This kitchen uses two elements I have always been a fan of: intimacy and rich colors. While using brown is the standard in kitchen remodeling, the designer has used it here very well. For me what helps really bring things together in terms of color are the blinds and the silver appliances. The blinds add a nice visual texture that the kitchen needs to avoid being monotonous, and the silver fridge and stove help break up the string of brown as well. Even though bit is a smaller space, it is not claustrophobic, so it ends up- being a great kitchen for a small family.
