This inspiring kitchen is like a breath of fresh air, with so many light but natural tones. The abundance of light colors seems to work so well because of the variation in shades on different surfaces, and also because the whitewashed stone wall combines with the natural wood features to create a very earthy spring or summertime look. As always, adding a bit of plant life, flowers in this case, adds a really nice touch to a room.
Wow. This kitchen is so bold with all the black tiles for the backsplash wall, and the black countertops. The natural stain on the wood drawers really pops against the dark. Speaking of the drawers, this kitchen really packs in a lot of drawers and cabinets in a relatively small space, adding to it’s appeal.
A sort of Scandinavian country / modern style kitchen, with natural lumber used for open shelving above the sink. This style is both cozy and elegant when done properly, as it is here.

The white tile backsplash and, of course, the green plants are fantastic additions to this space.
For those of you who love the ornate styles, here is this gorgeous Spanish villa inspired kitchen, with granite countertops, light and dark stained carved wood cabinets, and a huge stainless gas stove. The red brick walls and crown moulding are an excellent fit for this kitchen. While most Spanish style kitchens have tiled floors, the stained wood floor in this case is certainly lovely.
Very Scandinavian modern, this bright kitchen inspires a clean and minimal style, while the natural wood of the open shelves brings a slight rustic element into the mix. The white cabinets contrast well with the black polished wood flooring, and the grey countertops add a neutral tone to the mix.
Probably the most unique and inspiration kitchen of all, this gem makes use of lots of unfinished wood for open shelves and drawers.

We’ll go with dark rustic modern for this kitchen’s style.
