The homeowners wanted an all white kitchen that is stylish and functional for their family. To achieve this goal, designers added a bit of texture with custom cabinetry, and a splash of glimmer with a metallic and white, penny round tile backsplash. For function, plenty of storage was added with ceiling height cabinets, dual kitchen islands and plenty of counter space. These elements blend together to give the homeowners the kitchen of their dreams.
Contemporary Southwestern Kitchen with Earthy Tones
Earthy tones create a warm and inviting space in this contemporary kitchen with a southwestern . A row of glowing, copper toned pendant lights hang over a bright white dining table. A brown and white mosaic tile backsplash adds to the southwestern vibe.
Cabinets, Tiles and Floating Shelves Create California Coastal Vibe in Kitchen
Horizontal lines carried through the cabinetry, tile work and floating shelves unify the design elements of this California coastal-style kitchen. Benjamin Moore's "Blue Suede Shoes" provides the bold color to the cabinets and island base and is balanced by the sleek white tiles on the backsplash behind the stove and around the windows and the white paneled, vaulted ceiling.
Contemporary Eat-In Kitchen With Bold Blue Dining Chairs
This kitchen features cabinetry comprised of three coordinating finishes with a quartzite countertop and glass mosaic backsplash. A small dining table creates an eat-in space, and bright blue chairs add a pop of color.
Ceiling Beams add architectural interest and coordinate with the darkly stained lower cabinets. Having two light fixtures over the island gives the space a sense of scale and the tile backsplash and colorful rug add character and a touch of personality. Gray bar chairs provide seating for the kitchen island and a nifty display shelf provides storage/display options.
Instead of a space with a traditional kitchen island, designers opted to split the feature and, instead, had two islands installed in the kitchen. This configuration gives the homeowners more counter space, more storage and drastically increases the function and flow of the kitchen.
Floor-to-ceiling cabinets provide much-needed storage, while the blue island adds a punch of color and the perfect spot for eating and doing homework. The entire space is designed to be family friendly, but still embraces luxurious materials, like granite countertops and mirrored tile backsplash.
Contemporary Kitchen Features Built-In Breakfast Bar
To save space in this home, the breakfast bar is a built-in structure with a display shelf. Beside the bar, a steel column is covered in colorful mosaic tile that matches the kitchen backsplash. Recycled teak cabinetry lends warmth to the contemporary room.
With four boys from 12 to 17 (and dog Lucy), downsizing from a 4700 square foot home to a 2600 square foot one, meant that Elizabeth and Curt Nesbitt had to be smart about their space. Their stunning, contemporary Sullivan's Island home on the lush green marsh of the Intracoastal Waterway benefits from an airy, open living room, dining room and kitchen on the home's second floor. Floor to ceiling windows let the light flood in and make the space appear even more expansive. Designer Jenny Keenan worked with the Nesbitts on the smart, chic design of their spacious-feeling home.
This is a kitchen a chef would love, with tons of counter space and a kitchen island for preparing and gathering guests.

Globe fixtures provide tons of light and a modern touch.
The gorgeous kitchen pairs sleek walnut cabinets with stylish floating shelves for a clean, contemporary look. Three large windows fill the space with natural light while also providing a seamless connection between the outdoors and indoors.
Large, neutral tiles ground the open, eat-in kitchen, where warm wood cabinets combine with cool gray countertops. Upper glass cabinets add an airiness to the space, while comfortable armchairs surround the sleek round dining table.
