It's been quite a while that I featured a kitchen in my weekly 'Why this room caught my eye' blog series but today I am drawn by this fabulous kitchen for its excellent design. It is a great example of a combination of two styles, something that seems ambiguous at the first sight, but perfectly works when thoughtfully put together. The cold, industrial stainless steel fronts with the vibrant, warm kilim rug for example - a great way to create visual contrast and interest. But let me put it together in three short bullet points:
- Stainless Steel Kitchen Fronts: I love stainless steel kitchen fronts, especially when combined with other materials for the worktop as for example wood or stone/marble. When choosing stainless steel fronts, I prefer to opt for so-called smudge-proof surfaces that don't show fingerprints etc.
- Vintage Kilim Rug: I have never thought of a vintage kilim rug for a kitchen. But it works so well in this example, especially as it is juxtaposed to the modern, clean and almost industrial look of the stainless steel kitchen fronts.
- Adjustable Sconces: How about opting for an alternative to the so often used fluorescent tubes above kitchen worktops that disperse unpleasant light and love to flicker after a while? I like the idea of adjustable sconces as here showcased. You can adjust them to your current needs and highlight certain areas of your workplace. Smart and good looking!
Speaking of kitchens I would also like to share with you the video of the food blogger event that I had organized for Siemens Home Appliances two weeks ago. I gathered some of Germany's finest food and lifestyle bloggers for a fun event in our cookingLounge in Munich. See how fun it was in this little video (and hear me speak German):
