From colorful cabinets to statement artwork to artful storage arrangements, take cues from these bold design choices in the kitchen for when boring is not an option.

1. Try Unexpected Color Combinations. Red accents against cabinetry painted in Benjamin Moore's Bright Lime make for a surprising (though pleasing) pairing.

2. Choose Statement Artwork. A large photograph from Natural Curiosities adds (literally) fierce style to Erika Bearman's minimalist Southampton kitchen.

3. Transform with Wallpaper. What looks like intricate 16th-century Iznik tile work is actually wallpaper that Paris-based artists Dimonah and Mehmet Iksel hand printed for their otherwise all-white kitchen.

4. Go for Glossy. The lacquered finish adds a rich dimension to this Miles Redd-designed room, painted floor-to-ceiling in Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue.

5. Add a Pop of Color. A strip of yellow serves a wink in Lisa Perry's otherwise all-white Palm Beach kitchen.

6. Install a Dramatic Pot Rack. In this sophisticated all-white kitchen designed by William Sofield, the stunning pot rack from Ann-Morris Antiques is like a work of art.

7. Add Elegant Accent Wallpaper. In this London flat designed by Alex Papachristidis, the kitchen is elevated from utilitarian to sophisticated with Nina Campbell's Tamarin Wallpaper by Osborn & Little.
