Here is one magnificent contemporary example of the two-toned kitchen design – the saffron yellow of the comfy kitchen islands (with a horizontal bar that allows the guest to be included in the food preparation proses) is in beautiful juxtaposition with the muted grays of the concrete base of the composition.
While white kitchens will never go out of style, we’re seeing a move towards warmer materials and a less utilitarian or expected approach. Consider the new kitchen an extension of the living and dining spaces, especially those in an open concept arrangement. The thought process is a “not so kitchen, kitchen”. Working with a cohesive colour palette and materials to achieve a sense of unity with adjacent spaces provides a connection with interior elements such as furniture, lighting and decorative details, leaving the kitchen with all the importance of function yet all the style to go along with the rest of your home.
