Written by Jenna Talbott • Photographed by Jessica Delaney // Interior designer Christina Wikman of Christina Wikman Interiors recently shared with us a new trend in kitchens she’s noticed. “We’re slowly seeing a cabinet color shift from cool whites and gray that have been so popular for the past 10 years to warmer, earthier neutrals with beige and taupe undertones. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the change. For me, these tones create a warm and comforting environment yet remain classic and timeless.”

This kitchen designed by Christina Wikman features Farrow & Ball Drop Cloth 283 on the customized IKEA cabinets. Christina describes the color as a ‘greige tone that leans toward beige.’ 

Other colors she recommends are Farrow & Ball Oxford Stone 264 (‘richer and slightly more saturated than Drop Cloth, with brown undertones’) and Benjamin Moore Natural Wicker 950 (‘less gray than Drop Cloth, and creamier and warm.’)
