Why This Room Caught My Eye

15 April 2014 0


Imagine this: Gathering in the kitchen with your family and friends around a big table, serving homemade food, chatting and laughing along. Real happiness seems to include very often the people you love (of course) and good food. And I totally agree with that. Well ok, I would add that a beautiful kitchen and dining area will enhance that happiness of course as I take quite some pleasure in well designed interiors. This kitchen and dining are are a great example of a happy space. Warmth and cosiness with wood and colours evoke an inviting ambiance for happy gatherings. But let me put it in three bullet points:

  • Blue Industrial Pendants: These large industrial pendants in a dusky blue hue are a visual highlight for me. Paired together they really have visual impact and tie together the colour scheme of the entire kitchen design.
  • Mix & Match Chairs: The playfulness of a mix & match approach when it comes to chairs is a winning factor. Various designs and colours mixed together result in a vibrant and interesting effect. 
  • Wood: Hardly any other material has so much warmth and character like wood does. This kitchen is defined by wooden structures and surfaces – from the ceiling over the kitchen fronts to the furniture – definitely a kitchen I would like to cook and dine with family and friends.
Would this kitchen and dining area catch your eye too?

    it’s a funny thing with mixed chairs. i love it when i see it on a pictures like yours. but i tried it myself at home and was totally unhappy with it. it didn’t seem to fit me. uh, is that right in english? hmmm. don’t mind. 🙂
    i love the blue color though. blue color and wood is a great combination.
    have a nice day,

      Stefi, ich stimme Dir zu! Mix & Match ist nicht so einfach hinzubekommen – meist sollte man bei den Stühlen schauen, dass sie relativ ähnlich sind (sei es Größe, Höhe, Material, Farbfamilie etc.), um einen visuell schönen Effekt hinzubekommen. Es kommt auch auf den Rest des Raumes an – schnell kann es nämlich unaufgeräumt und durcheinander wirken.

      Ein schönes Bild. Ich mag gemixte Stühle auch sehr gern (und wir haben bei uns ein paar dunkel blaue Arne Jacobsen Stühle mit ein paar bunten dänischen Pendants gemixt). Wichtig ist, denke ich, dass der Rest des Raums nicht zu unruhig ist. Hier in dem Bild entsteht zum Beispiel Ruhe durch den schönen kräftigen Holztisch aber auch dadurch, dass sich in den Lampen nochmal die gleich Farbe findet wie in 2 Stühlen, finde ich.
      Danke für die schöne Inspiration, LG, Mecki

    Oh wow-I love this room-especially the mix and match chaos. Ours are far too match and I wish they weren’t now!! Lovely find Igor! 🙂

      That’s why I picked it for today’s blog series, Caroline! I have a ‘soft’ mix & match approach at home as I have Eames chairs but in different colours:-)

    This is love at first sight – the colour of the pendants is beautiful, and don’t get me started on the kitchenware on display … mon dieu. The only thing I would change is keeping all the chairs white.

    Μου αρεσει το ροζ σκαμπό… ξεπετάγεται χαριτωμενα μεσα απ όλο αυτά τα γκρι+ουδέτερα χρώματα!

    What I loved about this kitchen was that window overlooking the lush green lawn outside. There’s a sense of freshness and openness that makes the kitchen very inviting to cook and hang around in. Great choice, Igor. To add to the casual setting, I might have removed a couple of chairs and replaced it with a bench.
