Mixing styles creates a sophisticated industrial style kitchen in an urban London loft.
I have been a magazine junkie most of my adult life and in the last decade I have added several European journals to my list. This industrial chic urban London kitchen found its way into my ever expanding idea file for several reasons. While I tend to surround myself with vintage, I am also attracted to rooms with a juxtaposition of styles. The exquisite exposed brick walls and original wood floors are paired with sleek white cabinets and stainless steel counters. This kitchen makes me want to explore downtown loft living. The gas range top and double ovens are located in the island, where industrial stools are tucked under its curved overhang. The sink is located in the cabinet run along the brick wall, beneath the mirror. In my mind’s eye, the wall to the left of the island would also be washed brick with a few lower cabinets and open shelving, and over-sized artwork on the wall.
Imagine my surprise when I ran across a familiar kitchen online. I quickly searched my Atticmag files to find its mate. Cabinets?! A second sink is located across from the range and a wall of clean-lined, to the ceiling cabinetry provides ample storage for this open floor plan apartment. The wood floors are killer. Long contemporary handles blend into the doors and drawers. The gilded mantel mirror, lots of propped artwork, a framed chalkboard and plants soften the space and add layers of texture and interest. The quirky shaped modern bubble chandelier adds yet another layer to the design. The mixing of styles creates a sophisticated industrial chic space. I love this kitchen.
