Instagram has been serving up some serious inspiration lately to help you create your dream kitchen. From unique tile styles to curated accessories and fresh color palettes, we’re breaking down the 10 best kitchen designs we’ve spotted on Instagram recently.  

Monochrome Moment

Colored kitchen cabinetry is majorly trending right now, but this kitchen, takes it one step further. Michigan-based designer Jean Stoffer tiled the wall of this kitchen in a matching hue, adding continuity. With sleek brass finishes, playful lighting and a vintage runner, this is a space we’d be more than happy to cook in.

Mix & Match

We can’t decide which part of this kitchen we love the most. From the multi-colored cabinetry and copper sink, to the floor to ceiling subway tile and the major wine fridge, this kitchen is filled with nuanced design decisions. Recreate the look by mixing and matching metals like brass and copper, and using different hues for your upper and lower cabinets. Add in a neutral runner (and a cute pup!) and you’ll be ditching the takeout menus in no time.

All About That Brass

This modern take on the all-white kitchen is a masterclass in metals. From the lighting to the faucet to the cabinetry, brass hardware ties the entire space together. Neutral accessories, like an understated runner and ceramic vessels, create this anything but boring, black and white beauty.

Wicker Wonderful

Proving that wicker isn’t just a warm-weather material, this bright and airy kitchen gives off the feeling of summer all year round. Playing off the exposed beams, woven wicker pendants bring natural, textural drama to the space. Combined with modern brass finishes, bamboo dining chairs and a classic subway tile backsplash, this kitchen will have you planning a vacation—at home.

Traditional Charm

Taking inspiration from nature, this traditional Victorian abode is home to a truly unique and timeless kitchen. In a small space, kitchen islands can feel bulky, but this cast iron and marble island offers a slim profile, while still providing additional counter space. Modern globe sconces and glass pendants keep the space feeling fresh, while the original brick floors ensure the room stays true to its traditional roots.

Color Coordinated

Pink and green is one of our favorite color combos! This stunner, also designed by Jean Stoffer, takes colored kitchen cabinetry to a whole new level. Again, two colors make an appearance instead of one, as do mixed-metal finishes. By opting for a lighter color for the island facade, the space reflects even more of the natural light streaming in from the window.

Going Green

We’re truly green with envy over this kitchen by UK-based deVOLKitchens. We’ve fallen hard for a lot of their projects, but this major marble moment stands out as a favorite. Often times marble can make a kitchen feel a tad too contemporary, but by using a deep green hue on both the cabinets and walls, this kitchen is anything but ordinary. Complete the look with a variety of vintage art and decor to bring extra personality to the space.

Storybook Solutions

We can’t help but think of Beauty & The Beast every time we see this incredibly fun kitchen. You usually find rolling ladders in libraries, but we love seeing them used in the kitchen. They allow for true floor to ceiling storage, especially when ceilings are particularly high, but make it easy (and fun!) to get to those hard to reach spaces. Accent the playful look with a collection of pendant lightings and you’ll be swinging into culinary success in no time.

Luxe Lighting

Hollywood’s favorite designers, and vintage lighting pros, Pierce & Ward have an unmistakable eye for romantic, showstopper style. Case in point: this minty fresh kitchen where vintage globe pendant lighting takes center stage over the island. Wooden stools coordinate with the open shelving to keep the space warm and inviting. We’re currently dreaming of entertaining in such a pretty kitchen!

The New Neutral

Grey is anything but boring in this stunning kitchen by Illinois-based design firm Park & Oak. Using the same color for all of the cabinets, the hidden refrigerator, and even the stove’s hood, the sleek space allows for the soothing gray hue to truly shine. With vintage drawer pulls and industrial-style lighting, this kitchen retains a sense of warmth thanks to rattan chairs, exposed wooden beams, and a vintage runner.
