There are a lot of trends in kitchen design. All white. Open shelving. No uppers at all. Black. Gray. The list can get a little long. But I think it all may stop right here, right now with this stunningly cool kitchen. I have found my new mecca. It is traditional. It is modern. It is classic. It is timeless. It’s fresh and feels like something I haven’t seen before. And it’s really making me want to take my kitchen apart and start from scratch (don’t tell the hubby!).
Designed by Amber Interiors, already a standard barrier of California Design, this kitchen has officially set the bar for timeless kitchen design.
It is a little hard to know where to begin since I’m mostly just staring, jaw agape, but as you dig into the details you notice all the amazing design decisions tucked into one room. Amber brilliantly combined quite the variety of materials to great effect; warm woods, industrial concrete floors, vintage pendants, leather topped barstools, quartz counters with an oversized edge – they all mix and meld seamlessly to create a space that is warm, open and inviting but also modern, refined and damn sexy if you ask me.
The use of bead board cabinets and white bead board backsplash soften what could become a very modern, almost stark room. Bead board is not a choice I would think to make (no matter how many episodes of Fixer Upper I watch), yet I really appreciate it in this space. But what really had me at hello is that stunning all black storage cabinet. It’s a genius idea to reverse the color scheme, with a black exterior and a white oak back panel. It anchors the kitchen and creates a gorgeous feature wall.
Did I mention the kitchen opens up entirely to the home’s backyard? Like I said, the bar has been raised.
This kitchen really is something quite extraordinary. The neutral color palette is just pitch perfect. The styling is impeccable. But if you like this, then you really should see the whole house! Amber describe it as modern Scandinavian cottage meets LA style – and she nailed it. If you want to inject a bit of this vibe into your home scroll below to see how. I know I’m going to!
