Stained woods and washes of color create a signature look, whether you opt for an ultra-light or a more saturated hue. Classic farmhouse kitchens, with their familiar forms, never go out of style. Or, if you’re going for all-out glamour, opt for a soft blush palette, floor-to-ceiling palladian windows and plenty of shimmering accents.
The modern farmhouse is a comforting trend that takes cues from the past and streamlines them for today’s farm-to-table cook. Apron-front sinks reflect a hard-working history, while furniture-style cabinetry in muted greys creates a serene workspace. Polished chrome and classic marble add visual interest at the countertop level.
Designers are using clean lines and barely-there neutrals in a quest for simpler spaces. Mixed textures, whitewashed woods, and open shelving create quietly elegant rooms where architectural details and glamorous lighting add intimacy. The simple forms and elegant good looks of the sinks and faucets in this kitchen disguise their efficiency, making this space as hardworking as it is drop-dead gorgeous.
