Mixed Materials

I love the mixed materials in this kitchen by designer Erika Powell that was featured in the new Coastal Living. Check out her blog/website for more incredible tailored designs.

The copper range hood and sink are the standout stars. They have incredible patina and add so much warmth to the space. It's so unexpected which is why it's so fantastic. Then she mixed in polished nickel faucets and cabinet hardware with brushed stainless pendants to tie back to the appliances.

However, she didn't stop there. Most white kitchens would have white bar stools so they weren't adding too many colors. But, Erika mixed in a darker chocolate bar stool to contrast against the medium wood floors and balance the copper hood.

Glorious. The end result is a cozy, timeless kitchen were you just want to hang out. The best kind of kitchen in my opinion.

Happy Monday. Thanks for your patience while I recovered from this cold!

Susie - I love your selections. They all feel like homes, not showrooms. I am so over seeing pictures of places in which no human (or dog) can possibly live. Love the style and warmth...keep it up, girl.
