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.
The worktop is the most important surface in any modern kitchen, and it needs to be extremely functional. There are plenty of materials that could be used for the worktop which combine this functionality with physical beauty. For example, polished granite is hard to scour and ages well, while hardwood is easy to clean.
Try to give the impression that only natural light is being used, and it will add to the overall effect. For decoration, there are a number of superb options for modern kitchen wallpaper, which will not be damaged by cooking smoke and will add some charming patterns to bare walls. In larger spaces, you might also consider an open plan kitchen.
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.
