Imagine a practical yet unpredictable kitchen fit for some serious foodies. Between the striated marble backsplash and the butcher block floating shelves, the thoughtful blend of materials transformed this kitchen into a fun place to cook and entertain guests.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A stainless steel backsplash, shelf and hood along with a tiled backsplash take this kitchen from plain to lovely and layered.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Use Navy Blue
The high-gloss version looks sleek and design minded in this modern kitchen.
Navy is this year's black. When black seems too masculine or gloomy, navy will do in a pinch to add neat and preppy charm. It looks especially good paired with white upper cabinets.Color Guide: How to Use Navy Blue
