Here are some things that I love about this year's kitchen designed by Tyler Florence.
WHY THIS WORKS
Texture and Color. I love the idea of using a different material for your island. Butcher block works perfectly. It's warm, feels lived in and can go modern or traditonal. This island is awesome. So practical with the storage and all the drawers, rolls and fits perfectly.
Contrast. LOVING the contrast of light dark. Never can go wrong with subway tile and the dark cabinetry set against the white backsplach and beams is striking.
A side office in the kitchen is so practical. What I love about this one is that it has doors that can actually close! And the chalkboard paint on the inside is genius!
Bold. The dark cabinetry in here is really stunning. Look how the white dishware pops! I don't know if I'd be brave enough to go black, but I'm all for gray. If I ever paint my white cabinets, I'm going for a dark gray.
A twist on a classic. A black cast iron sink. Love the gooseneck faucet, beautiful and practical.
Don't you love the mismatched chairs. Gorgeous use of coordinating fabrics. It makes the room not so "put together" and so welcoming. A great look and easily acheived on a budget by getting mismatched chairs and reupholstering.
