's suit, while a glowing gold reflects the light of every candle in the room. Hunter green is reminiscent of a lush forest of winter pine, and a sparkling white kitchen is reflective like a fresh blanket of snow. Silver shimmers throughout every occasion, shining in your kitchen like a dark and dramatic winter sky full of stars.
In the winter, we bunker down in our cozy homes to harbor away from cold weather. Our nests deserve to feel fabulous as we face the coldest season of the year!
'Tis the season! Here are Inspiring Kitchens in 5 Festive Holiday Colors
1.) Hunter Green
Like a forest full of pine trees, hunter green provides just enough darkness and depth to make any space feel sophisticated and mysterious. Inspired by the color of a winter pine, hunter green is a holiday-appropriate color that works in your kitchen for every season. Hunter green pairs well with a variety of colors, including charcoal gray, cream, eggplant, periwinkle, black, and white. A dark and sophisticated green also pairs well with a number of textures and coordinating metallics. Try pairing hunter green cabinets with white marble countertops, or a hunter green wall with a white subway tile backsplash. Finish with copper pots and pans or gold cabinet hardware.
For a kitchen that matches Santa's suit, look no further than a classic, cherry red, made festive with decorations of the season. Cherry red can be used in your kitchen in a number of different ways, whether it just be a pop of the color or an entire wall draped in red. For a dash of nostalgia that never goes out of style, consider a retro appliance in a slick cherry red, or a small appliance like a microwave or kitchen mixer. Pair red in your kitchen with raw wood floors, stone, and painted cabinets for a rustic-inspired, traditional country kitchen.

Silver can commonly be seen in modern kitchens, often times as the main metallic and star of the theme. Known to be one of the most neutral metallics, silver pairs well with a variety of colors and textures. Use silver in your backsplash tiles to create a shimmering mosaic, or use silver for the surface of your countertops and cabinets. For classic color combinations, pair silver with white, black, blue, or green (mint green in particular). Silver shimmers all year long, creating a glowing kitchen in the winter and a cool-toned solace in the summer.

Gold will never go out of style, creating an air of elegance in your kitchen 24/7 that lasts through every season. In the winter, gold glows in your home, reflecting light to create an atmosphere that is truly warm and cozy. Gold can be used in your kitchen in endless ways, from the cabinet hardware to the surface of your kitchen counters. Pair gold with navy blue or black for a handsome marriage of cool, dramatic color and warm metallics. Or pair white marble countertops with gold sink fixtures and appliances trimmed with elegant metals.

5.) Snow White
In the winter, an all-white kitchen reminds us of a winter wonderland blanketed in snow. Using white in your kitchen is easy to do, as it almost pairs with any color, texture, or material that you throw at it. Use raw, exposed wooden beams in your white kitchen for a shabby chic effect, or pair with a contrasting backsplash to create immediate a center and something for the eye to focus on. Or try using a colored appliance in your all-white kitchen for a pop of color that doesn't overwhelm the senses.
