Orange in Cornelius, North Carolina

A standout amidst the dark cabinets, these orange appliances are a beautiful addition to this kitchen in North Carolina.

Yellow in West University Place, Texas

There’s no question that this abundance of yellow kitchen cabinetry is eye-catching. Multiple shades such as lemon, canary, and even a hint of unripe banana offer incredible depth to the custom finishes in this space by Emily June Designs.
