Kitchen Balance

A new house with amazing craft. I was in a kitchen yesterday discussing a face lift renovation and all I kept thinking was how monochromatic everything appeared. I came back to the office to do a little research and stumbled on this sweet gem. This design team did a great job with balance and texture in this kitchen. So you have the smooth lime washed oak floors complimenting the washed painted finish of the cabinets. Then you have the cypress (running just three quarters of the way) up the walls and picking up the texture in the hand hewn beams in the ceiling. The play on blacks and whites with the counter tops, pendants and paint just finishes it all off. You can pull it off with similar colors. You just need to get creative and find that balance which they totally did in this example.
