With this kitchen design you can almost smell the rich oak and mahogany that the color scheme here implies. But is it is not just about colors, it is also about texture. I have found that there are two main types of kitchen design: the darker, richer style and the well lit, golden style. They are both distinctive for different reasons, and I would place this design in the dark, rich category. It is very easy on the eyes, and while this sort of color scheme runs the risk of making the room too dark, the use of marble and metal helps lighten up the space considerably.
