Monochromatic food prep spaces are sooo passé. Here’s to welcoming one of the most exciting trends for 2020: two toned kitchen cabinets! These color blocked pieces create instant visual impact. Look to designs by Jennifer Jacob of New Jersey based Builders’ General (multiple locations in the state), whose clients have translated the concept successfully, including in an award winning home project in Normandy Beach. Here are juxtaposed high contrast hues in maple, Ted Wood landmark kitchen cabinetry with ecru, and Taj Mahal Quartzite countertops, with a perimeter and island finished in an opaque white while the wet bar presents cherry wood with shadow black glaze. No other design we know presents elements of this trend as well. buildersgeneral.com

Whether it’s a gilded bronze etagere against a slab black feature wall or a statement couch in bright blue against gray dividers, high contrast draws the eye. It’s also one of the hottest trends in home décor this year. So, create a symphony of brilliance with juxtaposed highoctane pieces guaranteed to spice up your interior game.
