A modern country estate was the inspiration for this kitchen concept by Designer Jillian Straky of Housewears. The room features high ceilings, white walls and black framed windows with fabulous views of green countryside. The warmth and practicality of natural oak herringbone floors, open shelving and painted graphite shaker cabinetry evokes a grand but relaxed feel.
Natural oak shelving flank a structured matte black range hood and brings casual ease to the design. Shelves are styled with ethnic inspired bowls, white tableware and sleek, modern pottery. The gorgeous white countertop and geometric mosaic backsplash add pattern and airiness to the dark millwork. Riobel’s new Azure Bridge faucet in matte black is a star in front of a farmhouse sink in matte gold, contrasting beautifully against the light countertop and backsplash. The geometry of the backsplash is mimicked in the Matteo pendant lights. Industrial pulls and bar stools in brushed gold are a warm complement to the rich grey cabinetry.
This sophisticated kitchen is refined yet effortlessly comfortable and we love the combination of the less formal, natural light wood paired with deep, rich charcoal. The look remains dramatic with white countertops and finishes in matte black and brushed gold.
