Bright Lime Kitchen

lime kitchen cabinets - Actor Anthony Edwards' transitional kitchen with cabinets painted Bright Lime by Benjamin Moore plus white and gray accents - Elle Decor via AtticmagLime kitchen cabinets are a confident choice based on a paint-store color.

When I’m attracted to something strong in the kitchen it’s usually coffee, horseradish or the color green, particularly an acid – or sharp, yellow-green – hue like the one that gives these lime kitchen cabinets such amazing verve. It’s also great to be able to get specific about the color which, in this case, is Benjamin Moore’s Bright Lime. And there’s a juicy back story here, too, since the kitchen belongs to actor Anthony Edwards (formerly of E.R.)  and his wife, Stila make up founder Jeanine Lobell, for whom color is serious business.

This is a good example of a transitional kitchen as it has traditional elements like the lime kitchen cabinets with Shaker style doors combined with stainless steel counters. There’s a stainless dishwasher along with the white Franke fire clay apron front sink — two subordinate coordinating colors conveniently noted on the Ben Moore card. Two pops of hot orange from well-used cast iron cookware brings in another accent color that’s especially compatible and often used as it sits across the color wheel from green. What’s also interesting to note is how Bright Lime acts as a modernizing color — much like black. With a zero radius sink and a paneled dishwasher this kitchen could be pushed easily towards a more contemporary aesthetic.

    Looks yummy, sunny, and quite sharp. Love it, but I don’t think I could do it.

    I love this! Definitely stimulates the brain. The farmhouse sink is beautiful. I just got one ( and can’t wait to paint my cabinets. I don’t think I could pull off the lime, but I am so excited to do something like this.
