The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.
While in all the above kitchen designs we have seen a presence of vivid tones and glittering surfaces that draw your attention the last one in the collection tones down the ‘oomph’ with natural shades and sober surfaces that stand out in their own unique way. A fantastic kitchen plan for those who like the less ‘glitzy’ variants this kitchen is spacious graceful craftily built and employs neutral colors to create a tranquil setting. Natural lighting and a lovely rug at its heart further highlight its exquisiteness.
There is no doubt that this kitchen is stunning and the mix of modern and traditional is so seamless! The center cooking area looks like it belongs in a professional chef’s kitchen and the stove blends right in with the cabinets. The result: the island stands as a whole like a kitchen within a kitchen. Even the cabinet pulls match the handles on the oven – it’s brilliant.
The small window seat can also provide a welcome break from the wall of shelves and cabinets in the kitchen ushering in some much needed contrast. The throw pillows cushions and fabric of the window seat also bring textural change to a space that is otherwise dominated by wood tile and metallics. Whether you use it as a after-school hangout for your kids (as you keep an eye on them) or as a wonderful conversation nook the small window seat in the kitchen comes in mighty handy.
The L-shaped counter of this kitchen allowed Jordan Iverson to design it with long and narrow windows instead of backsplashes. The windows meet in the corner and offer a refreshing and continuous view of the garden. There‘s plenty of space left for storage cabinets and shelves.
Increasingly white marble countertops are the surfaces of choice in most kitchens and these work beautifully when combined with an island in blue. Islands in darker shades of blue steal the spotlight in traditional and coastal kitchens while those clad in lighter chic bluish-gray shades feel at home in modern and refined spaces. Combine these with kitchen cabinets in white and you have a dashing cheerful kitchen.
