Marvella Breton. Kitchen. October 30th , 2017.
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.
The most noticeable and iconic feature of this new kitchen series is the ‘frame door’ that combines a dash of Shaker furniture style and traditional kitchen door design with contemporary refinement and minimal modernity. The fusion is simply spectacular as these understated additions give the kitchen an entirely new look and set it apart from other contemporary compositions. Even in a crowd, Carattere is instantly recognizable thanks to this signature feature that is available with two different variants. Whether it is with fixed handles or with grip integrated into the cabinet door, these frame doors definitely make an immediate impact.
Another example of great use of lower cabinets in a traditional kitchen. Here, there is much less stainless steel, but it works so well with the cool colors throughout the kitchen, like the backsplash and the glass on the doors. The grey on the island also pulls the silvery hues together very nicely!
Finding the right color for your kitchen island is far simpler than you think. This first step is to settle on both the style and the color scheme of the kitchen itself. Once you have this sorted, most of the work is done and your choices are instantly narrowed down. A kitchen with too many colors looks cluttered and hence it is best to pick a color for the island that is repeated elsewhere. Of course, a left-field choice is always welcome in an eclectic kitchen, but it does not work in most other kitchens. Whether it is stunning teal island in a polished contemporary kitchen or one in sunny yellow at the heart of a traditional kitchen, keeping the cabinets and the backdrop as neutral as possible helps immensely as well.
