What color should a kitchen be? O more precisely, what color should MY kitchen be? That's a great question in my opinion. My theory is that a kitchen should be a (not exactly blank) slate for a great art collection, a room that fits the owner's personality and culinary needs. It should be great function with great form and then... there should be ART and COLOR!
This kitchen looks like a blank slate to me, so many ways to dress it up and give it some personality. If only they hadn't taken the photo before the work was done. Even some black and white photography would have been an improvement... now it comes across as sterile and the marble reads as cold.
This is an interesting choice with lots of black outlining. I have the urge to look a little closer than this photo allows, and I'm curious about the gate in the foreground but the beauty of this kitchen is the commitment they've made to making an original statement. I think it's charming.
