Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I like the idea of a stripe-y cabinet material -- maybe not so striped as zebra-wood, but even the laminate that I used in the laundry room has some nice dimensionality.
marble is the wrong surface material, but a Corian-type that looks like marble would work nicely with the brown cabinets. Clean yet warm
I like the mix of glass doors and wood, and the minimalist high-tech lighting
and open shelving is a nice add, and a good place to add warmth if the cabinets aren't too overwhelming
stripes like these.
