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.
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.
