This textured, rustic backsplash makes it look as if this kitchen by Hamilton-Gray Design is fully constructed of stone. But, in fact, the quartzite material actually comes in pieces that are applied just like tile, making it a viable choice even in a home with plaster or sheetrock walls.
Bright, Open Design in Modern, Rustic-Industrial Kitchen
Designers wanted to create a bright, open look in this kitchen, so they brought in white cabinets grounded by gray countertops. For a pop of color, they decided to paint the island a light gray color. Then, they added a Neolith marble countertop to the island which, along with black matte fixtures and an apron front sink, combines the farmhouse feel with the industrial touch.
Influences of rusticity, comfort and modernity are combined to create a highly-functional entertaining kitchen. A central island includes a second dishwasher and sink, extra storage and plentiful work space. Teak countertops and shelves, chestnut flooring and European-inspired fixtures add soul while skylights, high ceilings and the spacious setting are utilitarian and contemporary.
This modern kitchen features a rustic vibe with dark wooden cabinets and brushed nickel hardware. The large kitchen island houses the dishwasher, an under-mounted sink and topped with a white quartz countertop. Two modern pendant lights provide lighting in the space.
The large rustic island centers this farmhouse kitchen and provides extra storage and prep space. An open shelf in the island keeps favorite cookbooks handy, while a pair of pendant lights illuminates the pretty white countertops.
Beautiful dark woods are used throughout the kitchen and dining room to create a warm, welcoming environment. Contemporary elements, like the pendant lights, glass tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, mix with natural pieces, such as the rattan barstools and exposed wood ceiling beams.

The homeowners were ready to update their 80-year-old home in a historic part of Nashville. The old kitchen was impossibly small and impractical, but Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri remove walls to open up the floor plan, install sleek white cabinets that contrast against the multi-colored tiled backsplash and create a large island with plenty of prep space.
