Kitchen / January 30, 2018 / Clara Mcclelland.
Two-toned kitchens and warm natural selections – like clay, copper, gold, henna, and ginger are becoming a hot choice selection for next season. Nature influence and reflections in coloring may be expected to have a strong stand next season – from the terracotta colored soil up to the green hues of the wilderness. There are signs that for the third year in a row the dark hues and tonalities will have a significant presence in the modern kicked color palette.
British designer-craftsman Sebastian Cox had designed series of kitchens for the English brand DeVol that they like to call “Urban – rustic” a very suitable name for this intriguing and artistic composition. Here are some examples of this unique aesthetics. Here we have contemporary and fashionable design elements (like lighting solution and material combinations) and high-tech appliances all clad and presented in natural and rustic style arrangement of wood and ceramic tiles.
Another color design approach is the usage of natural and earthly color shades in a contemporary setting. The inspiration from nature represented by the highly attractive veneers – one in white glazed oak and other in Brazil glazed oak, take a central stage of the design, giving a unique note to the modern functional composition.
Woven coppiced-beech panels – a typical Cox touch, are used on the backs of some of the cabinets small design elements like drawers and sink unit are adorned with round copper-lined holes for opening, while the cupboards have little wooden knobs made from matching wood. Combining dynamics and expressive materials palette: copper, wood, marble, and glass; the designers entwined the rustic charm of a cottage with the high functionality requirements of modern life.
