This kitchen sink has a view of the distinct built-in living room shelving. An open wood bar counter connects the two spaces and adds visual interest to this vignette. Yellow and red patterned backsplash adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral space, connecting it to the red wall and rich wood shelving in the living room. An intricate detailed entertainment center filled with interesting wood and earthy accessories provides the focal point for the living space and the view from the kitchen sink.
Gold accents and marble countertops give this kitchen a chic, upscale look. Buttery, tufted leather makes up an intimate banquette in the breakfast nook. Glass tiles in shades of blue make up the simple backsplash for a subdued pop of color.
"Fresh flowers," Joanna Gaines, co-host of HGTV's Fixer Upper says, make a huge impact for a tiny price. Other budget updates: Throw pillows in the living room and bright dishes or tea towels in the kitchen.
The geometric shapes layered into this sophisticated kitchen become a work of art in and of themselves. A metal floating shelf crosses over the white rectangular tiles, offset by striking pitchers, a glass bottle and a pretty, graphic hand towel.
A white cafe curtain and gray tile backsplash provide a white palette for the rich wood countertop. A stainless steel kitchen sink and brushed nickel faucet break up the brown countertop for an industrial touch.
