The discussion about style is often a controversial and touchy subject even among the best interior designers on the planet. While some are obvious and distinct, others have blurred boundaries and a multitude of individual elements borrowed from other styles. At times, we tend to recognize style by the visual in front of us rather than sticking strictly to the conventional definitions. Contemporary kitchens seem to be similar in nature. They are epitomized by the use of high-end appliances and a design that seems both assertive and ahead of its time.
We did talk about the minimalist appeal and the space-savvy design of contemporary fireplaces, and the three kitchens below showcase this aspect in a truly mesmerizing fashion. The first kitchen in white utilizes the fireplace as a sculptural focal point that wows you instantly and gives the kitchen a fiery, dynamic backdrop. The second contemporary kitchen clad in marble turns the cool fireplace with a Calacatta marble surround into a feature that binds together the cozy conversation zone. And even if you want to usher in a hint of rustic magic into the contemporary kitchen, the sleek fireplace fits in elegantly!
Metallics are an undeniably hot trend in home design, and they’ve continued their stay in the ‘hot trends’ chart for a few seasons now. While brass and stainless steel definitely find more space in the modern kitchen, the warm allure of copper is not something to be ignored either. The last few years have seen a growing number of homeowners and designers embrace copper to revitalize a kitchen space and give it that inviting and glittering allure. From the classic kitchens that showcase styles such as farmhouse and rustic to contemporary delights that are sleek and stylish, copper finds a place in every kitchen.
Picking the right style for the kitchen can be a challenging task even for the best of design experts at times. Designing a perfect kitchen is all about bringing together form and function in an effortless and almost organic manner. This is obviously easier said than done!
So what exactly is eclectic style? There is a popular misconception going around that just lazily throwing random things and colors around constitutes an eclectic look. The truth could not be more far off. Eclectic style is all about expressing yourself without being bound by any existing style. Yes, it involves carefully collecting the most meaningful items in your own life and then bringing them together to make the perfect visual sense. But that is not the same as random and meaningless design. With that in mind, craft your eclectic kitchen by visualizing the end result well ahead.
