From antique we move on to the colorful and playful world or retro. The magnetism of the 60‘s and 70‘s – decades the changed the course of the world, is perfectly reflected in the Northstar lineup from Elmira. And the undisputed star of this delightful kitchen extravaganza is the series of Northstar fridges that come in eight different colors. They are bound to be the talking point of any space they adorn and seem completely at home even in a polished modern kitchen. Searching for something even more exhilarating? Then the Model 1952 fridge with skulls, flames and a fiery hot presence should satisfy – maybe exceed – your quest for ‘something bold‘!
Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90‘s ‘cubicle‘ trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.
Black and white kitchens have been around forever and it is a color scheme that works with almost any style and theme. But today, we shift our focus to kitchens clad in gray and black that move away from the mundane and feel like a breath of fresh air. It is not about filling your kitchen completely with black, but about using it cleverly to make a visual difference.
A kitchen in bluish-gray leads the pack here with other lighter hues of gray following closely behind. When choosing gray as the principle color in the contemporary kitchen, it is best to pick a cooler and lighter shade as it give the space an inviting, light-filled and upbeat vibe. Add in white countertops, bar stools, backsplash or other accent features to create visual interest and contrast.
If wood is not your thing and you still wish to inject some colorful zest into the gray and white kitchen, then smart cabinets in pastel hues might be worth considering. These dashing additions are perfect for retro, vintage and eclectic kitchens. Hot metallic finishes, bold pendants in black or even a colorful backsplash can do the trick when used right.
