I know, not too long ago I was dreaming of a white kitchen. But, since I've started concepting on the farmhouse kitchen, I've been feeling a pull toward warm and cozy kitchen spaces; kitchens filled with original details and character. Maybe it's the constant requests for carrera marble and polished nickel, but much like the folks at House Beautiful, who predict a trend toward warmer, more "homey" kitchens, I am sick of slick!
"We're moving toward a more organic modernism with warm, modern materials that look vintage: slate, irregular floors, weathered concrete, natural crackle-glazed tiles that look handmade. Less slick kitchens!" — Peter Dunham
This morning I stumbled upon Elle Decor's One-of-a-Kind Kitchens and just had to share. I'd be thrilled to be the owner or designer of any of these spaces – each so cool and inviting in its own way. This is going to be a cut-and-paste post, as I have some unique lighting to source and some custom tiles to sketch!
A TILED KITCHEN WITH BERBER-STYLE CEILING
The counter and floor tiles in the kitchen of Liza Bruce and Nicholas Alvis Vega's Moroccan home were locally crafted, the cabinets are fitted with Musharabi screens, and the Berber-style ceiling is made of reeds and wood beams.
