Melisande Cousin. Kitchen. November 07th , 2017.
Warm, inviting and calming, the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades, the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass, ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!
Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
In some cases, a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos, where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout, there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space, they chose the window backsplash strategy.
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.
