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.
That depends upon your taste! For some people, a kitchen island will be a needless expense and inconvenience, limiting movement around a modern kitchen. For others, having extra seating space is a vital aspect of the kitchen, turning it from just a food preparation space to a social setting. If you don’t have access to an outside terrace or if the dining room is further away from your modern kitchen, then an island could be an ideal addition. However, if you have a small kitchen, then trying to cram an island in could spoil the harmony of the design, which should be avoided at all costs.
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.
With its deep tones this kitchen proves that espresso brown has still not fallen out of favor in home decor. The timeless combination of espresso tones with stainless steel hardware lends itself well to dressing up a back wall with a lovely marbled backsplash and countertop. To add a bright focal point the designer has chosen to light the space with two impressive pieces. The first is the hanging chandelier composed of hundreds of oblong clear glass orbs. This, combined with the underlit ice glass bar top, provides a beautiful focus around which to center any entertaining event.
