Sometimes simple suits me best, like in this image. No real design eye has been applied here — and that’s okay by me. I’m enjoying these pieces and the elements in the space just as they are.
(Sure wish this image was larger.) We all know I’m no fan of whitewhitewhite, but there’s a pretty amazing thing happening here: the monolithic, characterless white of the kitchen is completely counterbalanced by the fantastically rich texture of the dark wooden flooring. Add to that the interesting inverse that comes in by adding the slick dark chairs and the lighter-colored but heavily textured wooden table and I’m blown away.
