Mixing styles creates a sophisticated industrial kitchen.
I’ve been a magazine junkie most of my adult life and in the last decade I’ve added several European journals to my list. This industrial chic London kitchen found its way into my idea file for several reasons. While I surround myself with vintage, I’m also attracted to rooms with a juxtaposition of styles. The exposed brick walls and original wood floors paired with sleek white cabinets and stainless steel counters make me want to explore loft living. In my mind’s eye, the wall to the left of the island was also washed brick, with a few lower cabinets and open shelving.
Imagine my surprise when I ran across a familiar kitchen online, and searched my files to find its mate. A second sink and a wall of clean-lined, to the ceiling cabinetry provides ample storage for this open floor plan apartment. Long handles blend into the doors and drawers. The gilded mantel mirror, propped artwork, a framed chalkboard and plants soften the space and add layers of interest. The quirky shaped modern chandelier adds yet another. The mixing of styles creates a sophisticated industrial chic space.
