Moroccan details mix with transitional elements, creating a modern-Mediterranean style bar that's bright and airy. A navy blue quartz countertop anchors the all-white space. Glass pedant lights and a stone accent wall help define the space from the living room.
Warm wood tones, a custom copper hood and hand-painted Mexican tiles complement the Latin American artwork in this contemporary kitchen. The dynamic curved shape of the island is mimicked in the granite eating bar and curved shelves of the message/organization center.
This is a traditional kitchen with a spin -- the granite countertop unifies the colors in the antiqued lower cabinets and warm-toned upper cabinets. Pendant lights hang over the small, eat-in bar and a glass backsplash makes the cooktop a focal point.
Natural light from the windows shines under the raised Roman shades in the rich, dark environment of this contemporary living room. Metal barstools with velvet seat cushions line the bar that separates the living room and the kitchen.
A gold wet bar with art deco lamp separates a pair of navy blue striped armchairs with nailhead trim and lavender and magenta floral throw pillows. The ottoman features a large, bold pattern with navy geometric shapes. A contemporary natural wood table with copper top and stack of red books add personality to finish the design.
A soft blue wall color keeps this kitchen space looking light and open. A cutout section houses a stainless steel range hood framed by built-in white cabinets and a gray and white tile backsplash. The large white bar in the foreground has a cutout fit perfectly for storing the barstools with brass bases and wood seats.
A trio of contemporary white pendant lights hang over a Calacatta Borghini quartz-topped island. A dark quarter-sawn oak floor provides contrast to the gray and white color palette. A cherry red leather bar chair pops against the bright background. The red is repeated on the stove knobs for an extra pop in intrigue.
The spaciousness of this kitchen is highlighted by the bright color palette. A navy cabinet is a rich accent piece that draws the eye against the white surroundings. A runner rug pulls the navy coloring into the rest of the room next to the large island with eat in bar space and globe pendant lighting.
One of the most popular countertop surfaces today, engineered quartz is versatile and durable. Its nearly endless range of color options allows you to visually tie an open kitchen to the surrounding living spaces, as designer Lori Dennis did here with dark blue tones in a kitchen by SoCalContractor.
