Eclectic Kitchen and Living Space
Karen Palmer Photography
Industrial elements: Exposed antique brick walls Stainless steel on the appliances, vent hood and island top Open reclaimed-wood shelves Streamlined faucet Wood floors Other elements: Simple Shaker-style cabinets with brass cup pulls bring farmhouse style to the mix. Clean and light Frosty Carrina quartz countertops brighten the room and add polish. Teal paint on the island and terra-cotta paint on the door are unexpected dollops of cheer. Counter stools mix in classic Scandinavian modern style. Designer tip: Pendant lights over an island or peninsula are not a requirement. If you want a clear, uncluttered view through the kitchen, skip them. In this room, the clients wanted an unbroken view through to the focal point provided by the vent hood and surrounding shelves.
