This renovated bungalow with a French-inspired kitchen in Plaza Midwood was recently listed for $925,000.

Why it matters: All-white kitchens are out. Color — like the green used in this kitchen and throughout the home — is in.

The vibe: The home, which was fully renovated in 2020, is a blend of "historic perfection and sophisticated luxury," according to listing agent Ken Riel.

  • The kitchen, for example, has a 500-bottle wine vault, a green built-in rotisserie oven, sleek black cabinetry and gold hardware.
  • You'll also find small green details in the Moroccan walk-in closet, light fixtures and outside on the shaded front porch.
  • The house also has a pool, guest house, and kitchenette.

Zoom in: At 1,273 square feet, the main home has one bedroom and one and a half bathrooms.

Driving the news: The National Kitchen and Bath Association's annual report, which surveyed around 600 design professionals across the U.S., reveals sleeker, warmer, more contemporary designs will dominate in the years to come.

  • After years of muted farmhouse-style kitchens, 2024 ushers in an earthier era, with greens, blues, natural wood tones and warm metals.

The big picture: Color, especially green and blue, is making its way back into home design, a rebellious reaction to years of bright white and muted grays.

  • The goal of warmer, earthier tones is to create a sense of "nature, calm and harmony," per the report.

Bonus: The listing also comes with an 380-square-foot guest house with one bedroom and one and half bathrooms.

  • Features include a kitchenette, den, plus a retractable glass wall that opens up to the pool and fenced-in yard.
