Here are some new ideas to add to the ever popular French farmhouse look and the more recent trend for a strikingly, industrial chic designs.
Meredith’s Idea for a Super Stylish Kitchen
Meredith says that the key to achieving this striking style is to mix “… textures, finishes and vintage pieces juxtaposed against a modern framework”. She speaks about one example she designed for Christine Dovey. Unusually for a kitchen, the color scheme was based on a color combination of pink and gold. Meredith incorporated an antique mirror into the kitchen design as this “…..added an unexpected glamour” Additionally, she built in open shelves which are perfect for showing of a collection of beautiful objects. This collection made a powerful visual connection between the kitchen and the rest of Christine Dovey’s unique home. This design approach resulted in a highly personalized and customized kitchen made to reflect the client’s character and individuality.
A Fusion of Modern and Traditional Styles
This concept creates a timeless kitchen but one that doesn’t appear too traditional. To achieve this super stylish kitchen look, Meredith recommends that “Contrasting colors, unusual lighting, decorative finishes and a mix of hardware are great ways to take a classic look and give it a modern edge”. For originality, she suggests trying different colored doors on upper and lower cupboards. Another of Meredith’s ideas for combining traditional and modern elements in an exciting way, is to introduce a large decorative chandelier into a super sleek modern kitchen. This creates a stunning and unexpected contrast.
‘Simply Scandinavian’ Super Stylish Kitchens return
According to Meredith, the simple Scandinavian kitchen will return to become a favorite in super stylish kitchen league tables! She says that the characteristic plain, matte cabinet fronts are still very popular, but to make these more unusual add brass features and lively patterned fabrics to ensure the kitchen is extra welcoming.
