Greenwich Village DuplexContemporary Kitchen, New York
Mis-matched flooring was replaced with honed travertine marble and river stone in the entry. Honed black granite counter tops contrast the light bamboo cabinetry. Glass mosaic tile as back-splash accent picks up the colors in palette in a decorative pattern. Curvalinear swivel bar stools in micro-suede for the eat-in bar area.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Positioning and Floorplan: If you have the luxury of building a home from the ground up, it’s important to give priority to the position of your kitchen. Since the kitchen is a symbol of wealth and prosperity, be sure that it’s far removed from the front and back doors of the home or else the good “chi” or energy will easily escape. Quite often the kitchen is placed in sight alignment with the front door. This is also NOT auspicious. The kitchen represents the “fire element” and will be nourished in both the East and South. North Western positioning is strongly discouraged.
