For me the kitchen and bathrooms in a house need to be modern, bright and clean. The cozy elements are best used in bedrooms and living rooms where textiles can be layered on. With kitchens however, where so much food prep, washing and cooking are done, I love smooth clean surfaces like the ones in this kitchen. The simple lines and well lit corners really elevate this to near gallery quality, including a spotlit display nook right in the center of it all. Pinkish beige cabinets are a color I wouldn’t have thought to choose but with a grey backsplash they seem to fade into the lighter color of the island.
