Melisande Cousin. Kitchen. October 28th , 2017.
Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.

In some cases, a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos, where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout, there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space, they chose the window backsplash strategy.
