Decor Q&A: Black cabinets with yellow countertops?!

The Nest Q&A

We have yellow '70s counters with brown and black wood grain. The Nest magazine painted their cabinets black, but would that work with yellow counter tops?

I would focus on the countertop in this situation. Painting the cabinets is a great way to update it with black, navy, or a neutral tone -- but definitely stay away from other colors if you opt to paint. In terms of that yellow, you could go retro with it and embrace it with mod white cabinets. But without seeing the yellow, I’ll make a big bold suggestion -- opt for a new countertop instead!
