As a mom of a teenage daughter, I have to keep up with so many trends. One I have quickly learned of is the art of mismatching. My stylish daughter can somehow make a powder blue sock on one foot and a tangerine orange sock on the other look good! I no longer think twice in the morning when I can’t find a matching black sock! This is also true for your kitchen. I know you are saying to yourself, I’ll believe it when I see it! This beautiful modern farmhouse kitchen we designed really sells the trend of mismatching. Especially for those who ordinarily go for the classic look. Cabinets The beautiful upper cabinets are bronze stained, while the base cabinets are a light gray with a brush stroke finish. Look how the dark cabinets make the light ones look fresh and crisp. The handles have been left matching, so that there is still an element of visual cohesion and aesthetic appeal. Countertops The black walnut butcher block island contrasts against the ocean shell countertops selected for the perimeter, adding a bold look that really appeals to me. Storage The pull out shelves and spice racks implemented in this feature-packed kitchen helps keep the clutter at bay. I hope I’ve made you a believer in mismatching! The distinct contrast adds lovely depth to your overall scheme, no matter what style of kitchen you are having us create for you!
