Creating welcoming warmth within the flowing spaces of open-layout floorplans is important—and sometimes difficult to achieve. Designer Brett Mickan turned to color to do the trick in this Sydney, Australia kitchen. “The deep green hue makes the walls recede so the pieces within the room stand out.

Industrial accents in this contemporary kitchen (the stainless steel range, teardrop pendant lights) blend seamlessly with softer elements (green mosaic tile backsplash, white cabinetry) to create a truly stunning, totally chic effect.
