Benjamin Moore’s 2015 Color of the Year: Guilford Green

When we first glimpsed Benjamin’s Moore’s 2015 Color of the Year, Guilford Green, we instantly saw it as an ideal hue for kitchen cabinets. White and stained wood seem to monopolize the cabinet game these days, but we love the idea of introducing color into cabinetry. This neutral, sage-y green would be perfectly lovely in a farmhouse-inspired kitchen or could add some warmth to a more modern and sophisticated cabinet style.

Each of our cabinet manufacturers feature at least one finish akin to Guilford Green. Available in a variety of door styles, we’re loving the interesting and versatile nature of this beguiling green.
