White, Eclectic Open Plan Kitchen
Vivid colors, fanciful patterns and rustic details define this 6,000-square-foot mountain ski home in Park City, Utah. Bright, saturated fabrics and bold patterns mingle with metal finishes and woods to create a dramatic yet rustic tone. The design team seamlessly blended the client’s love of pattern and color with the ruggedness of the Park City landscape.
White, Eclectic Living and Kitchen Space with Colorful Details
Facing islands provide ample dining and seating space in this roomy kitchen and living space in Park City, Utah. Traditional rounded barstools are alternately upholstered in unexpected bright colors, showcasing the homeowner's fun and whimsical tastes. A crystal chandelier hangs amidst rustic ceiling beams, punctuating the home's eclectic design.
The 13-foot-wide kitchen in this small home does double duty: It's both the laundry room and the cook space. A clever custom table attached to the island creates family dining space and a surface for folding clothes.
An open plan kitchen and dining room has great flow for Gregg's frequent cocktail parties. Displayed on the kitchen island is one of Gregg's seashell busts. The bookshelves in the distance feature a charming display of favorite thank you notes: the ultimate preppy design moment.
In this beautifully designed small kitchen, transparent ghost chairs provide seating at an eat-in counter without taking up visual space. A farmhouse sink and chef-grade stove and refrigerator keep even the most discerning foodies happy.
Eclectic Black and White Chef's Kitchen With Subway Tile
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.
Michelle’s Interiors wanted to make sure to incorporate bold colors and details into this relatively neutral-colored kitchen. By using beautiful, bright-colored textures, furnishings and accessories this kitchen was turned into a room that boasts light and positivity.
Unique Kitchen Island Made From Department Store Display Cabinet
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.
The kitchen takes a colorful, industrial turn, showcasing Naomi’s fondness for metallics. The island is topped with an oxidized, steel countertop. The material is a unique twist on the usual granite or marble found in most kitchens. The steel top will patina over time. Its rough-hewn texture is also a pleasing contrast to the stainless steel refrigerator and brass elements in the kitchen. Cabinets in a gray-blue tone contrast with the brass pendant overhead. Naomi discovered the pair of vintage white bar stools and painted the legs gold for a finishing metallic touch.
It may be by far the most common kitchen island shape, but the rectangle isn’t your only option. Angled and even curved designs can work better in your space, like this stunning oval designed by Anthony Baratta. The oblong island, which mirrors the shape of the recessed ceiling, is a custom design built in English sycamore wood, with a Pyrolave countertop in a custom lime color and reverse-painted glass door panels.
