Italian design is synonymous with style and this kitchen by Italian manufacturer Cesar is certainly not short on style. Kalea, as it is called, breaks away from more traditional kitchen layouts and creatively redefines sizes and dimensions. It features doors of different heights and widths, alongside versatile, dynamic open storage units, all of which help to create a contemporary yet playful appeal. However, the kitchen has an elegant feel to it due to the textured and refined finish achieved through the use of rough oak, which is used in conjunction with gloss or soft silk-effect lacquers. Featuring pullout doors and the swivel Swing and Tandem systems, the Kalea kitchen makes it possible to fully exploit all the space available. We’d love to hear how you rate this kitchen so please let us know.
Yellow is one of those hues that seems to capture the joyful bliss of summer to perfection, and this is especially true if you add a light, mellow shade or even a cool pastel yellow backdrop to the kitchen. The farmhouse-style kitchen below combines this bright yellow magic with a dark gray backsplash and countertops to craft a captivating and relaxing kitchen. The flood of natural light helps add to the cheery ambiance. Here is another kitchen that takes the traditional notion of gray as the principal color in the room and yellow as the one used in moderation and flips it on its head. When it comes to the kitchen, there is absolutely no reason to hold back on yellow; even in case of cool, contemporary kitchens. Gray here brings definition to the white cabinets and makes a big impact even though it is used in a very limited fashion.
Thinking of giving your kitchen a refined and refreshing makeover as you head into summer and fall? Few colors out there bring that perfect balance between sophistication and eye-catching elegance like gray and yellow. A combination that is quickly catching on across the globe largely because of the new-found love for gray in the last few years, it is still a novelty when it comes to the contemporary kitchen. While gorgeous gray and yellow bedrooms and stylish living rooms with this classy color duo are far easier to find, kitchens still seem to be largely stuck in the ‘white along with bright color’ mode.
