Kitchen contemporary-kitchen


These young clients wanted a modern kitchen. Since their home is located in a heavily wooded area, our concept was to take cues from nature. We started with the simple slab door front cabinets, and then brought in organic, “barky” looking glass back splash and rice paper laminated in glass for the upper cabinet fronts. The granite has very bold crystals which we thought resembled sliced tree trunks. The sheers in the adjoining room soften the wall of windows, and give a hint to the tree shapes beyond.

To add some visual excitement, we played off the angle of the opposite wall for this Franklin kitchen’s island. We elevated the glass to bar height, and it appears to float in the space. Our clients report that it’s not only used to sit at, but works wonderfully for entertaining. Since it’s raised, it works well for a buffet surface, but doesn’t interfere with the cook.

Many manufacturers make this type of bar pull. At the lower end of the price range you can try Amerock:

I'm pretty sure that Hafele, Sugatsune, Mockett, and others have versions as well.

I think you may be seeing light reflecting off the finish. It looks to be a low gloss finish, when light is casting across it, it gives the effect you may be seeing.

Could paint your cabinets in this tone of brown and use a nice neutral backsplash and then go for more color on walls. I like the vertical orientaton of this backsplash.
