Combining gray and black with warm wood accents to create a modern yet welcoming kitchen for family and friends to gather. The thought of an all gray kitchen with black accents would not usually conjure up visions of warm moments spent with family and friends. However, this kitchen has been able to take this very modern color palette and create an inviting space.
The vanilla paint color warms the gray painted cabinetry on the surrounding walls. Touches of black can a found in other areas such as the range hood and the wall accessories.
The stainless steel of the appliances has a repeated in the cabinetry hardware and the end caps on the legs of the island. All of these cold colors and surfaces have a warmed by the addition of beautifully grained wood furniture and pops of color introduced through bowls of fruit, colorful artwork, and fresh flowers. The island offers a built-in bookshelf to house cookbooks and a wine rack to store those vintage bottles of vino.
