This kitchen is an eclectic mix of vintage and modern. Although the red cushions on the white chairs definitely draw the eye, the turquoise cabinets make an even bolder statement. Paired with white fixtures, the beautiful turquoise creates a very clean look that is nicely pulled together with the patterned wallpaper border to accentuate the color choice and design.
Kitchen cabinets typically extend from just above waist level to the ground but, as we see here, that isn’t always the case. In this modern design, the cabinets float in the room acting as a bar with supports only on the corners. The extremely sleek look is enhanced by clean lines and the contrast of light and dark in paint colors and accents like the countertops and back wall.
Circular in shape, this kitchen ties in its dark cabinetry with its beautiful and lighter hardwood floors. With a curved center island to draw in the eye, the stainless appliances are a nice compliment against the stained wood cabinets and dark countertops. The frosted patterned cabinet doors and hanging lighting add to the appeal of this elegant room.
Kitchens commonly feature quite a bit of white in their design from cabinetry to fixtures, paint colors and accessories. However, have you seen a kitchen where white was the primary color?
