This week’s Tasty Tuesday is forgoing food. Instead we have a killer recipe for a show-stopping kitchen. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Polished brass has been making a serious comeback in the design world, but it’s usually stayed out of the kitchen. Until now. The glam factor of the golden hue has moved into the heart of the home, and why not?! It’s where we spend the majority of our time so we might as well make it fabulous, right?
I’m particularly smitten with the bronze hood featured in the jaw-dropping apartment in the first image above. The home was designed by the team from Workstead and was featured in Dwell Magazine last year.The designers dotted bronze throughout the otherwise minimal kitchen. It’s on the knobs of the range, on door pulls and on that amazing faucet. Workstead actually had to have the modern fixture replated in polished bronze, as it originally only came in chrome. I’m in love.
By mixing the gold accents with a bright white color palette it feels fresh rather than nostalgic. As the other examples show, classic materials like marble countertops, subway tile or iconic modern furniture make the bronze features stand out, in a good way. Suddenly gold cabinets feel totally now!
As much as I wish I could, I won’t be adding a custom bronze hood to the loft anytime soon, but I’d still love to brighten my kitchen with a bronze-colored accent or two.
Here are a few of my latest favorites:
What do you think? Would you bring gold into your kitchen? If so, how?
