This subdued driftwood gray feels masculine — like the kitchen equivalent of a flannel suit.
Can a driftwood gray kitchen be gender specific? Or would it always be neutral? For me, this gray kitchen has a definite masculine feeling. Perhaps it’s the sheer beefiness of all the upper and lower cabinets packed in below the soffit line. Or, perhaps it’s the gray-washed cabinets with a black glaze, the neutral mosaic tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. It’s an interesting combination of a monochromatic scheme that gives an otherwise traditional kitchen a slightly modern edge.
Someone might think ‘why gray with this style? This would be a farm more conventional kitchen if all the cabinets were white. But the gray makes sense on a bright day when bright natural light floods the space via a large skylight in the vaulted ceiling.
With the cooktop in the island, pendant lights are expected. As a result of the ceiling height, these are deftly suspended from a set of handsome but unobtrusive rails. The wealth of appliances including two dishwashers, a warming drawer and a TV built in over the ovens bespeak a big budget. While this kitchen is not up-to-the minute design wise, it offers some nice ideas and an interesting color treatment on the cabinets. The color of the floor here is another story entirely.
