This beautiful, eco modern kitchen is the focal point for the house. With natural elements, such as the live edge wood shelving, the natural green and yellow of the walls and the wood trim around the doors and windows, and the modern touches like the clean lines and smooth edges of the cabinets and the countertop, this design perfectly encompasses the homeowners' desire for a kitchen that reflects their love for nature as well as their attraction to the modern design style.
These homeowners were very interested in bringing their love for the natural beauty of the outdoors inside and mixing it with the modern design style they already love. This photo shows that they succeeded. The large window overlooking the sink brings in plenty of natural light, allowing nature into the space. The live edge wood shelving shows the raw beauty of nature, while the colors on the wall and the backsplash are earthy shades of green, yellow and gray. These natural elements blend perfectly with the clean lines of the countertop and the modern pendant light, bringing the couple's ideas of an eco modern design to life.
Designers created a custom beverage bar with light gray cabinets to complement the interior doors. Above the cabinets is a chalk board wall that adds a touch of trendy pizzaz, while the live edge, reclaimed wood shelves add rustic charm to the space.

The homeowners are very environmentally conscious, and, naturally, wanted that consciousness to show up in the design for their kitchen, so they insisted on a design that blended natural elements with modern elements to create an eco modern feel in their home. The design includes wood shelves with live edges to bring in some of the raw beauty of nature into the space, while the straight, clean lines of the cabinets and shelves add modern flair to this stylish kitchen.
If you love the open flow and exposed structures of loft-style spaces but don’t happen to live in an actual loft, no worries: It’s easy to give any room in any house an industrial edge.
