I love the lack of strong color contrast, the overall monochromatic look. It's calming, but lots of visual interest to keep from being boring. Love how the dark floor anchors the space without screaming color.
Also love how the handles/knobs in the space don't draw attention to themselves. . ETA... and the kitchen lights, they are just spots in the ceiling, not those huge noticeable pot lights and other light fixtures. The spot fixtures seem to disappear into the ceiling.
Really a nice kitchen!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Indexlady,

My only complaint would be the Louis XV fateuils look like they sit too low to be of any use near a breakfast/center table.( which could have been done by the photographer's stylist, not the decorater). The overall look is quite nice, and certainly timeless.

I was in a home last year where the woman had a breakfast nook with a beautiful high back settee and two french style chairs in front it. The only problem was that the settee was way too low to be comfortable at the table. It looked gorgeous though.
