This eat-in kitchen features a trio of gold pendant lights above the island with a butcher block countertop. A gray settee provides seating at the island, which doubles as a prep station. A gray chevron tile backsplash shimmers behind the stainless steel oven.
Neutral gray paint and plum-colored wallpaper on an adjacent wall bring drama and texture to this small eating nook. Three wicker chairs complement the cozy square table, which is functional for eating and entertaining under a soft birdcage pendant light.
White subway tile with gray grout lines the walls of this chef's kitchen. Gray and white patterned floor tiles add interest while still keeping with the color palette. Gold midcentury modern chandeliers inject a dose of glamour into the space.
To give a London kitchen a striking focal point (not to mention acres of built-in storage), designer Egon Walesch had a haberdashery display cabinet from a department store cut down to size to create a unique kitchen island. “Toughened (or tempered) glass provides an excellent work surface, and the drawers, previously used for storing gloves, scarves and hats, provide excellent space to accommodate and display treasured crockery and table linens,” says Walesch.
Shades of gray and white are used throughout the Brother Vs. Brother kitchen in the cabinets, countertops, backsplash and checkered flooring. A accent wall of navy blue brings a burst of color to the space.
A trio of shiny gold pendant lights illuminates the island, which features a wooden countertop and prep sink. Simple white cabinets with no pulls and a shimmery chevron backsplash complete the eclectic look.
Geometric patterns (octagons are the star shape) and the color pink are the unifying elements of this kitchen's jazzy design. Graphic tile by Walker Zanger decorates the floor. And playful twists are everywhere: goat legs for these upholstered stools, hot pink tassels on the motorized shades.
This spacious kitchen blends industrial ceiling exposure with contemporary touches, like the gray and white marble countertops and sleek brown cabinets. Funky coconut shell pendant lights hang above the white marble kitchen island, which includes glossy black black stools that allow for casual dining.
