Not for the faint at heart, this eclectic kitchen designed by John Ryba is saturated in a rich, red lacquer. The white ceiling and stainless-steel appliances help reflect light, an important design element when working with a bold color.
This pink and black kitchen is not for the timid. Hot pink cabinets, pink and black graphic wallpaper, and retro pendant lamps work with a curved black countertop on the island and the black and white barstools.
A hand-blown Murano glass chandelier above the sink picks up on the vibrant red and yellow hues embedded into this eclectic kitchen. With fire-engine red appliances and bright yellow walls, the space is a piece of art in itself.
What this gutted kitchen lacks in storage space it makes up for in charm. By removing a wall between the kitchen and dining room, HGTV's Kitchen Cousins turned two small, unusable spaces into one larger spot perfect for parties.
Designers wanted to create a stylish, functional space in this eclectic kitchen so they added a large, multi-function kitchen island. On one side, sleek black cabinets create a chic design, but they also house several cabinets and drawers to give the kitchen lots of storage. On the other side of the island, gray paneled cabinets provide even more storage and orange bar stools provide casual seating at the breakfast bar.
Wooden open shelving and white beadboard walls bring a country cottage feel to this kitchen. The white antique oven serves as the statement piece, adding character and charm. Incorporating a framed picture into the shelf display adds another layer, giving it a lived-in look.
The kitchen in this country home has an eclectic European feel with the tumbled stone floors and a rustic terra cotta backsplash tiles. These elements have a patina that contrasts with the modern range and vintage stainless steel island. Glass-front cabinets and open shelves complete the look.
