Dream Kitchen: Modern Mixed with European Charm

We love a clean-lined kitchen paired with warm organic textures and rustic details. Today we have a Dream Kitchen for you that perfects the look. Designed by Mollie of Design Loves Detail, the kitchen is fresh and modern but with soft accents and charming details that create warmth and character. You are going to love it.

Although bright and white, the space feels rich with subtle layering of color. Mollie chose Farrow and Ball Shaded White for the cabinetry, Benjamin Moore Boothbay Gray for the island, French White Oak on the floor, and Rift Sawn White Oak accents throughout. We love the built-in hutch in white oak. Leaving it unpainted adds warmth to the white space but also makes it feel like a statement furniture piece.

Set against the clean lines, a neutral color palette, and minimalist styling in the kitchen, this ornate Italian range stands out. It adds charm and helps create the feel of a bespoke English country kitchen. If looks beautiful paired with the minimalist hood range above it. Another detail that creates a high-end vibe in the space is that huge fridge. To read how Mollie created the look of a high-end Sub Zero for half the price, read here.

The counters are a pairing of black honed marble and Silver Macaubas quartzite. The two tones of the countertops are another subtle change in color and texture that add interest in the space. The black adds a pretty hint of drama. If you love the look of marble but are worried about it being to delicate, quartzite is a perfect option. It is a natural stone that is more durable than marble. As long as you buy a high quality piece (without added resin), it does not etch.

Layers of organic texture add a lot of depth in the kitchen. Metal barstools, rattan pendants, white ceramic bowls, and lots of raw wood accessories like spoons, rolling pins, and cutting boards create a rustic beauty. We love styling with wood in the kitchen because the pieces are useful but the wood grain and subtle differences in wood tones also double as art.

The raw industrial wood table and rattan chairs tie in beautifully in the adjacent dining space.

The entire design is so fresh and beautiful, right?
