The open kitchen, perfect for entertaining, has a woodsy chic vibe with a rich color palette of brown, gray and forest green inspired by the lush landscape outside.

Bold lighting mixed with handsome subway tile make for a strong statement room. I especially love how this space ties in the hunter green of the tile with green countertops and hardware pulls for a modern twist.
This wrap around marble countertop steals the show! By keeping the rest of the room minimal and clean it allows for this statement piece to pop.
Repurposed Open Shelving Adds Storage to Remodeled Kitchen
Rather than upper cabinets for wall storage, designers opted for open shelving that was crafted out of materials that were repurposed from the home's original kitchen.
This look is a modern update on a classic with the addition of open wood shelving, slate floors, black hardware and gorgeous natural wood accents.
These perfectly painted sage cupboards go from country to chic with the addition of delicate brass hardware. Installing a marble countertop instead of butcher block turns this otherwise rustic room into a glamorous retreat.
Black cabinets don’t feel heavy when paired with a patterned floor! These tiles add necessary texture and lightness to a sultry, dark color palette.
Navy hues and deep, veined marble kitchens are popping up everywhere and there’s no question why — soothing colors paired with luxurious details would make any small galley sing. Ditch large cupboards for open storage to bring in some much-needed breathing room.
Brass bar pulls paired with a jute striped rug make for a simple yet stunning update. Even better, these delicious details could be turned around for a simple makeover in a weekend or less!

Dramatic-colored cabinets call for vibrant, vintage rugs and heavy duty brass hardware. Deep greens are very on trend right now and look great when paired with simple details such as small white floating shelves and subway tile.
Who knew that terrazzo would be making its way from office buildings into some of the finest kitchens? These surfaces are made from chips of marble set in polished concrete, making for a unique pop of color that’s full of personality — not to mention more affordable than other hard surface options out there.
