The gray tiles pick up on the marble countertops and gray shadings of surrounding cabinetry. Traditional cabinetry painted gray partners nicely with industrial elements rendered in shimmering and weathered metals. This kitchen handily illustrates how age old elements, such as Shaker style cabinets, weighty woodwork, and marble surfaces, benefit from pairing with unconventional accessories, like steel factory stools, a zinc topped island, and a whimsical chandelier crafted from silver flatware.
In kitchens, function often reigns supreme, which leaves little room for decorative flair. Consider the space above your cabinets as prime display space. You will add a fun touch to your kitchen, without taking up precious counter or storage space. Pay attention to scale when choosing items to display. Too small, and the item will virtually disappear, too tall, and it will look awkward as it skims the ceiling.
