This kitchen design has an immediate impact, but has the traditional nature of the home is maintained.
The marriage between a traditional type and someone with more contemporary values will require balance and compromise.
The block-like form of the Carrara marble island is the main visual feature of the design. The breakfast bar extends out from this, creating contrast. Colours are kept minimal, with stainless steel and dark wood cabinetry.
Along with the marble, this gives a look that fits an older house, despite it being quite contemporary.
