This is a very cool, very modern design that uses sharp, clean colors to produce a very sheik kitchen space. I imagine that this design could easily appear in a loft in your downtown area. There are several specific elements that make this design work so well. The dark wood flooring is where we start. It adds a nice, brown texture to the color pallet, and as we continue up from the floor that brown is balanced with some stark silver and black coloring, from the appliances to the island countertop. The white walls help lighten everything up, as do the large windows.
