This is a very modern style kitchen. Some would say it is very sterile and industrial. Many of my clients are leaning towards modern steal furniture and fixtures. Simple lines and open floor plan. I used this example to show how the color of the walls is too stark and does not accent the beams and the loft of the ceiling. A warmer wall color would make the space more inviting and show off the warmth of the flooring and the bead board on the walls. Small changes would make this kitchen feel like a space you would like to get cooking.
