While the look of this modern kitchen almost seems unfinished, the bare wood is a highlight of the bright space. At first it evokes memories of a high school shop class, but the chevron-style backsplash brings just enough of a color scheme to deepen the space and bring out the natural, unstained colors of the modern kitchen cabinets.
The cork-like coloring and grain of the bar stools atop cast iron footings accent the space and add a touch of rawness. Thin silver and glass pendant lights present a sleek line in an otherwise broad space. Large plate-glass windows allow the perfect amount of light in to accent the space and highlight its openness.
Color blocking, the use of bright contrasting colors on an otherwise bland background, is the key to making this space jump out at the viewer. Clear glass pendant-style light fixtures provide lighting without detracting from the intended focus of the color blocks. Cleverly placed white accessories (in this case a tea set) add a bit of dimension to the foreground to separate the island space from the back wall.
The colour will come from the odd decorative feature or flowers, not from the major elements of the modern kitchen. Kitchen islands are a nice feature, which allows you to include modernist stools and add more functionality to the kitchen for coffees and light bites. When lighting is used, it tends to be better to use recessed lights that are built into the kitchen fittings.
