This bright, white open-concept chef's kitchen boasts a beautiful Carrara marble island in the center of the space. Natural wood barstools and an upholstered bench allow for island-side eating and geometric pendants add an eclectic, stylish touch.
Surprising yet delightful material choices elevate the style in this understated kitchen in a home in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. Copper cabinetry form the base of a kitchen island topped with a thick slab of exotic wood. Geometric-print cement floor tiles tie together the black cabinetry and cream-colored subway tile backsplash.
To create a polished look in this remodeled kitchen, designers added a stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and sink. A stainless steel range hood is suspended just above the center of the kitchen island, its geometric design complementing that of the hexagonal tiles. On the back wall above the sink, open shelving creates functional, convenient storage for easy access to dishes.
In the kitchen space, designers used wall hangings and countertops to make the space feel relaxed, yet modern. Wicker, geometric wall hangings add warmth to the space while pulling in a beachy vibe, while the waterfall countertop on the kitchen island creates dimension in this small space.
A black and white kitchen opens to contemporary sitting and breakfast areas that incorporate colorful accents and varying textures. White waterfall marble counters cover the island’s black cabinetry, as glass pendants hang above. In the sitting area, velvet chairs in a deep cobalt color, accented by pillows with bold geometric prints, sit in front of a trio of large windows. A smooth lucite coffee table is topped with shaggy, sheep’s wool, and is anchored by a neutral rug. Mirrored panels in the nook reflect the room’s natural light, and the white table and mid-century dining chairs add subtle modern touches to the classic space.
On either side of the fireplace, distressed console tables were brought in to add a bit of warm contrast to the white, shiplap walls. On top of each console table, a lamp with an "X" design nods to the design on the kitchen island, while a geometric sculpture adds texture and a modern element. Finally, lovely pieces of neutral artwork give the living room design some height.
