This is an interesting kitchen design. It takes some classical lines and curves, and then applies them to a very modern motif. It seems that while most kitchens opt for comfortable, earthy browns and beige, this design seeks to be bold with a black and white color scheme. Now, if you are going to color your kitchen like this, you still need to have some colors that will help dilute the light a little bit. Kitchens like this can have a glaring quality if you are not careful. In the case of this kitchen, the hardwoods help absorb the glare.
