island/shelf Sharp contrast defines the kitchen. Color, form, and materials change abruptly for an incredibly striking effect. Wood transitions to glossy white, concrete turns to marble, all wrapped up in a clean modernist package.
kitchen drawer idea Who wouldn’t love to have implements stored in a pullout like this one, in a design by Kirstin Havnaer, Hearthstone Interior Design? They are stored upright (no rummaging) and within arm’s reach of the cooktop. Via Houzz
I really like the idea of storage space to hide small kitchen appliances and keep counter space clear. I would like to utilize this idea in my future home kitchen but with grey cabinets and green marble counter tops.
