This ceiling high composition mixes in bright white tiles, which accentuate the deep and light gray tiles cued by the wall color, painted floor, steel fittings, and charcoal cabinetry. Bring in flashes of red and warm wood to take the chill off cooler grays. In this kitchen, polished black marble countertops along the perimeter supply a counterpoint to light cabinet finishes and a marble tile backsplash, which is anchored by rows of metal tiles laid in a basket weave pattern.
To make up for lost island storage, new cabinetry stretches to the ceiling. Light walls serve as a quiet backdrop for strong architectural elements, pine cabinets, and an island with a 2 inch thick mahogany top. These elements, along with the cabinetrys distressed finish and the dark warmth of the beveled walnut wood floors, combine to create an old French feel, which blends with the rest of the home.
